The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority confirmed, on Monday, that it had received an official request from the Ministry of Transport and the Land Transport Regulatory Authority to work to block 28 unlicensed applications to transport passengers.

The CEO of the authority, Bassam Al-Sarhan, said in response to Al-Kingdom’s inquiries that the authority, after receiving an official request, immediately addressed the companies licensed to provide Internet services to work to block these applications as quickly as possible.

Al-Sarhan indicated that the authority has coordinated with the representatives of the licensed companies to follow up the implementation of the blocking of applications that companies have been able to block, but most of these applications depend on changing their technical characteristics and changing their identification mark such as Internet addresses and / or domain names related to or connected to them constantly in order to circumvent the The customary blocking mechanisms are in accordance with the currently applied technologies and are re-run according to new Internet domains and addresses. As a result, it was very difficult to continue blocking it.

Al-Sarhan explained that the Ministry of Transport and the Transport Authority were addressed to the reasons for the blocking process and the technical difficulty facing the authority and Internet companies in maintaining the blocking process.

Al-Sarhan noted that the authority is currently cooperating with companies to find a more efficient and effective technical mechanism to implement the blocking process as fully as possible without any obstacles.
