Chinese Gov’t to Crack Down on Underage Internet Use

A new monitoring program will be implemented by the government within months, read a story from Xinhuanet today.

The Chinese government will track power usage by internet cafes and cut off their electricity between 12 am and 8 am, hoping to discourage youngsters from surfing.

1,387 internet cafes will be affected by the new procedure, which the government hopes to upgrade in the future by using social security cards to log in to computers in order to track age-restricted site use.
