Facebook, Google and Twitter won’t give Hong Kong authorities user data for now
Facebook, Google and Twitter won’t give Hong Kong authorities user data for now. Some of the world’s major internet and social media platforms said Monday they will stop processing requests for user data made by Hong Kong law enforcement authorities while they carry out an assessment of a controversial security law imposed by China on the city.

A Google spokesperson told CNN Business that when the law took effect, they “paused production on any new data requests from Hong Kong authorities, and we’ll continue to review the details of the new law.”
The law is a major shift for Hong Kong, which has been run under the “one country, two systems” principle since Britain formally handed authority of the territory over to China in 1997. The internet is not censored in Hong Kong, Asia’s premier financial hub, and residents are able to access social media platforms such as Facebook, Whatsapp and Google () that are banned on the mainland.
