January 30, 2021, Hong Kong, CHINA: Citizens walk past street side vendor that sells SIM Cards in Hong Kong. HKSAR is planning to initiate a programme called Real Name Registration for SIM Cards. The intention of HK government is to stamp out anonymous mobile phone users for ‘security reason’. Government is insisting that such a move has nothing to do with any intention to register true identities of SIM Cards users however many citizens are skeptical about government’s intention of promoting the PLAN.
