Uzbekistan Government Commences ‘Data Localization’ Program, Tightening Control Over Internet Activity


On November 3, Uzkomnazorat, the country’s primary regulatory agency for communications, restricted access to various online services. For about an hour, Facebook and Telegram were inaccessible.

President Mirziyoyev, who was just re-elected, quickly took action and terminated the head of said institution for his “irresponsible and unilateral” decision.

However, the President recently approved a new Data Localization policy requiring online service providers to physically keep Uzbek residents’ personal data in the nation.

Citizens hailed the restoration of social media access as a “victory,” however this might be a ploy by the government to demonstrate that they have complete control over communication networks and social media access in the country.

In such instances, users who wish to circumvent these harsh measures would utilize a VPN to access social networking sites or any other websites that have been blocked by Uzbek authorities. Some may subscribe to a VPN service, while others may opt for a free VPN app such as Unseen Online – Unlimited VPN.

Unseen Online – Unlimited VPN provides customers with free VPN services that would be of use in situations like these.

If you have similar issues while attempting to access Blocked websites, you may want to consider using a FREE VPN or a paid one.
