SHANGHAI: Mainland China users of the US audio app Clubhouse said on Monday they were experiencing Internet access disruptions, stoking concerns that the popular app has been blocked by China’s so-called Great Firewall.
Users of China’s Twitter-like social media app Weibo began posting that they were having issues accessing the Clubhouse app at around 7:30 p.m. local time (1130 GMT).
Some posted screenshots of a message the app displayed when they tried to open it, which said “an SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made.”
