Beijing Launches New Rule: Residents Must Pass Facial Recognition Test to Surf Internet

https://www.theepochtimes.com/beiji...ZuP4JNcJm431DqDrTRZ4Tc2yxtP8L3-gB6nngzc5xlkOg

The Chinese regime announced a new rule which requires residents to pass a facial recognition test in order to apply for an internet connection via smartphone or computer.

The rule will be implemented from Dec. 1, 2019. In addition, no cell phone or landline number can be transferred to another person privately.

This is an upgraded restriction after the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) required all applicants to present a valid ID and personal information to register for a cell phone or a landline number since January 2015.

New Rule
MIIT published the new rule on its official website and distributed it to all telecom carriers on Sept. 27, which includes three main requests.

First, all telecom carriers must use facial recognition to test whether an applicant who applies for internet connection is the owner of the ID that they use since Dec. 1. At the same time, the carriers must test that the ID is genuine and valid.

Second, all telecom carriers must upgrade their service’s terms and conditions and notify all their customers that they are not allowed to transfer or resell their cell phone SIM card to another person by the end of November 2019.

Third, telecom carriers should help their customers to check whether there are cell phone or landline numbers that don’t belong to them but registered under their names since Dec. 1. For unidentified numbers, the telecom carries must investigate and close the lines immediately.

MIIT said in the notice that it will arrange for supervisors to check each telecom carrier’s performance, and will arrange inspections to make sure all carriers will follow the rule strictly.

Purpose
“The reason why the Chinese regime asks people to register their real identities to surf the internet is because it wants to control people’s speech,” U.S.-based commentator Tang Jingyuan told The Epoch Times on Sept. 27.

Authorities arrested hundreds of Chinese people in recent years because they posted a topic that the regime deemed sensitive, including the most recent Hong Kong protests.

“MIIT’s new rule on using facial recognition to identify an internet user means the government can easily track their online activities, including their social media posts and websites they visit,” Tang said.“Then these people become scared of sharing their real opinions online because their comments could anger the authorities and they could get arrested for it.”

Tang concluded: “I think MIIT’s new rule takes away freedom of speech from Chinese people completely.”

Facial Recognition in China
The Chinese regime has used facial recognition systems to monitor people for several years now.

In cities and public spaces such as train stations, airports, government buildings, and entrances of museums, police use smart glasses to check each passerby’s identity and whether they have a criminal record.

On the streets, millions of surveillance cameras capture and track people’s movements.

At crosswalks, facial recognition systems record jaywalkers, who are then fined 20 yuan ($2.81), and docked points on their social credit score. The Chinese regime’s social credit system assigns each citizen a score of social “trustworthiness.” A person with a low social credit score may not be allowed to board a train or airplane, or their child may not be admitted to a reputable school.

Inside classrooms, facial recognition technology monitors each student and reports their actions to the teacher and parents.

Even inside public restrooms, tourists and residents have to use facial recognition system to get toilet paper.

The Chinese regime hopes to install enough surveillance cameras to cover the entire country.

According to the latest report of U.S. based market research firm IDC, China spent $10.6 billion on video surveillance equipment in 2018, and spending will reach $20.1 billion in 2023. 64.3 percent of the spending in 2018 accounted for surveillance cameras.

IDC reported on Jan. 30 that it predicted China would have 2.76 billion surveillance cameras installed in 2022.

The Chinese people tolerated the Cultural Revolution with complete closing of universities and professionals interned into rice fields just 43 years ago, so I doubt anyone will revolt with any success this time. Not to be mean but in my professional experiences, Chinese folks are followers, not leaders most likely from generations of conditioning. Have personally seen examples of rebels taught lessons like having their family summoned back to China if they make waves here. That was in the 1990s. Many want to stay for a reason, but go back when told to.

Sounds like a good way to prevent the masses from seeking the truth about who rules over them.

That must be some new software that can tell the differences among Chinese. I can see it among Japs, Koreans and Gooks, but most Chinks have black hair and slanty eyes.

The Chinese are a very unique people who have little regard for life. You think the leftists don't care about rip[ping fetuses from the mother's womb is bad, you should do some lurking on 4chan when there's a thread about the Chins. The video that's been recorded that demonstrates the evil they do to people and animals and their lack of respect for life in general is astounding and almost unimaginable.

If you don't like 4chan go to Liveleak.com, which is where these videos are mostly posted on 4chan from.
Note: If you have a weak stomach I wouldn't recommend you partake.

It's really horrible! You'll never view China and the Chinese people the same way again after watching some of these videos. (I've watched them because I always seek truth, even that truth which is repulsive and inhumane. It's still truth and knowing the truth is the best we can hope for!
