A discovery that Saudi male guardians are automatically getting text messages about cross-border movements of female dependants has caused a Twitter uproar. “Hello Taliban, herewith some tips from the Saudi e-government!” read one post, while another suggested microchips. Attention was drawn to the system when a man travelling with his wife got an alert as they left Riyadh airport. Saudi women are denied the right to travel without their guardian’s consent and are also banned from driving.
