Users of internet cafes in the UAE will be required to produce a national identity card in order to access the web, under new Interior Ministry laws designed to crack down on cybercrime and child sex abuse.
Authorities will be allowed to monitor everyone who accesses the internet from public locations such as internet cafes, according to Arabic daily Emarat al-Youm.
The newspaper said the restrictions would be come into force “soon”.
