Commission CEO Bassam Al-Sarhan said that the authority addressed the companies licensed to provide Internet services to work to block these applications as quickly as possible.

Sarhan also said that the authority coordinated with the representatives of the licensed companies to follow up on the process of blocking applications that companies have been unable to block, but that most of these applications depend on changing their technical characteristics and identification mark, such as Internet addresses and/or domain names related to or connected to them constantly in order to circumvent the customary blocking mechanisms, and, as a result, it was difficult to continue blocking them.

He said that the authority is cooperating with companies to find a more efficient and effective technical mechanism to implement the blocking process.
