That’s A Lot Of Passwords

China’s online population has surged again, rising to 485 million as use of mobile phones to surf the Web spreads.

A government-authorized industry group reported Tuesday that the Chinese online population rose by 15.5 percent over a year earlier.

China’s online population already is by far the world’s biggest and more than 50 percent larger than the entire United States population.

The communist government promotes Internet use for business and education but tries to block access to material it considers subversive or pornographic.
