China is cracking down on mobile web browsers null

China’s Internet authorities have tightened the country’s censorship laws, looking specifically at mobile-first content. The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) has informed businesses that develop mobile browsers that they have until November 9 to ensure that they crackdown on content that spreads misinformation or violates core socialist values.

“For some time, mobile browsers have grown in an uncivilised way … and have become a gathering place and amplifier for dissemination of chaos by ‘self-media’,” the CAC said. “After the rectification, mobile browsers that still have outstanding problems will be dealt with strictly according to laws and regulations until related businesses are banned.”
