The rapid growth of online harmful content has seen regulators taking action.

Singapore has introduced a new bill called the Online Safety (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill, which aims to hold online content and communication platforms accountable for egregious or harmful content disseminated to users in Singapore. This content includes information that advocate suicide, self-harm, child sexual exploitation, terrorism and materials that may incite racial or religious tensions or pose a risk to public health.

However, any regulatory action needs to maintain a fine balance between addressing the problem while not affecting the fundamental nature of the internet namely, the free flow of information.
