Chinese language regulators go to Didi for cybersecurity probe

GUANGZHOU, China – Officials from seven Chinese government agencies visited Didi’s offices on Friday to conduct a cybersecurity clearance.

This month, days after its high profile listing in the US, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) announced a cybersecurity clearance of Didi.

The ride-hailing giant was forced to stop registering new users and its app was also removed from the Chinese app stores.

The CAC, China’s leading cyberspace regulator, alleged that Didi illegally collected user data.

The CAC and the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), the leading antitrust authority, were among the seven departments that Didi visited to review network security.
