Q: Can the Chinese Internet Police Check Our Emails, Phones?

I'm both paranoid and ignorant, which is definitely not a good combo. Enlighten me: just how easy is it for internet police to spy on our emails for keywords, sky convos or phones?

 

I heard from people that if they want to, the government has the power to pretty much shut down all phone signals for a short period of time (say, in times of crisis)...

there are plenty of search engines that let you find people and many different methods of searching.
the best advice i can give you is lock or delete your social networks.
But anybody determined enough will find another door you can't shut or know about.

They were contacted by "the authorities" for posting stuff on WeChat. They did not say if it was police or their scarier counterpart.

I think they can, if they want, but they don't, to 99.99% of us common folks.

So probably don't say something on the Internet which you would regret later.

Well, there was that guy who had his contract cancelled and his visa rescinded because he posted an "anti-China" statement on his LinkedIn profile while on vacation.

Yeah, normal person should consider that ... Can't love to make money and hate the employer's country ... in the same time.
