The other side to this would be that many people’s innocent snaps would be considered risque in Saudi and most visitors if they had their laptops checked would probably contravene something!
Therefore I would not be overly concerned about pictures on my laptop, flash-drives or external disc drives unless I was actually bringing in real porn!
You will find that internet access in Saudi Arabia is heavily censored, you will find it almost impossible to access a porn website from Saudi Arabia.
You will also find it difficult to use proxy servers and the like to fool the system into thinking you are not in KSA, it is best to have them set up for your laptop before you get into the kingdom if you want to use them.
You will also find that if you are able to connect your satellite decoder to the internet you can watch many of these channels for free despite them being totally against the law in Saudi Arabia.Prior to the introduction of satellite broadcasting, Saudi TV channels One and Two had a reach of 60% of the adult Saudi population.The exception was with regard to Eastern Province audiences who traditionally tuned into Bahrain TV.However in all of these cases the phones belonged to women from the Philippines, India or Indonesia and they were harassed by the Mutawa for every reason they could think of, a few tearfully confided as to having been sexually abused by these so called religious police after being threatened with arrest as being prostitutes for whatever charges they could make up!Women in Saudi Arabia are not treated very well, especially expat women who will be seen as an easy target by many Saudi Bullies.
