The Chinese Communist Party launched a new app that reportedly targets those who badmouths the party, attempt to question the “official version” of China’s history as dictated by the CCP, as well as engage in what the party deems as “misinformation.”

According to Summit News, this new app comes also with a website. These were recently unveiled by the China’s Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).

Upon the launching, authorities urged users to contribute an “active role” of helping identify “malicious people distorting facts and confusing” others.

“For a while now, some people with ulterior motives…have spread historically nihilistic false statements online, maliciously distorting, slandering and denying Party, national and military history in an attempt to confuse people’s thinking,” states the announcement.

The announcement reiterates the mandate by stating that they hope for most internet users to play an active role in “supervising society.”
