 China has recently finalized its first algorithmic regulations—The Internet Information Service Algorithmic  Recommendation  Management  Provisions.  The  Provisions  request  technology companies to remove discriminatory or biased user tags or refrain from generating or fuelling fake news via algorithms. Under the guidance of the Provisions, Internet users will also be able to  choose  whether  and  to  what  extent  they  wish  to  receive  algorithmic  recommendations. However, what is missing from the Provisions is information on how individual users should report potential abuse to the authorities, above and beyond the channels provided by technology companies.  To  shed  light  on  the  issue,  this  article  discusses  the  need  for  a  public-facing platform that could allow people to timely and effectively communicate with authorities who can  help  address  their  algorithmic  security  concerns,  as  opposed  to  relying  on  solutions provided by Internet companies that might be the very source of their issues.
