Offer other options than the PeduliLindei app: House Speaker
Regardless of the new system or tool that is later to be used, the government must ensure that the tool that contains citizens’ personal data is leak-proof
Jakarta (ANTARA) – House Speaker Puan Maharani highlighted the importance of the government providing the public with options other than PeduliLindeli’s proposal.
“Therefore, it is important that the government offers other options besides the PeduliLindeli motion to guarantee the rights of citizens,” said the spokesman for the House of Representatives in Jakarta on Monday.
Maharani praised the government’s plan not to make PeduliLindeli the only gatekeeping application for access to public transportation or rooms.
Other protocols for citizens, such as the submission of vaccination certificates and COVID-19 test results, have to be implemented at the earliest as they are important, she stressed.
“Every citizen who owns a sophisticated or less sophisticated smartphone or even does not have a ‘smartphone’ must have equal rights of access to public spaces and transport,” she affirmed.
Maharani called for all options offered by the government, apart from the PeduliLinden application, which guarantees the protection of citizens’ personal data, to be given top priority.
This was because all mechanisms must use the single identity number as the primary data, she noted.
“Whatever the new system or tool that will be used later, the government must ensure that the tool with citizens’ personal data is leak-proof,” Maharani said.
The speaker in the house needs this guarantee so that no one is harmed by the leakage of their personal data.
Maharani believed ensuring the protection of personal data was important as the government engaged the private sector to integrate the PeduliLindeli application system with other private application systems.
“The cooperation with the private sector in the form of system integrations must have clear rules so that the personal data of citizens are adequately protected and not fall to irresponsible parties such as illegal online loans, etc.,” she emphasized.
Maharani reminded all parties such as the government and the private sector to pay special attention to the protection of citizens’ personal data while the House of Representatives and the government discussed the Personal Data Protection Act.
The spokesman for the House of Representatives urged the government and the private sector to educate the public about the protection of personal data. This action needs to be taken so that people have a good understanding of the necessary steps to take in the event that their personal information is leaked or misused.
