The Indian government has proposed increased capabilities for monitoring and controlling their citizens’ internet usage. Under the new rules they would have the ability to restrict certain content across tech giants such as Google, TikTok and Facebook, as well as trace messages across international services like Whatsapp. Companies would also be required to create more sophisticated screening tools to restrict Indians from seeing “unlawful information or content”.
