Google, Mozilla, and Apple are blocking an encryption certificate issued by the Kazakhstan government, which citizens were asked to download, and which critics say would enable the government to monitor users' internet traffic.

Axar.az reports citing Businessinsider the update means that Google's Chrome, Mozilla's Firefox, and Apple's Safari browsers will all automatically block the "fake" certificate.

The Kazakhstan government reportedly said the software was a security measure, but Google and Mozilla said that once installed, the certificate would allow the government to decrypt and read anything a user types or posts, including intercepting their account information and passwords.
