So, it doesn’t matter whether you use Instagram or LINE or WhatsApp. Any notification is scanned against this database. And if it contains a weird looking URL, if you click into the URL and you see a carbon copy of a famous e-merchant, but it’s actually fake. We now have an AI system that scans for these tens of thousands of times every day, so that even when the domain name is registered outside of Taiwan, we can work with the ISP so that when you click on that link, it goes to a Minister of Interior Police Force page that says this is a scam, it’s already been blocked. But of course, if you change your DNS to an external DNS, you can still see it. So, it’s not really blocking it, but it is reducing harm for it.
