The UAE government has warned residents against using offensive language or engaging in cyberbullying.
The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) has warned that online insults and offensive comments can result in fines of up to AED 500,000.
This move comes as a part of the government's ongoing efforts to ensure a safe and secure online environment for all UAE residents. The ICA has urged all residents to be responsible and respectful while interacting on social media platforms and other online forums.
The warning has been issued to prevent the spread of hate speech, harassment, and cyberbullying, which can have a negative impact on mental health and wellbeing.
The UAE government is committed to maintaining a safe and inclusive online environment, and the ICA's warning is a step towards achieving this goal.
