Google is facing backlash after backlash for its plans to implement a censored version of its search engine inside China. Now, it has been revealed that Google suppressed an internal memo about its Chinese variant and wants phone numbers linked to the searches.

Google is reportedly working on a version of its search engine code-named “Dragonfly” that would block certain sites and terms related to democracy, religion, human rights, and protesting, according to leaked documents reported by The Intercept.
