Penang Smart Parking : RM4.40 Glitch Fixed!

The Penang Smart Parking glitch that reduced everyone’s account balance to just RM4.40 has been FIXED!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Penang Smart Parking Glitch Reduced Balance To RM4.40!

On 19 January 2022, drivers in Penang received a surprise when their Penang Smart Parking app showed a balance of just RM 4.40.

Many took to social media to ask if their accounts were hacked, or claim that the Penang Smart Parking app was hacked.

Currently, it does NOT appear to be a hack, as everyone reported the same RM4.40 balance in their account.

 

Penang Smart Parking Glitch Fixed, Balances Synced By Tomorrow!

When the problem first cropped up, the Penang Smart Parking team asked the public not to worry if their account balance shows RM4.40, as their eWallet balances remain secure and intact.

At 5:51 PM, the PSP team announced that they successfully fixed the problem, and restored the correct eWallet record.

All transactions will be synchronised after operating hours today at 6:00 PM, and is expected to be completed by 6 AM on 20 January 2022.

How To Enable + Disable MySJ Trace In MySejahtera : Ver. 4.0

Here is our UPDATED video + pictorial guide on how to ENABLE and DISABLE MySJ Trace in MySejahtera!

Why Enable MySJ Trace In MySejahtera?

MySJ Trace is a new MySejahtera feature, which allows for more accurate contact tracing, and removes the need to manually check out from locations.

Once enabled, your phone will use Bluetooth to communicate with other phones that have MySJ Trace enabled, to determine the distance and length of contact. This eliminates the need to manually check-out.

The proximity data it collects allows Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) to accurately determine if you are a close contact of a COVID-19 positive person.

Obviously, this feature only works if everyone has MySJ Trace enabled, so please enable it!

Why Disable MySJ Trace In MySejahtera?

Some people are worried that the government is using MySJ Trace to track their movements, but that’s really not possible.

Others are worried about the battery life that the persistent Bluetooth connection will consume. As it uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, the power consumption is very low.

Even so, the battery consumption is a valid concern for some users, especially those who are using smartphones with very small or ageing batteries.

However, I highly recommend you try MySJ Trace before turning it off and on like that. From my personal experience, it really uses very little power.

How To Enable + Disable MySJ Trace In MySejahtera!

I created this video to show you how to enable and disable MySJ Trace in MySejahtera.

Note : This is the extended version, which includes the method to permanently disable MySJ Trace.

For those who prefer a step-by-step guide with pictures, please skip to the next section.

 

How To Enable MySJ Trace In MySejahtera?

MySJ Trace is (currently) NOT mandatory and is an opt-in feature, so you actually have to manually enable it, if you want to participate.

Step 1 : Update to the MySejahtera version that has MySJ Trace.

Step 2 : Open MySejahtera, and you will see a black MySJ Trace section in the default Check-in screen.

Step 3 : Tap on Setup MySJ Trace to begin the setup process.

Step 4 : Tap on the Start button in the initial explainer screen.

Step 5 : Tap the I agree button to consent to give your “interaction information” for the past 14 days to the Malaysia Ministry of Health for “contact tracing purposes”.

Step 6 : In the App Permissions screen, tap on the Allow button.

Step 7 : First, you will be asked to allow MySejahtera to access your smartphone’s location. Tap on While using the app.

Step 8 : Next, you will be asked to allow MySejahtera to detect your location all the time. Tap on Allow all the time.

Step 9 : Now, you will be asked to enable Bluetooth, if it is not already enabled.

Step 10 : Once all necessary permissions have been enabled, just tap on the Close button.

That’s it! You have now activated MySJ Trace in MySejahtera.

 

What If You Can’t Enable MySJ Trace In MySejahtera?

Quite a few people have reported to us that tapping on the Allow button doesn’t do anything (Step 6). Here are some solutions…

iOS Devices : Manually Turn On Bluetooth

In your iOS device, there are two ways to turn on Bluetooth :

  1. Go to Settings > Bluetooth, and tap on the toggle to turn it on
  2. Pull down the Notification Center, and tap on the Bluetooth icon to turn it on.

After turning on Bluetooth manually, set up MySJ Trace again from Step 3. It should now work.

Android Devices : Manually Turn On Bluetooth + Location

In your Android device, there are two ways to turn on Bluetooth :

  1. Go to Settings > Connections, and tap on the Bluetooth toggle to turn it on
  2. Pull down the notification tray, and tap on the Bluetooth icon to turn it on.

After turning on Bluetooth manually, you should also manually enable Location permission :

Step 1 : Go to Settings > Apps > MySejahtera > Permissions.

Step 2 : Tap on the Location option under the list of Allowed permissions.

Step 3 : Tap on Allow All the time.

After this, set up MySJ Trace again from Step 3. It should now work.

 

How To Disable MySJ Trace In MySejahtera?

Quickly + Temporarily Disable MySJ Trace

MySejahtera does not offer any option to turn off MySJ Trace once you set it up, but if you prefer to turn off MySJ Trace to “protect your privacy“, or to save a little power, there is an easy way to do it.

All you have to do is disable Bluetooth connectivity, and MySJ Trace is immediately disabled. That’s because MySJ Trace relies on Bluetooth to determine your proximity to other users.

You can do that by pulling down the notification tray in your smartphone, and tapping on the active Bluetooth icon to disable it. Alternatively, you can disable it in your device settings.

Once disabled, the MySJ Trace section in the MySejahtera check-in screen will now ask you to setup again. But there is no need to set it up again.

Whenever you want to re-enable MySJ Trace, all you have to do is re-enable Bluetooth, and MySJ Trace will immediately start working again. Essentially, your smartphone’s Bluetooth connectivity now acts as a toggle for MySJ Trace.

Permanently Disable MySJ Trace

For those who want to permanently disable MySJ Trace, without disabling Bluetooth, reinstalling MySejahtera works for both Android and iOS devices. This is the only known solution for iOS devices.

Android devices, on the other hand, have two alternatives – disabling location permission, or clearing app data.

Option A : Disable Location Permission

Here are the steps to disable Location Permission for MySejahtera in your Android device :

Step 1 : Go to Settings > Apps > MySejahtera > Permissions.

Step 2 : Tap on the Location option under the list of Allowed permissions.

Step 3 : Tap on Allow only while using the app or Deny.

That’s it! Once you go out, MySJ Trace will be permanently disabled in MySejahtera.

Credit : I would like to thank Kyle Hudsons for pointing this out to us.

Option B : Clear MySejahtera App Data

Here are the steps to clear the MySejahtera app data in your Android device :

Step 1 : Go to Settings > Apps > MySejahtera > Storage.

Step 2 : Tap on Clear data. You will be warned that this will remove your MySejahtera account information and database.

Please be warned that if you proceed, your MySejahtera account information will be cleared, together with your past contact history.

Your COVID-19 vaccination history and certificate are stored in the cloud and remain safe, but you will need to log into your MySejahtera account again.

So please do NOT proceed unless you remember your MySJ ID and password!

Step 3 : If you are sure, tap on the OK option to clear the MySejahtera data.

Step 4 : Launch MySejahtera, and log into MySejahtera using your MySJ ID (either your mobile number or email address), and your password.

After you log in, you will see that MySJ Trace has been disabled. You will need to setup MySJ Trace (again) to enable it.

Why The Government Can’t Use MySJ Trace To Track You!

People are worried that MySJ Trace lets the government track their location and movements 24/7.

Find out WHY this is simply not possible!

 

Claim : Government Can Use MySJ Trace To Track You 24/7

MySJ Trace is a new contact tracing feature that was just introduced in the MySejahtera app.

People are claiming that the government can use it to track your movements 24/7. Here is one example :

so the govt can trace our exact location at any given moment. great.

Though I guess there is probably several other apps or with the telcos help that they can already do exactly that.

Although surprisingly the police have been totally unable to locate the ex husband of Indira Gandhi or her children that the ex husband abducted, despite the court ordering the police to do so.

That’s really a typical response to any new MySejahtera feature – the government is introducing it to snoop on us. Our privacy is gone! They will know where we are!

Let’s find out what the facts really are…

Read more : Fact Check : Fat Bidin Claims On MySejahtera Snooping!

 

Truth : No One Can Use MySJ Trace To Track You 24/7

The truth is – this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS being shared on WhatsApp, and here are the reasons why it’s not possible for anyone to use it to track you 24/7…

Fact #1 : MySJ Trace Only Tracks Your Proximity

MySJ Trace does not actually detect your location, which is why you still need to check into locations manually.

It only detects and logs the Bluetooth signals of nearby smartphones with MySJ Trace enabled, to determine how close they are and how long they remain in proximity.

MySJ Trace also broadcasts itself to nearby devices, so that they can log its presence, distance and length of contact.

Fact #2 : MySJ Trace Does Not Collect Location Data

MySJ Trace does not collect geolocation data, only these data:

  • Unique User ID (UUID) that is created by the MySejahtera app.
  • Operating system version (Android or iOS)
  • Time of contact
  • Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI)

The Malaysia Ministry of Health confirmed this in no. 17 of their FAQ, stating that “geolocation data will not be collected“.

So there’s no way for the government to actually know where you are using only MySJ Trace data.

Read more : New MySJ Trace Feature : What You Need To Know!
Read more : How To Enable + Disable MySJ Trace In MySejahtera!

 

Fact #3 : MySJ Trace Only Stores 14 Days Of Data

The data that MySJ Trace records is only stored for the last 14 days, on a first-in, first out (FIFO) basis.

All data older than the most recent 14 days are automatically purged.

So even if a hacker gains access to it, he/she will only have access to your proximity contact data for the last 14 days.

Fact #4 : MySJ Trace Does Not Transmit Your Data Automatically

The proximity contact data that MySJ Trace logs is NOT automatically transmitted to the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM).

Only when you are identified as COVID-19 positive, will you be asked to submit your proximity contact data for the last 14 days.

Fact #5 : MySJ Trace Data Is Stored + Used Only By KKM

Your proximity data that you upload will be stored in a secured database server managed by the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM).

Only KKM has access to your uploaded proximity data, which will be used to determine your close contacts so they can be notified.

Read more : MySJ Trace : Answers To Your Frequently Asked Questions!

Fact #6 : We Are Not That Interesting…

Frankly, most of us are not that interesting to the government. They are not interested in where you live or travel to, what you eat or buy, or even who you are sleeping with.

All that data is interesting and useful to corporations, but not the Malaysian government. Please remember – you are living in Malaysia, not China or North Korea.

Why would the government want to know where you are, or where you have gone, or who you have met?

Fact #7 : There Are Easier Ways To Find You…

Finally, the “fear” of the government using MySJ Trace to track where you are at all times is frankly, ludicrous because there are far easier ways to do it.

The truth is – our geolocation data is readily available to your mobile service provider, as well as cloud and social media service providers (Google, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, etc.)

If the government really wants to know where you are, they can simply get a court order to force your mobile service provider to tell them where you are right now.

They don’t have to rely on an opt-in feature in the MySejahtera app, and wait until you submit your own proximity data…

Now that you know the facts, please TURN ON MySJ Trace, to improve contact tracing!

And please SHARE this fact check with your family and friends!

New MySJ Trace Feature : What You Need To Know!

MySejahtera has a new feature called MySJ Trace, which logs your close contacts for more accurate contact tracing.

Here is what you need to know about the new MySejahtera feature!

 

MySJ Trace : New Tracking Feature In MySejahtera

Currently, MySejahtera relies on manual logging in at various entry points, which results in many false positives and false negatives.

  • false positive : you wrongly get identified as a close or casual contact
  • false negative : you are not flagged as a close contact, even when you come into close proximity with a COVID-19 positive person

To eliminate those errors, MySejahtera is introducing a new and more accurate contact tracing feature called MySJ Trace.

Similar to Singapore’s TraceTogether app, MySJ Trace uses Bluetooth technology to more accurately determine your proximity to other people, so MySejahtera can better determine if you are a close contact, or not.

It also removes the need to manually check out from the locations you checked in earlier.

13. Must Bluetooth be activated at all times?

Yes, Bluetooth must be activated at all times for MySJ Trace to work properly.

14. Will Bluetooth usage cause high battery usage?

Unlike using Bluetooth to stream music or to a wireless headphone continuously, MySJ Trace uses Bluetooth to only transmit its presence periodically. As such, it uses significantly less power.

15. Will the app use significant battery power if MySJ Trace is left running all the time?

MySJ Trace uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to minimise battery usage. Therefore, the app does not use significant amounts of battery power to collect persistent contact tracing information.

16. Will MySJ Trace Bluetooth usage affect my other Bluetooth accessories?

MySJ Trace does not affect the use or performance of other Bluetooth accessories like wireless speakers, wireless earphones or headphones, or smartwatches.

For iOS, only the Bluetooth function needs to be enabled.

WW3 Game Goes Viral With Map Of West Taiwan + Uyghur!

A World War 3 strategy game has cleverly gone viral, with its map of West Taiwan and an Uyghur nation!

Take a look at what happen!

 

WW3 Game Goes Viral With Map Of West Taiwan + Uyghur Nation!

Games by smaller developers often have a tough time going viral, which is especially important for F2P (free-to-play) massively-multiplayer online games.

Bytro Labs – the German developer of the mobile version of Conflict of Nations: World War 3, appears to have hit the nail on the head with their latest advertisement.

On 3 December 2021, Bytro Labs started advertising their mobile game on Facebook using a map of a tiny China, with a massive West Taiwan to the south, and even an Uyghur nation to the west!

It seemed to be an intentional attempt to go viral, and boy, did they succeed!

 

Chinese Netizens Outraged Over Map Of West Taiwan + Uyghur Nation!

Needless to say, the Conflict of Nations: World War 3 advertisement quickly went viral, with Chinese netizens outraged over the map showing West Taiwan and an Uyghur nation.

Some Chinese websites and netizens derisively noted the many “mistakes” in the map :

  • Mainland China was labelled as West Taiwan
  • Mongolia was labelled as China
  • The Xinjiang province was labelled as the Uyghur nation
  • The nine-dash line was missing

What those Chinese netizens don’t realise is that Conflict of Nations: WW3 is military strategy game set in the future. So the maps don’t really have make sense. After all, World War 3 itself has not happened!

It’s no different than playing any of the Civilizations game to end up with Germany conquering America. Or watching alternate history shows like The Man in the High Castle or For All Mankind.

More importantly, the game itself does not have those “mistakes” – the actual map uses the correct official name and boundary for each country.

 

Bytro Labs Harnessed Little Pink Army For Free Marketing?

Chinese netizens seem to believe that this was an intentional attempt to besmirch their beloved Middle Kingdom, sharing the screenshots of the advertisement and criticising it ad nauseam.

But this is likely a clever way for Bytro Labs to harness China’s Little Pink (小粉红, xiǎo fěnhóng) army for free marketing.

They probably decided to emulate how Malaysian singer-songwriter, Namewee, leveraged the Chinese Little Pink army to go viral with his satirical song, It Might Break Your Pinky Heart!

After all, the other “mistakes” in the map suggests that Bytro Labs was trying to “trigger” controversy in multiple countries. But only Chinese netizens took the bait.

  • Nepal was labelled as Georgia
  • Laos is now part of Vietnam
  • There is a country called Kashmir

Bytro Labs only ran that Facebook advertisement for a short time, but they succeeded in getting their game noticed worldwide, even by gamers who would never have given the game another thought.

And the Little Pink army is now actively engaged in helping them reach out to more people. You just can’t beat that kind of FREE viral marketing.

Bytro Labs and Namewee’s recent success in harnessing the Little Pink army could encourage more businesses that don’t rely on the Chinese market, to leverage their sensitivities to go viral.

Interesting times indeed!

PDRM + JPJ Traffic Offences : How To Get 80% Discount?

The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and the Road Transport Department (JPJ) just announced the latest details of their 4-day traffic offence discount programme!

Now you can actually skip the queue, and pay for your traffic offences with up to 80% discount online!

 

Discount For Traffic Offences : What Was Announced Earlier

It was announced earlier that the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and the Road Transport Department (JPJ) would be offering massive discounts on traffic offences over four days at the KL Convention Centre (KLCC).

  • 80% discount for traffic summonses within Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya
  • 70% discount for traffic summonses outside Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya

That immediately led to criticism that the tiered discounts is discriminatory. A common refrain -why are people in KL and Putrajaya getting more discount than those from other states?

They also announced that these discounts would only be valid at the KLCC payment counters. That was roundly criticised as it would mean people gathering and queuing for hours – a big risk during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

PDRM + JPJ Traffic Offences : How To Get 80% Discount?

Just before the offer kicked off, PDRM and JPJ issued press releases (JPJ) making changes to the traffic offence discount programme :

Discount Now Up To 80%

PDRM and JPJ announced that they will offer up to 80% discount on traffic summonses, with a minimum of RM30.

There is no longer any reference to a 70% discount for traffic summonses outside KL and Putrajaya.

Discount Programme Runs For 4 Days

The PDRM and JPJ traffic summons discount programme will run for 4 days – from 9 until 12 December 2021.

You Don’t Have To Pay At KLCC!

PDRM will now allow you to pay for your compound at multiple venues, and even online!

  • PDRM Payment Counters @ KLCC
  • Summon Payment Counters at Police District Headquarters
  • Summon Payment Counters at Police Contingent Headquarters
  • MyBAYAR Saman online portal or app

JPJ will similarly allow you to pay for your compound at multiple venues, and even online!

Discounts Do NOT Apply To All Traffic Offences

The discounts being offered do NOT apply to all traffic offences. Here is a list of traffic offences that will not be reduced under this programme :

  • Causing accidents
  • Overtaking another vehicle dangerously
  • Driving on the emergency lane
  • Not obeying traffic lights
  • Overtaking across double lines
  • Non-compoundable offences
  • Offences involving heavy vehicles
  • Modification of vehicle exhausts
  • Cases registered at the courts
  • Arrest warrants that have not resulted in Discharge Not Amounting To Acquittal (DNAA)

PDRM + JPJ Advised Public To Pay Compounds Online!

Instead of requiring people to queue up at the KL Convention Centre, PDRM and JPJ now advise the public to pay their compounds online instead.

They also called on those who wish to pay their compounds physically, to obey COVID-19 precautions and SOP.

 

How To Pay PDRM / JPJ Traffic Offences Online?

PDRM

Instead of queuing up at the police headquarters, you should use the online MyBayar Saman portal or app :

The PDRM launched MyBayar Saman as an alternative payment option, instead of paying over-the-counter, or using private collecting agents like MyEG.

This would also save the public money as MyBayar Saman is FREE, and does not collect service charges. They can also pay their fines at their convenience, without wasting time queuing to pay.

JPJ

Instead of queuing up at JPJ offices, you should use their online mySIKAP online portal.

How To Fix WRONG HSO + PUS Status In MySejahtera!

MySejahtera WRONGLY issued Home Surveillance Orders (HSO) and Person Under Surveillance (PUS) status, causing chaos for users.

Fortunately, that has been fixed, but here was what you can do if your HSO / PUS status persists…

 

Chaos As MySejahtera WRONGLY Issued HSO + PUS Status!

Overnight, MySejahtera suddenly issued people with Home Surveillance Orders (HSO) and/or gave them Person Under Surveillance (PUS) status.

This was a BIG PROBLEM because those who received them would be BARRED from leaving their homes. And if they have a flight scheduled that day, they would be barred from flying.

Many people who received them expressed their shock online, especially when they did not travel recently.

Lokidesu, for example, said that he received a notification at 2 AM this morning that he is now a Person Under Surveillance (PUS) even though he never went out :

I’m only staying at home all the time,then suddenly today I receive a notification saying my status is now “Person Under Surveillance (PUS)”. For my history,I have not even go out anywhere within 14 days, please check into this. Timestamp screenshot: 7 Nov 2021 2am

Another MySejahtera user, Yen, wondered how she was labelled as a PUS and received a Home Surveillance Order at 4 AM in the morning, even though she had no history of travelling or close contacts.

Hi, I have no history of travelling overseas, no close contact, no positive covid, but suddenly I was labeled as a person under surveillance (PUS) which require 14 days quarantine. Please follow up and fix ASAP as this is not correct!

 

Good News : MySejahtera HSO + PUS Bug Fixed!

Fortunately, the MySejahtera team managed to get the bug fixed, which they announced at 8:49 AM.

The incorrect Home Surveillance Orders and Person Under Surveillance status were all rescinded.

Good morning everyone – we apologise for the error on our part which allowed random users’ to be given HSOs/PUS status.

We have fixed the root cause which allowed this to happen. All incorrect HSOs have been deleted, and incorrect PUS status reverted.

 

What If Your MySejahtera Still Shows Incorrect HSO / PUS?

In the event that your MySejahtera app still shows the incorrect HSO or PUS notification, here are some steps you can try :

Option 1 : Log Into MySejahtera Again

The easiest thing you can try is to log off MySejahtera, and log back in again.

  • Go to the MySejahtera main page
  • Tap on Profile
  • Tap on the Menu option on the upper right corner
  • Select Logout
  • Open MySejahtera and log back in

Option 2 : Clear MySejahtera App Cache

If you know how to clear the MySejahtera app cache, you can try that too :

  • Go to your phone Settings > Apps
  • Look for MySejahtera
  • Clear the MySejahtera app cache
  • Run MySejahtera again

Option 3 : Reinstall MySejahtera

If you don’t know how to clear the app cache, it will be simpler to just reinstall MySejahtera :

  • Delete MySejahtera from your phone (don’t worry – your data is safe)
  • Reinstall MySejahtera from App Store / Play Store
  • Open MySejahtera and log back in

Option 4 : Ask To Redo Health Assessment

The last option you can try is to ask to redo your health assessment using Helpdesk

  • Go to the MySejahtera main page
  • Tap on Helpdesk
  • Tap Start > K > A > A > B
  • Write a short message saying that you received an incorrect HSO / PUS status, and tap Next
  • Key in your email address and press Submit

You should get a notification to redo your health assessment within an hour.

New In MySejahtera : Risk Level, Vax Status + Check-Out!

MySejahtera just introduced a more prominent display of your COVID-19 risk level and vaccination status, as well as a new Check-out button!

 

New In MySejahtera : Risk Level + Vaccination Status Display

Now that a majority of Malaysians have been vaccinated – 60% of all adult citizens as of 2 September 2021 – the government believes it is time to learn to live with COVID-19.

To that end, the MySejahtera team will be pushing out a new built (version) that will make the display of your COVID-19 Risk Level and Vaccination Status more prominent.

Both are currently “hidden” in your MySejahtera profile, and the update will bring them to the forefront, to make it easier for you to display them.

 

New In MySejahtera : Check-Out Button

One design flaw of the original MySejahtera contact tracing feature is that it only logged when you check INTO a location. There was never an option to check OUT of a location.

Belatedly, the MySejahtera team will be adding a check-out button. You just need to tap Check-out whenever you leave the premise – there is no need to scan any QR code.

With this feature, you will be able to let contact tracers know exactly how long you were within a certain premise.

Without knowing exactly how long you were in a certain premise, contact tracers will not be able to determine if you are truly at risk of being a close contact of a COVID-19 infected person.

For example, if you pop into Village Grocer for 15 minutes and a COVID-19 positive person came to shop an hour later, contact tracers will not know if you are at risk if they do not know when you left the store.

This will inevitably lead to a large number of people wrongly identified as close contacts, when they were never at risk at all.

This new check-out feature will be critical in reducing the number of false close contacts who will be required to home quarantine.

 

When Will These New MySejahtera Features Be Available?

These new features will be available in MySejahtera 1.0.45, with these changes :

  • Enhancements to check-in page to display vaccination status
  • New Check-out feature
  • Minor bug fixes

It was made available in the Apple App Store for iPhone users on 2 September, but only appeared in the Google Play Store for Android users on 5 September 2021.

New MySejahtera Vaccine Appointment Feature For Seniors?

Is it true that MySejahtera has a new vaccine appointment feature for senior citizens of 60 years and above?

Find out what is this new MySejahtera feature that is going viral on social media, and what the FACTS really are!

 

New MySejahtera Vaccine Appointment Feature For Seniors?

People are posting and sharing messages about a new MySejahtera feature that lets senior citizens of 60 years and above request for COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

Here are two examples of those viral messages :

For those above 60,who still do not have an appointment for your vaccination,you can go to MySejahtera Helpdesk,and press B👆🏻

For all those who are yet to get your vaccination appointment.

FYI
For those above 60 yrs and have yet to get vaccination date, you can do the following:-
1. open mysejahtera
2. click on help desk
3. Start
4. Select option B
5. You will be given an appointment.

It’s for 60yrs n above.

 

Not A New MySejahtera Vaccine Appointment Feature For Seniors…

The viral messages are not exactly correct.

This is NOT a new MySejahtera feature lets senior citizens request for, and receive, a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

This is really a Helpdesk alternative to the JKJAV hotline for people who have already registered for their COVID-19 vaccination.

This is similar to the new Helpdesk features that allow people to check, change or cancel their vaccine appointments online, instead of through the JKJAV hotline.

Here are the facts…

Fact #1 : It Is Not A New MySejahtera App Feature

The viral messages ask us to open the MySejahtera app and tap on Helpdesk to get to the new vaccine appointment feature.

The truth is tapping on the Helpdesk option in the MySejahtera app merely opens up a web browser, and redirects you to the online MySejahtera Helpdesk website.

You don’t even need to use the MySejahtera app. You can access the MySejahtera Helpdesk website using any Internet browser via these links – English | Bahasa Melayu.

Fact #2 : It Is Just A New Help Option

The truth is – this is just a new Helpdesk option, to help people check for their COVID-19 vaccine appointments, and for the MySejahtera team identify those who didn’t get their vaccine appointments yet.

If you select B. 60 years old and above but haven’t received my appointment (Phase 2), you will be asked if you have  chronic illness or not.

Whatever option you select, you will be taught how to check for your vaccine appointment in MySejahtera :

  • Click on the COVID-19 Vaccination icon on the MySejahtera main page.
  • Choose the Vaccine for [your name] option to view your appointment details

And if you still do NOT see your vaccine appointment, then you are asked to submit your MySejahtera user ID (MySJ ID) and your MyKad or passport number.

In the next page, you will be asked to submit your mobile number and an email address for them to write back to you on what to do next.

This will allow the MySejahtera team to look into your vaccine appointment, or why your MySejahtera app does not display the vaccine appointments.

It does NOT mean you will be automatically given your COVID-19 vaccine appointments, as the viral messages claim.

Your COVID-19 vaccine appointment will be issued according to these criteria :

  • when you registered for COVID-19 vaccination
  • your age
  • if you have any co-morbidities (chronic illness)
  • your location

Nowhere in this process do you see it being mentioned that this feature allows you to request for a vaccine appointment.

Fact #3 : It Is More Convenient Than Calling Hotline

To be clear, this is a legitimate Helpdesk option to help senior citizens age 60 years and above check for their COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

It is no different than calling the JKJAV hotline at 1800-888-828, to ask why you have not received your vaccine appointment.

Now that this new Helpdesk option has been introduced, you should definitely use it instead of calling the JKJAV hotline, which is always busy and hard to get through.

Fact #4 : This Is Not A Vaccine Registration Feature

This new Helpdesk option helps to identify senior citizens who may not have received their appointments, possibly due to these reasons :

  • not aware of where to look for vaccine appointment details
  • did not even register for COVID-19 vaccination
  • MySejahtera app cache corruption

However, it is not a replacement for the COVID-19 vaccine registration process. You cannot use this “method” to ask for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment if you have not yet registered for it.

Even with the introduction of this new Helpdesk feature, you must still register yourself for COVID-19 vaccination through these five ways :

  1. The MySejahtera app – a future update will introduce a button to register for an appointment.
  2. The Vaksin COVID website.
  3. The telephone hotline : 1800-888-828
  4. Manually at health clinics, hospitals and private clinics
  5. House-to-house registration at targeted rural areas for senior citizens.

Please make sure you register for your free COVID-19 vaccine ASAP!

MySejahtera : RM10K ~ RM50K Fine Can Be Appealed!

MySejahtera logging is MANDATORY, and the fine just increased to RM 10,000 for individuals and RM 50,000 for companies!

However, the government allows you to appeal for a lower fine, so make sure you do that!

Updated @ 2021-03-13 : Added RM50K fine for companies, and other updates.

Updated @ 2021-03-12 : Added details of increased RM10K fine for individuals.

MySejahtera : Mandatory, Fine Now RM10K ~ RM50K!

MySejahtera logging has been mandatory since 10 February 2021, but most people still seem unaware of this.

You can still get fined if you registered with an alternate app like Selangkah, but not MySejahtera.

On 3 March 2021, the non-compliance fine was increased, from 11 March 2021 onwards to :

The massively increased fines will definitely be a problem for many people who don’t even earn that much in 4 months!

Look at this picture of a compound that a netizen received on the very first day the fine was increased!

Apparently, this person was fined for not registering with MySejahtera, even though he registered with a different app or the manual log book.

 

MySejahtera Fine Can Be Appealed

Malaysia Senior Minister of Defence Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob stated that the maximum fine of RM10,000 for individuals is only for “repeat and serious offenders”.

According to the Inspector General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador, the police officers do not have the power to reduce the fine. It is merely their duty to issue the compound.

However, those who receive the compound can appeal for a reduction in the fine at the nearest District Health Office.

So if you are caught not scanning the QR code using your MySejahtera app :

  • DO NOT ARGUE with the police officer.
  • Accept the compound from the police officer.
  • Head to the nearest District Health Office to appeal the fine.

Potential mitigating factors could include your economic status, a first-time offence, not owning a smartphone, poor or no Internet connectivity in that area.

DAP Selangor is also offering legal assistance, so you can give them a try too, if your appeal fails.

MySejahtera : Mandatory Since Feb 2021, Fine Originally RM1K

COVID-19 contact tracing requires timely and accurate logging of everyone’s movements, which has been accomplished by many apps and manual logbooks in Malaysia.

However, to streamline and speed up the contact tracing process, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) announced on 9 February 2021 that MySejahtera logging is now mandatory.

From Wednesday, 10 February 2021 onwards, everyone in Malaysia must log their movements in public areas using the MySejahtera app.

You can use other contact tracing apps as well, but only in addition to MySejahtera, which again is MANDATORY.

The use of manual logbooks is no longer allowed, except in rural areas where Internet connectivity is poor or not available.

However, the government did not detail how people who do not own a smartphone are supposed to log their visits.

The fine was originally set at RM 1,000 per person, per offence for those who failed to log their movements using MySejahtera.

The original RM 1,000 fine for not logging your movement in public places is not new. Malaysian netizens have shared videos and photos of enforcement checks for months now.

 

MySejahtera : What Is It?

MySejahtera is a mobile app developed by the Malaysian government. It serves as a contact tracing tool, as well as a way to disseminate verified information on COVID-19 in Malaysia.

Its users can log their movements by quickly and simply scanning a QR code at public places. This is a safer option to signing a logbook, because you won’t need to touch the logbook or use a shared pen.

Using MySejahtera also allows the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) to easier and faster conduct contact tracing.

Please note that EVERY PERSON – including children and domestic helpers – must be registered.

Unfortunately, the government has not stated what people should do, if they do not have a smartphone.

How To Check If MySejahtera Vaccine Registration Successful!

After registering for your COVID-19 vaccine in MySejahtera, please CHECK to make sure the registration was successful!

 

How To Check If MySejahtera Vaccine Registration Successful!

After registering for COVID-19 vaccination in MySejahtera, don’t leave just yet!

Please follow these steps to CHECK if your registration was successful!

  1. Go back to the MySejahtera main screen, and tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option again.

  1. In this screen, tap on the first option – Vaccine for [your name here] again.

  1. If you see this screen, then you have successfully registered for the COVID-19 vaccination program.

 

Check, But No Need To Register Again For Vaccination

On 3 March 2021, National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said that “there is no need to resubmit” the application.

He clarified this on 4 March 2021, stating that MySejahtera is currently updating its vaccination registration record.

So there is NO NEED to register for vaccination again, even if you do not see the vaccination status page above.

As long as you submitted your registration and saw this THANK YOU pop-up, you have successfully registered for the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

 

Earlier Reasons To Check + Confirm Your Registration

On 3 March 2021, MySejahtera started displaying a vaccination status page, but it only appeared for some people.

For everyone else, clicking on the Vaccine for [Your Name] link just leads them back to the registration process, instead of the status page.

They would have to go through the entire vaccination registration process again, before the status page would appear.

After they re-register for vaccination on MySejahtera, the Vaccine for [Your Name] link will then correctly show the vaccination status page.

Without accessing this status page, how will people find out when their first and second dose appointments will be?

There was also concern when users noticed that MySejahtera was showing a new registration date, instead of the original registration date.

Fact Check : Fat Bidin Claims On MySejahtera Snooping!

Wan Azlee, who goes by Fat Bidin, claims that MySejahtera is mining private information from our phones.

Find out what he discovered, and what the FACTS really are!

Updated @ 2020-12-03 : Added MySejahtera version history for more context.

Updated @ 2020-12-01 : Added more information, including how to disable permissions in Android and iOS for the paranoid.

Originally posted @ 2020-11-30

 

Fat Bidin : MySejahtera Is Mining Information From Our Phones!

In Episode 41 of Fat Bidin Knows Everything, Wan Azlee claimed (between mouthfuls of oats) that MySejahtera is mining a wealth of private information from our phones.

His evidence? A report by the Exodus Privacy website, stating that MySejahtera has 6 trackers and 24 permissions.

He went through the 24 permissions and made these concerning observations about MySejahtera :

  • it can take control of your phone and pair it with your Bluetooth devices
  • directly call phone numbers
  • find accounts on your phone
  • read your contacts in your phone
  • read the contents of your SD card
  • modify or delete the contents of your SD card
  • prevent your phone from sleeping
  • modify your contacts

Phwoarrrr…. shocking, isn’t it? Wan Azlee / Fat Bidin then asks the Malaysia Ministry of Health to be transparent and tell us what’s going on.

Well, let’s take a closer look at his claims…

 

Fat Bidin On MySejahtera Is Mining Our Information : A Fact Check

Wan Azlee is very articulate, but Fat Bidin honestly doesn’t quite know everything… and here’s why.

Fact #1 : That MySejahtera Version Was From April 2020

Fat Bidin posted his video on 24 November 2020, and we noticed that he was checking an old version of MySejahtera – version 1.0.10, that was posted way back in April 2020.

For the record, there has been FOURTEEN UPDATES since that version :

  • 1.0.11 : 23 April 2020
  • 1.0.12 : 28 April 2020
  • 1.0.13 : 3 May 2020
  • 1.0.15 : 4 May 2020
  • 1.0.16 : 13 May 2020
  • 1.0.17 : 23 May 2020
  • 1.0.18 : 30 May 2020
  • 1.0.19 : 3 June 2020
  • 1.0.20 : 28 June 2020
  • 1.0.21 : 30 June 2020
  • 1.0.22 : 21 July 2020
  • 1.0.23 : 29 July 2020
  • 1.0.24 : 11 August 2020
  • 1.0.25 : 5 November 2020

The latest version of MySejahtera – version 1.0.25 –  was released on 5 November 2020 – 19 days before Wan Azlee posted his video.

Why on Earth would he focus on a 6 month-old version of the app, when there is a much newer version?

Fact #2 : Exodus Posted Their Latest MySejahtera Report On 20 November 2020

Exodus posted their latest report on the latest version of MySejahtera (version 1.0.25) on 20 November 2020 at 10:47 am (as you can see in this screenshot).

That was 4 days before Wan Azlee posted his video, so why didn’t he use this new report instead?

Fact #3 : MySejahtera Has 1 Tracker + 14 Permissions According To Exodus

According to the November 20 Exodus report, MySejahtera has 1 tracker – Google Firebase Analytics, and 14 permissions, of which the highlighted ones were :

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION : access approximate location (network-based)
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION : access precise location (GPS and network-based)
  • CALL_PHONE : directly call phone numbers
  • CAMERA : take pictures and videos
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE : read the contents of your SD card
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE : modify or delete the contents of your SD card

We immediately noticed that several controversial permissions are no longer in it :

  • GET_ACCOUNTS : find accounts on the device
  • READ_CONTACTS : read your contacts
  • WRITE_CONTACTS : modify your contacts

So if you are worried that MySejahtera is reading your contacts or modifying them, just UPDATE it to the latest version 1.0.25!

Fact #4 : Actual Permissions Are Fewer

When we checked MySejahtera 1.0.25 as installed in our phone, we found that it actually asked for and used only 11 permissions, instead of 14 as reported by Exodus.

The report also offered a bit more context about those permissions. For instance, location data is only made available when you are actively using the app.

That’s because the location data is used by MySejahtera for its Hotspot Tracker and Locate Health Screening Facility features.

In your phone, you can tap on them for more information on what they allow the app to do.

Fact #5 : Apps Need To Read, Modify + Delete Their Own Data

The permission to read, modify and delete content on our phone may seem ridiculous, but it is a necessity for most apps.

Unless the apps is merely a container for a website or web service, it needs to store data, and modify or delete it when necessary.

Fact #6 : Access To External / SD Card Is Necessary

Most developers will also ask for the permission to read, modify and delete content to the (micro) SD card, because of Adoptable Storage.

Adoptable Storage is a feature that lets smartphones use external storage (like a microSD card) as if it is part of their internal storage.

When a microSD card is used this way, apps like MySejahtera can be installed on it. Therefore, it would require permission to read, modify and delete its own data on the external storage card.

Fact #7 : Android Restricts Data Snooping

Apps that have access to read / modify / write external storage are allowed to access files from other apps. However, this is limited to only these three media collections :

  • MediaStore.Images
  • MediaStore.Video
  • MediaStore.Audio

MySejahtera, or any other app with similar permissions, cannot read / modify / delete data outside of those three media storage locations.

Fact #8 : MySejahtera Has A Privacy Policy

Like all other Android and iOS apps, MySejahtera has a privacy policy, where it is stated clearly that

MySejahtera is owned and operated by the Government of Malaysia. It is administrated by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and assisted by the National Security Council (NSC) and the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU). The Government assures that the collection of your personal information is align with Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (Act 709).

The app will not record user’s Personal Data except with the permission and voluntarily provided by the user. Information collected are used for monitoring and enforcement purposes by Government authorities in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. This information is not shared with other organizations for other purposes unless specifically stated.

Fact #9 : You Are Protected By PDPA 2010 (Act 709)

We are all protected by the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (Act 709).

Anyone who is caught sharing our personal data without permission is be liable to a fine not exceeding three hundred thousand ringgit or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to both.

Fact #10 : You Can Disable Permissions

You can view and disable any permission that worries you :

Android

  1. Go to Settings > Apps >  MySejahtera > Permissions.
  2. Tap on the permission you don’t want, and select Deny.

Apple iOS

  1. Go to Settings > MySejahtera.
  2. Disable the permissions you don’t want.

But note that doing this will likely break some features in MySejahtera.

Fact #11 : Many Other Apps Are Worse For Your Privacy

When it comes to privacy, we have bigger fishes to fry. Take a look at how many trackers and permissions these four popular apps require.

They make MySejahtera look absolutely privacy-conscious!

Latest MySejahtera SOP For Petrol Stations : To Scan Or Not?

Senior Minister for Security Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaacob just issued an updated MySejahtera SOP for petrol stations.

Please make sure you understand the new SOP, and share it out with your family and friends!

 

Scan MySejahtera At Petrol Stations, Or Get Fined RM1K?

While CPRC (Crisis Preparedness and Respose Centre) from the Ministry of Health has said that it is not necessary to scan MySejahtera at petrol stations, the police insist that it is mandatory.

In fact, Bukit Aman CID Deputy Director DCP Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid confirmed that you must register MySejahtera at the petrol station, even if you do not enter the convenience store!

Malaysians were thoroughly confused by two competing narratives, and a slew of news reports that flip-flopped on the issue.

 

Latest MySejahtera SOP For Petrol Stations : To Scan Or Not?

At around 6 PM on 10 November 2020, Senior Minister for Security Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri, issued an updated SOP on the use of MySejahtera in petrol stations in this press conference.

Here is a summary of the updated MySejahtera SOP for petrol stations :

MUST Scan MySejahtera / Register Manually

  • Making payments or purchases inside the petrol station’s convenience store.
  • Using the ATM machine inside the petrol station’s convenience store.
  • Using the petrol station’s toilet or surau.
  • Sending your car to the petrol station’s workshop.
  • Sending your car for a manual car wash.

DO NOT Need To Scan MySejahtera / Register Manually

  • Self-serving at the pump, and paying using their credit or debit cards or online app.
  • Paying the cashier through the pigeonhole.
  • Self-inflating your own tyres.
  • Using the auto car wash, unless you are paying inside the petrol station’s convenience store.
Scan MySejahtera or
Register Manually?
Making payments inside the petrol station store YES
Making purchases from the convenience store YES
Using the toilet or surau YES
Sending car to petrol station’s workshop YES
Sending car for manual car wash YES
Self-serving at pump, and
paying with credit / debit card / mobile app
NO
Paying cashier through pigeonhole NO
Inflating tyres with air NO
Driving car through auto car wash NO

 

MySejahtera : Why Use It At Petrol Stations?

MySejahtera is a mobile app developed by the Malaysian government. It serves as a contact tracing tool, as well as a way to disseminate verified information on COVID-19 in Malaysia.

Its users can log their movements by quickly and simply scanning a QR code at public places. This is a safer option to signing a logbook, because you won’t need to touch the logbook or use a shared pen.

Even though petrol pumps in Malaysia are generally self-served, petrol stations are high traffic public areas with pump attendants and employees, as well as other customers, who may be infected.

Registering your visit with MySejahtera at the petrol station will allow the authorities to quickly and accurately perform contact tracing if any infected person was at the petrol station.

Scan MySejahtera At Petrol Station, Or Get Fined RM1K?

CPRC says it’s not mandatory, but PDRM says you can be fined RM1,000 for failing to register MySejahtera at the petrol station!

So which is it? After flip-flopping, they finally clarified their stance… hopefully, for the LAST TIME!

 

Register MySejahtera At Petrol Station, Or Get Fined RM1K?

According to PDRM, you must register MySejahtera at the petrol station, even if you do not enter the convenience store! Otherwise, you could be subject to a RM1,000 fine!

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department deputy director DCP Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid confirmed this, saying “If the people do not register or scan, how will the police trace them if there are Covid-19 cases in the area?

As petrol stations are high-traffic public spaces, it is mandatory to register your visit using MySejahtera, as well as wear a face mask have your temperature scanned, and use a hand sanitiser.

However, it appears that petrol station operators may not be aware of this requirement either, as they do not put up MySejahtera QR codes at their pumps for motorists to register their visits…

 

But Didn’t CPRC Say MySejahtera Not Necessary At Petrol Station?

This email shows the CPRC (Crisis Preparedness and Respose Centre) team saying that it is NOT necessary to register your visit using MySejahtera if you are merely refuelling at the pump or making payments.

Sadly, it appears that CPRC and PDRM are not on the same page. CPRC says it’s not necessary, but PDRM insists it is mandatory.

 

Latest MySejahtera SOP For Petrol Stations : To Scan Or Not?

On 10 November 2020, Malaysia’s Senior Minister for Security Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri, issued an updated SOP on the use of MySejahtera in petrol stations in this press conference.

MySejahtera / Logbook : Register Or Get Fined RM1,000!

With the number of COVID-19 cases rising in Malaysia, here’s a timely reminder – register yourself at all public places using MySejahtera or the logbook, or get fined RM1,000!

 

MySejahtera / Logbook : Register Or Get Fined RM1,000!

Malaysia has so far weathered the COVID-19 pandemic with relatively few cases, thanks to a relative strict Movement Control Order, and a mandatory requirement to wear a face mask in public from 1 August 2020 onwards.

But with the surging number of new cases, the Malaysian government appears to be ramping up enforcement checks on businesses.

Malaysian netizens have shared videos and photos of recent enforcement checks, where those who did not register themselves either using the MySejahtera app or a logbook were fined RM1,000 per person!

 

MySejahtera : What Is It?

MySejahtera is a mobile app developed by the Malaysian government. It serves as a contact tracing tool, as well as a way to disseminate verified information on COVID-19 in Malaysia.

Its users can log their movements by quickly and simply scanning a QR code at public places. This is a safer option to signing a logbook, because you won’t need to touch the logbook or use a shared pen.

 

MySejahtera / Logbook : What’s The SOP?

On 4 October 2020, the Malaysia Ministry of Health issued another reminder on the mandatory registration SOP using MySejahtera or a logbook.

Please note that EVERY PERSON – including children and domestic helpers – must be registered. If they do not have a smartphone, they must register using the logbook.

Also, if you are registering yourself using the physical logbook, please write in your FULL NAME and telephone number. You can be fined if you write in only your first name.

Premise Owner

  • Make sure visitors undergo temperature screening and scan the QR code using MySejahtera
  • In the event you do not have a QR code, make sure visitors record their particulars in a logbook
  • Make sure visitors with symptoms or high risk status are not allowed into your premise

Members Of The Public

  • Make sure you perform temperature screening and scan the QR code using the MySejahtera app, or record your details in the logbook, every time you enter a premise.
  • Perform a risk analysis from time to time.

Those who fail to register themselves at public premises risk being fined RM1,000 per person, per offence.

The Malaysia Ministry of Health has proposed that this fine be increased to RM10,000. The proposal was submitted to the Malaysian Parliament in August 2020, but has yet to be approved.

Will TikTok Be Banned In Pakistan After Student’s Death?

Will TikTok be banned by Pakistan after the death of a student today, like how PUBG was suspended recently?

 

Student’s Tragic Death While Shooting TikTok Video

Earlier today, 10 July 2020, a 14 year-old student in Pakistan accidentally shot himself while shooting a TikTok video, in the Bagan neighbourhood of Abbottabad, Pakistan.

The 14 year-old student, identified as Abdul Samad, was killed after he accidentally fired the gun while filming himself on TikTok.

 

Will TikTok Be Banned In Pakistan After Student Death?

This new tragedy follows a string of unfortunate deaths in Pakistan, while teenagers and children attempt to make popular TikTok videos :

  • June 2020 : 17 year-old boy accidentally pulled the trigger of his father’s gun while filming himself holding the gun to his temple in a TikTok video.
  • April 2020 : 22 year-old man died after being hit by a train, while performing a TikTok challenge at the Jumma Goth railway station.
  • March 2020 : a policeman was accidentally shot and killed while trying to snatch his gun back from a female friend who took his gun to film her TikTok video
  • December 2019 : 16 year-old boy accidentally shot himself while recording a TikTok video.

Considering PUBG was recently suspended after a student committed suicide, it seems likely that Pakistan may be forced to order a suspension of TikTok after this student’s death.

Recommended : India Bans 59 Chinese Apps, Including TikTok and WeChat!

Should TikTok be held responsible for these deaths? Arguably, they have to consider if it is really smart to allow videos of people showing off and shooting guns on a short video platform that many children and teenagers use unsupervised.

There is no age check so anyone can watch those videos, irrespective of how young they are. Heck, you don’t even need an account to watch!

 

TikTok Controversies Keep Piling Up!

While TikTok is very popular with children and teenagers, it keeps getting wracked by controversies, some of its own doing.

It was caught spying on what we type in other apps, not once but TWICE. Coupled with Chinese belligerence in the Himalayas, that led to India banning TikTok together with 58 other Chinese apps.

Its penchant for promoting TikTok challenges led to deaths and injuries from the Skull Breaker / Tripping Jump Challenge.

More recently, it powered the George Floyd Challenge, which was not only extremely racist but also dangerous for children to imitate.

TikTok Reverse-Engineered : A Peek At How It Works!

TikTok is getting exposed as a really bad piece of malware, and it doesn’t help when people like bangarlol claim to have reverse-engineered it, giving us a peek at how it all works!

 

TikTok : Controversies After Controversies

TikTok is a Chinese social networking service built around short video clips. Developed and owned by ByteDance which is based in Beijing, it is very popular amongst young people and even children.

This has led to numerous controversies as TikTok proved slow or reluctant to remove dangerous or racist videos :

TikTok has also been dogged by accusations of snooping on users, but that got serious recently, when they were caught twice spying on what we typed, followed by a ban by the Indian government.

He warned that TikTok is a “data collection service” that is “essentially malware that is targeting children“, collecting everything they can get their hands on, even data unnecessary for the features they offer.

  • other apps that you installed, even those you deleted!
  • everything on your network, including network configuration and devices!
  • your GPS location – roughly once every 30 seconds!

This data collection is so critical that the TikTok app is disabled if you block communications to their data analytics host at the DNS level.

What You Don’t Know Can’t Hurt You?

The TikTok app itself is specially designed to obfuscate (make it difficult to figure out) what they are really doing.

The First Taste Of Fame…

According to bangorlol, the TikTok service will entice you by letting your first post get more likes, giving you a taste of going viral.

This will hopefully hook you into using their app, which would lead to more users as your friends will want to join in too.

Remote Payload?

bangorlol found code that allows for the downloading of a remote file, unzipping it and then executing the binary – something no legitimate app will ever do.

Can’t Be Bothered With SSL But Encrypt The Data They Collect?

Apparently, TikTok has not been using SSL (HTTPS) for a long time, leaking user email addresses through their HTTP REST API, as well as the real names and birthdays of their users.

Yet they took the effort to encrypt all of the data they collect from their users, even changing the encryption keys with every update, so you don’t know what they’re collecting.

 

TikTok Reverse-Engineered : The Full bangorlol Post

For those who want to read bangorlol’s full post, here it is :

I reverse-engineered the app, and feel confident in stating that I have a very strong understanding for how the app operates (or at least operated as of a few months ago).

TikTok is a data collection service that is thinly-veiled as a social network. If there is an API to get information on you, your contacts, or your device… well, they’re using it.

  • Phone hardware (cpu type, number of course, hardware ids, screen dimensions, dpi, memory usage, disk space, etc)
  • Other apps you have installed (I’ve even seen some I’ve deleted show up in their analytics payload – maybe using as cached value?)
  • Everything network-related (ip, local ip, router mac, your mac, wifi access point name)
  • Whether or not you’re rooted/jailbroken
  • Some variants of the app had GPS pinging enabled at the time, roughly once every 30 seconds – this is enabled by default if you ever location-tag a post IIRC
  • They set up a local proxy server on your device for “transcoding media”, but that can be abused very easily as it has zero authentication

The scariest part of all of this is that much of the logging they’re doing is remotely configurable, and unless you reverse every single one of their native libraries (have fun reading all of that assembly, assuming you can get past their customized fork of OLLVM!!!) and manually inspect every single obfuscated function. They have several different protections in place to prevent you from reversing or debugging the app as well. App behavior changes slightly if they know you’re trying to figure out what they’re doing. There’s also a few snippets of code on the Android version that allows for the downloading of a remote zip file, unzipping it, and executing said binary. There is zero reason a mobile app would need this functionality legitimately.

On top of all of the above, they weren’t even using HTTPS for the longest time. They leaked users’ email addresses in their HTTP REST API, as well as their secondary emails used for password resets. Don’t forget about users’ real names and birthdays, too. It was allllll publicly viewable a few months ago if you MITM’d the application.

They provide users with a taste of “virality” to entice them to stay on the platform. Your first TikTok post will likely garner quite a bit of likes, regardless of how good it is.. assuming you get past the initial moderation queue if thats still a thing. Most users end up chasing the dragon. Oh, there’s also a ton of creepy old men who have direct access to children on the app, and I’ve personally seen (and reported) some really suspect stuff. 40-50 year old men getting 8-10 year old girls to do “duets” with them with sexually suggestive songs. Those videos are posted publicly. TikTok has direct messaging functionality.

Here’s the thing though.. they don’t want you to know how much information they’re collecting on you, and the security implications of all of that data in one place, en masse, are fucking huge. They encrypt all of the analytics requests with an algorithm that changes with every update (at the very least the keys change) just so you can’t see what they’re doing. They also made it so you cannot use the app at all if you block communication to their analytics host off at the DNS-level.

For what it’s worth I’ve reversed the Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter apps. They don’t collect anywhere near the same amount of data that TikTok does, and they sure as hell aren’t outright trying to hide exactly whats being sent like TikTok is. It’s like comparing a cup of water to the ocean – they just don’t compare.

tl;dr; I’m a nerd who figures out how apps work for a job. Calling it an advertising platform is an understatement. TikTok is essentially malware that is targeting children. Don’t use TikTok. Don’t let your friends and family use it.

India Bans 59 Chinese Apps, Including TikTok and WeChat!

After TikTok was exposed for spying on what we type, it got banned by India together with 58 other Chinese apps, for cybersecurity reasons.

Here is everything you need to know about this new ban, including the full list of banned apps!

 

India Bans 59 Chinese Apps, Including TikTok and WeChat!

Just two days ago, we showed how TikTok was caught spying on what we type in other apps, not once but TWICE.

The very next day, TikTok joined WeChat as part of a ban by India on 59 Chinese apps identified as malicious or posing data and privacy risks to their users.

The Ministry of Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India.

The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures.

Based on input from the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre, the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) and representatives from both inside and outside the Indian Parliament, the Indian government announced the ban of 59 Chinese apps.

No doubt, the recent high altitude fatal brawl between Chinese and Indian troops in the Himalayas played some part in this decision.

India Bans 59 Chinese Apps : The Implications

This ban by India means that Apple App Store, Google Play Store and even the HUAWEI AppGallery must stop providing access to those 59 banned apps in India.

If you already have them installed, then they will still work. You just cannot install them from official app stores within India.

If you still wish to download and install them, Android users can download and install their APK (Android Application Package) installation files from their official websites and APK repositories.

Apple iOS users, as usual, are out of luck, unless they are using jailbroken devices.

GrabPay Scam : Don’t Link Your Debit Card / Bank Account!

Beware of a new GrabPay scam that can quickly suck your debit cards and bank account dry!

Don’t link your debit card or bank account with GrabPay, and SHARE this warning with your family and friends!

 

GrabPay Scam Alert : Don’t Link Your Bank Account!

On 16 May 2020, Muhammad Syahir recounted how he was cheated of almost RM 900 through a GrayPay scam. Here is a brief summary of what happened :

  • The scammer created a new Instagram account, pretending to be the victim’s friend.
  • He messaged the victim asking for his phone number.
  • After receiving the victim’s phone number, he messaged him through Instagram to tell him about the GrabPay 8th Anniversary Campaign.
  • The victim was asked to look out for a GrabPay code, which would reveal what he won.

  • After sending the GrabPay code (not a TAC code) to the scammer, the victim saw RM 425 being debited into his GrabPay account. Unbeknownst to him, that money was from his own bank account!
  • A few minutes later, the victim received a notification that the RM 425 was paid to UNIPIN (M) SDN. BHD.
  • The scammer messaged him again on Instagram, asking for a second code that was sent to the victim.
  • The victim then received another notification from GrabPay stating that another RM 425 was paid to UNIPIN (M) SDN. BHD.
  • After that, the scammer blocked the victim on Instagram. That was when the victim got suspicious.
  • When the victim checked his bank account, he discovered that he lost RM 896.30 to the scammer.
  • In total, the scammer made 5 withdrawals through GrabPay – four from his debit card, and one from his bank account.

Another person – Patrick Saw – also fell for the same GrabPay scam, losing RM 405.

 

GrabPay Scam Alert : GrabPay Flaws?

Muhammad Syahir highlighted what he felt were major flaws with GrabPay :

  1. GrabPay allows credit / debit card transactions without CVV verification or OTP from the bank.
  2. GrabPay will not notify you about any first-time login attempt of a different gadget in a different location.
  3. GrabPay does not require users to set-up a secured PIN for any big transactions – e.g. more than RM100.
  4. If your bank account is linked to your GrabPay e-wallet, there won’t be any SMS notification for bank transfers to your e-wallet.

According to his experience, the scammer only needed to use the Grab Activation Code to withdraw money from all bank accounts / debit cards linked to your GrabPay app.

 

GrabPay Scam Alert : How To Avoid It?

To avoid falling prey to such a scam, here is what you should do :

  • NEVER accept a friendship request from a new social media account, until you have verified with your friend (through a phone call or face-to-face) that he/she created that new account.
  • NEVER send any code you receive to anyone. Even if it is a friend, why does he/she need the code that was sent to YOU?
  • Businesses will never give away free money for anniversaries. Don’t fall for such an old trick!
  • NEVER link your debit card or bank account to an e-wallet. Only link a credit card, because they are insured and protected against fraud. If you get scammed, you can call the bank to ask for a refund.

 

GrabPay Scam Alert : Original Post + Police Report

Here was what Muhammad Syahir posted earlier, together with his police report :

SCAM ALERT VIA GRAB PAY!
It happened to me last night and I have lost almost RM1K in a few minutes via Grab Pay.

The incident happened when one of my close friends re-created a new Instagram account and requested to follow me. He messaged me and asked for my phone number via Instagram message. Without any doubt, I gave him my phone number, knowing that he probably has lost my phone number.

He posted a few photos to his newly-created Instagram account so it does not look like a phishing account.

After that, he sent another message to me about GrabPay 8th year special campaign. He was telling me that I will send a message with a code to your phone and please let me know the code and I will see what you have won.

Grab Activation Code was sent to my phone number. It was an activation code not TAC code. I gave the activation code to him without any doubt because I know that he is my friend. Also, I was thinking of this is just an activation code, it has nothing to do with my bank accounts.

The tricks started here. I saw RM425 was debited to my GrabPay account and I did not know that it was from my bank account which was linked to the GrabPay account. After a few minutes, I received a new notification from the GrabPay that RM425 was paid to UNIPIN (M) SDN BHD.

The scammer then messaged me again on Instagram. Another activation code was sent to your phone, please let me know the code. Then, I have received another notification from GrabPay that another RM425 was paid to UNIPIN (M) SDN BHD.

When I was about to reply him a message, he blocked me up. That was the time that I know something fishy has happened. When I checked my Maybank2u, I have lost a total amount of RM896.30 from my bank account. The scammer has cleared all the money in my bank account and left RM60 balance to my GrabPay.

The scammer did a total of 5 transactions as you can see from my GrabPay activity picture below. 4 transactions were made directly via debit card which is linked to my GrabPay account and 1 transaction was made via Maybank2u. The scammer even managed to access my Maybank2u account from the GrabPay account.

It happened to me in a blink of an eye where you were blinded by this scammer who cat fished your close friend to do this scam.

On top of that, let me highlight the flaws of the GrabPay app:

1) Grab allows credit/debit card transaction without the bank’s authorization OTP and also the CVV verification.
2) Grab does not notify the user via email for any first-time login attempts of different gadgets in different location.
3) Upon registering this app for the past few years, Grab did not put a clause for the users to mandatorily set up their secured pin for any big transactions that are more than RM100.
4) Your bank account that is linked to your GrabPay will not notify you via sms for any debit transaction from the bank to the GrabPay.

*The scammer just need the Grab Activation Code and he can take all the money from your linked bank accounts on the Grab app. Such a flaw app!

Please be aware of this scam and help me to share this news. I have also tag a person who has faced the same case last week. You may also check on his Facebook profile. Patrick Saw has lost RM405 from the scammer who has approached him the same way as mine.
