China is using a new app "Smart Religion" to spy on believers who attend church services in China.

Applicants must fill in personal information before they attend a church service, including their name, phone number, government ID number, permanent residence, occupation, and date of birth.

China is rolling out this service in Henan province.

China's government is lazy. This comes from having 'legal' control. America's legal control is in the hands of the jury, the people. Government has to work a lot harder for control. There is no comparison, China America. However, an American religion app might be the thing to advertise your church with.
