It has been reported that popular web pages of Google have been banned in Iran. The content of the Google web pages have been found mutilated and they will be filtered before making the web pages accessible in Iran once again.
The information regarding blocking the web pages was made through mobile texts. Iranians having Gmail account were facing difficulties in accessing the account and their emails. They were asked to go through virtual private network software for getting a full access to their Gmail accounts.
It has been informed that the virtual private network or VPN is used by tech savvy Iranians for dealing with online censorship. Gmail is a very popular email address used by business persons and workers for communicating.
In the month of February as well, the authorities of Iran cut the access to Google and Gmail because of elections. Besides, many social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are also being censored by the authorities of Iran. Mohammad Soleimani, a lawmaker said, “Cutting access to the Internet is not possible at all, because it would amount to imposing sanctions on ourselves, which would not be logical. However, the filtering will remain in place”.
