New free videochat 2013 uncensored
Differentiating content access based on user registration seemingly creates a “one app, two systems” model of censorship. When you send a message it passes through a remote server that contains rules for implementing censorship.If the message includes a keyword that has been targeted for blocking, the message will not be sent.We found that keyword filtering is enabled on We Chat for users with accounts registered to mainland China phone numbers.
However, we did find We proceed by providing an overview of the legal and regulatory system in China, past work on censorship on We Chat, report our new results, and conclude with a discussion on the implications of our findings.
Despite these concerns, there is limited technical research into the operation and scale of content monitoring and filtering.
In this report, we provide the first systematic analysis of keyword censorship and URL filtering on We Chat to determine how the app filters content and the type of content that is blocked.
Documenting censorship on a system with a server-side implementation such as We Chat’s requires devising a sample of keywords to test, running those keywords through the app, and recording the results.
We used a sample of keywords found blocked on other apps used in China and systematically tested that sample in two modes: one-to-one chat and group chat.We Chat, (Weixin 微信 in Chinese), is the dominant chat application in China and fourth largest in the world, with 806 million monthly active users.
