Nhiều tài khoản Facebook tại Việt Nam có nguy cơ bị khoá vĩnh viễn
Many Facebook accounts in Vietnam have received notices of suspension due to violations of community policy.


According to VietNamNet’s research, a sensitive video clip related to minors has been spread on Facebook in recent days. People who spread this video clip may have violated Facebook's community standards so their accounts have been temporarily suspended.

On the morning of August 18, many links of this clip were disabled, proving that this platform is very strict in distributing sensitive content related to children.

Many Facebook users have voiced opposition to the accounts that posted the clip and given warnings of information security and violations of the law. The distribution of sensitive clips and photos on social networks can be handled in accordance with Decree No. 72/2013/ND-CP of the Vietnamese Government on management, provision, use of Internet services and online information.

Users are also advised not to click on shared links because criminals can take advantage of this to spread malicious code onto users' devices.

As many users have their accounts locked, hackers have offered unlocking services. However, users should not use such services to avoid losing money and personal information.
