Yahoo pulls out of China

Read Time:42 Second

Yahoo said it had stopped allowing its services to be accessible from mainland China “in recognition of the increasingly challenging business and legal environment”.

With this, it becomes the second Western tech brand to leave the country in recent weeks.

The company stopped providing content to users in mainland China as of November 1, 2021.

“In recognition of the increasingly challenging business and legal environment in China, Yahoo’s suite of services will no longer be accessible from mainland China as of November 1,” a Yahoo spokesman told Reuters on Tuesday.

“Yahoo remains committed to the rights of our users and a free and open Internet. We thank our users for their support.”

Yahoo’s move follows that of Microsoft Corp ( MSFT.O ) which pulled Linkedin last month, marking the withdrawal of the last major U.S.-owned social network in China.
