PUTRAJAYA: The use of the MySejahtera app to record personal details is compulsory in areas with Internet connectivity.
Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the decision was made by the National Security Council special meeting after it was discovered that certain customers did not register their name and contact number correctly when doing manual registration.
"This has made contact tracing for Covid-19 positive cases difficult.
"This directive is of immediate effect," he said during his media briefing on Tuesday (Feb 9).
Ismail Sabri said exemptions would be given to those in areas without Internet access, especially in villages and rural areas.
