Woman named Isis banned from Facebook, asked to prove identity

LONDON: A 27-year-old UK woman named Isis was denied access to her Facebook account and asked to send an identity proof by the social networking site as part of its stringent policy to erase all traces of Islamic State terror outfit known by its acronym ISIS.

Isis Thomas, a resident of Bristol in Britain, was asked to change her name after logging on to the site on June 27.

“I just tried to log in and when I did, the password went through and this box came up asking me something about changing my name. I was on Facebook as Isis Worcester, because when I first signed up years ago I didn’t use my real name, which is Isis Thomas, because of where I worked at the time,” Isis said.
