China has blocked WhatsApp now , according to a latest report from the New York Times . China is well known for blocking the apps and sometimes slowing them down to that extent that it become useless , which doesn’t allow them to trace their citizens . First Facebook , then instagram and now whatsapp . The report stated that WhatsApp had been “broadly disrupted in China.”
From the July , china started blocking whatsapp features One by One. Users was already facing problems in sending photos , files through whatsapp from the july but was able to send text messages and now last but not the least china has blocked whatsapp totally . Users are not able to even access it now .
The Facebook owned messaging app whatsapp provides message encryption technology through which nobody can trace what messages are going on which was not pleasing Chinese authorities, which closely monitor and restrict cyberspace through their “Great Firewall”.
The WhatsApp shutdown comes at a time when Beijing is preparing for Communist Party congress which is going to start on October 18, when President Xi Jinping is expected to be given a second five-year term as the party’s general secretary.
Now, Coming to the Conclusion , Chinese govt is not going to give any kind of privacy to their citizens . They want to trace each and everything of their citizens . Dont know , why they do not have any trust in their citizens .
