United Arab Emirates

Internet Access

The United Arab Emirates pervasively blocks local and regional political content including oppositional websites and news media. It blocks websites of Qatari official media and news dailies. It also blocks websites with content which is critical of the faith of Islam. The government mass blocks social content categories such as sex, nudity, and dating, as well as Internet tools such as VoIP, filtering avoidance tools, and privacy protection services. UAE’s ISP du employs technology provided by Netsweeper Inc. to mass block entire content categories.
