JAKARTADAILY.ID – Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information (Kominfo) delivered on its threat to block services that have not registered with the ministry as a PSE, blocking several online services, including giants like Steam and Amazon. 
 
While most have signed up after getting blocked, some companies like Yahoo!, Origin, and Epic Games have not responded.
 
Director General of Informatics Applications (Aptika) Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan, conveyed that regarding this access termination, his party had made several follow-up efforts.

PayPal access has been temporarily opened from Sunday, July 31, 2022, at 08.00 WIB until Friday, August 5, 2022, at 23.59 WIB. It also continues to try to establish communication with PayPal, but so far they have not responded.

"At the same time, we continue to try to communicate with PayPal managers, because until now, although we have tried to communicate in various ways, PayPal has not responded at all," said Semuel in a statement published by the Ministry of Communications on Monday, August 1, 2022.
