Chinese government has recently approved a new law, which may have an big impact on the various aspects of the Internet in the country.

The new law, according to the Daily Mail portal, exacerbates censorship policies already in place in China. One of the topics that is marking the same lies in the ban on Internet browsing on anonymous media.

Operators will be responsible for identifying each Internet user in the country. To this end, they must implement authentication measures that allow each user to be identified before accessing the Internet, in addition to monitoring their activity.

The law also states, that it's expressly forbidden to publish any online content that could harm national honor or cause disturbances. Any company operating in the country providing Internet services, has to provide data to the government, if they required.
