Facebook could be shut down in Vietnam if it does not bow to the government

The social media giant Facebook got into trouble with the Australian government last September. This time, however, Mark Zuckerberg’s social media has caught the wrath of the Vietnamese government. If action is not taken immediately and the government does not bow down, Facebook may be banned in that country. What exactly is the reason for such disagreement? Let’s find out.

According to a Reuters report, the Vietnamese government is pressuring Facebook to censor local political posts. In April, Facebook imposed restrictions on anti-state posts by local users at the behest of the Vietnamese government. But it is becoming clear from their recent steps that the government of that country is not satisfied with this either.

According to a Facebook official, the company signed an agreement with the Vietnamese government in April and is still trying to abide by the agreement. But even then it is not possible for them to meet the expectations of the government. Now the government wants to impose new laws and penalties on them.

In response to a Reuters query, Vietnam’s foreign ministry said Facebook must comply with local laws and ensure that information that violates Vietnamese customs and state interests is not leaked.

In a report released on Friday, Facebook said it had blocked access to 634 items in the past six months in response to a request from the Vietnamese government to remove anti-state content. But in recent months they have been pressured to censor more content and threatened to shut down Facebook completely in Vietnam if they disobeyed government orders.

However, Amnesty International says that wherever Facebook does business in the world, it has a responsibility to respect the human rights of those countries. Vietnam is no exception. Amnesty claims that Facebook is only trying to gain practical business advantage from Vietnam but is failing to respect the country’s human rights.

By the way, Facebook has about 60 million users in Vietnam. It is also used as an e-commerce platform and a means of expressing political dissent. The US company also earns বছরে 1 billion a year in revenue from Vietnam. Facebook is currently under surveillance by the Vietnamese government. However, it goes without saying that if the government takes any negative action against Facebook in the coming days, it will have a huge impact.

Do you use dating apps to find people you like?  Refrain from doing these things

At present, many people are using different dating apps to find the people in their minds. In just a few minutes, these virtual apps let users find new friends. These apps are definitely fun, but like all other online services, they have some disadvantages. The most dangerous of which is falling into the trap of various scammers and stockers. Many people use these apps with confidence, thinking that there is no harm in providing personal information to a stranger. But users may unknowingly use their data for various purposes. Today in this post we will tell you what you need to keep in mind while using dating app.

1. Social media account attachment with dating apps

Many users associate social media accounts with dating apps. But this is not at all safe, especially if users are very active on social media. In this case, scammers can easily customize phishing messages by tracking your Facebook, Instagram pages. For example, if you are an animal lover and you have pictures and videos of various animals on Facebook and Instagram, scammers can send phishing messages asking for donations to save a helpless animal.

2. The same profile photo used everywhere

In this case, we recommend that you always use a separate profile photo for dating applications. Because any stalker, through the Google Image Reverse Search feature, can track your online activity. For example, if you set the same profile photo on social media profiles, LinkedIn and other websites, then put the same picture in the dating application, then the miscreants can only google your picture and browse your LinkedIn profile or other information.

3. Using the same password

Using primary email IDs, phone numbers or the same password in dating applications is not secure in terms of data protection. It’s best to use a different email ID and not a phone number to sign in to dating apps. Also, always use a different password for dating apps that you don’t normally use in any other account.

4. Excessive personal sharing

Don’t share personal information like your school name, college, office, surname, work profile etc. in dating applications. Because scammers can track you by collecting this information. Also refrain from sharing your date of birth and address on public profiles. Your information can be easily stolen using this information. Also, do not give any updates about your financial status in dating applications.

5. Profile verification

Many dating sites or marriage websites request to upload official documents like passport, voter ID card, Aadhaar card to verify the user’s profile. Remember, this data is saved by the website or app creators. The official ID details of the user can be easily accessed if they are hacked in any way.
