According to a report via techmoran.com, the Communications Commission of Kenya (CA) is in the process of drafting regulations which will require anyone accessing the internet through public hotspots to log in using their personal credentials and details.
Director General, Francis Wangusi, told media that they are also considering the idea of ensuring public Wi-Fi is not accessed without a log-in.
“Public log-in will require one’s passport number, ID number or telephone number,” Wangusi stated. This comes after the Director General was put in charge of fighting cybercrime.
Wangusi also said that the regulator would work on regulations that will require any companies registered locally to operate in Kenya to have a local domain name.
