The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a Middle Eastern monarchy, ruled by the powerful Hashemite Family for generations. According to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), over 60 percent of Jordanian population had internet access in late 2017, rising to approximately 80 percent with 8,7 million users in 2019. The Jordanian constitution calls for and protects freedom of information and speech, and civil rights are for the most part respected by the government.
However, authorities have monitored and restricted online activity on numerous occasions. In 2015, the Jordanian government blocked access to WhatsApp, Instagram, and Viber on days that secondary school students took their national exam. Another example was the arrest of several online activists for criticizing public officials or calling for reform. These events show an evident tendency of the Jordanian government to monitor its citizens’ internet activity.
Jordan has several laws allowing online monitoring. The Telecommunication Law permits the monitoring of communication in accordance with a court order. Another, The Anti-Terrorism Law, allows surveillance based on “reliable” information that links a person to “terrorist activities”, but without clarifying what are such activities. These laws opened the door for extensive state intrusions in internet communications, harming online safety and privacy.
Aiming to access the Internet freely, Jordanians use secure VPN connections. Even tourists are advised to alter their IP address to improve their privacy and freedom online. A VPN connection encrypts data and maintains anonymity, limiting government surveillance.
