Russia Tries to Block Telegram with Experimental Technology
The Russian government is reportedly trying out a more precise technology that can block individual services to prevent the use of Telegram in the country.
Sources say that a technology called Deep Packet Inspection that analyzes data flows online is being tested, but results have been unsuccessful so far as it still affected other unrelated services. As of today, Telegram is still available in the region.
Russia’s earlier attempts to block the popular encrypted app back in April hit a wall after it brought down access to a number of other services such as Viber calls, Volvo’s cloud-based apps, and apps that control Xiaomi video cameras.
