Full story: Coronavirus...Internet censorship and surveillance
It has emerged that analysts at UK's communication surveillance organisation, GCHQ, have been given access to mobile phone data to track the public's movements during the national lockdown.

GCHQ has embedded a team in a Downing Street to provide Boris Johnson with real-time intelligence about the state of coronavirus infections in the UK.

The intelligence analysts have also been examining Google and other internet data on employment, a key indicator of the job market. Also data has been used to analyse travel patterns and whether people self isolate after foreign travel.

It is claimed that such data is only been used in anonymised format, but no doubt it could theoretically be used for enforcement of the lockdown rules.

France arrests bar owners for not tracking customers using the bar's free WiFi

Full story: Comms Snooping in France...French database to monitor political activists
Five bar owners in France have been arrested in Grenoble for offering public WiFi without keeping connection logs and spying on its users.

All establishments offering public WiFi in France are required to keep logs tracking WiFi users since 2006. Shockingly, cafe and bar owners found in violation of this law face a maximum of one year in prison and a maximum fine of euro 75,000.

The bar owners said they were unaware of the law, but whether restaurants are aware of the law or not, it does not change the fact that the law is a testament to the infringement of privacy by the French government. The existence of the law means that the public should avoid using public WiFi and/or use a VPN.
