UAE blocks online gaming websites that threaten the society

UAE Attorney-General Dr. Hamad Saif Al Shamsi has ordered to block a number of online gaming websites, following authentic reports received on the adverse impact of these games on youngsters’ behaviour and their infiltration into their personal and family lives, while pushing them into adopting forms of conduct that threaten the society. The games include Roblox, My Friend Cayla, Blue Whale, Cloudpets, and Mariam.

Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) has been tasked with taking all the necessary measures to restrict these sites in collaboration with the telecommunication firms and internet service providers in the country. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has also been assigned to continue the investigation to find other suspected infringing websites and report its findings to the Public Attorney.
