On 21 July 2023, the Ministry of Communication and Information of Singapore issued a declaration under the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA) to label the TOC website, its Twitter account, LinkedIn page, and Facebook page as Declared Online Locations (DOLs) from 22 July 2023 until 21 July 2025.

As a result of the declaration, it would be an offence for anyone to benefit financially from operating the DOLs and contribute financially to them. Therefore, TOC will be removing all ads from its website and cancelling the existing subscription framework. However, it should be noted that TOC’s YouTube and Instagram are not part of the DOLs.
