We're compiling a list of countries that are known to enforce internet censorship on their citizens.

These are countries that try to block or limit access to certain websites, apps or internet services:
- Iran
- China
- Russia

- India

Are you familiar with the situation in other countries? Please comment.

Your question is a bit too broad. All countries block certain things such as underage stuff etc.
I think question should be where the governments draw the line. Huge difference between keeping internet safe and invading peoples rights/privacy.

You can add all middle east countries to the list.
Also some countries literally plug off the internet (%99 bandwidth restriction) when there is an incident like bombing or on election days..

Very good points and I agree with you, different countries draw the line in different places when it comes to online censorship.

According to wikipedia, Turkmenistan runs the third most stringent censorship program in the world.

Update: India, Iran leading the top of the world’s worst countries for internet censorship last year

The internet censorship yearly recap shows around half the world’s population – about 4.2 billion - suffered a politically motivated internet blackout in 2022.

Iran seeks to be #1 among others
It is getting even worse than China
Specially west and south parts
Cities that are worst
- Tehran (Capital)
- Kurdistan (west)
- Systan - Baluchestan (south)
