Sugarbook blocked in Malaysia


PETALING JAYA: Sugar daddy dating platform Sugarbook has been blocked in Malaysia.

A check found that the app could not be accessed.

It is understood that the app violates Section 233 of the Multimedia and Communications Act 1998 for improper use of network facilities or network service.

Earlier, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) said it would monitor and investigate the Sugarbook app, according to Bernama.

MCMC said it would take action against users and platform owners should there be any violation of the law.

It added that the police would also take action if there are elements of prostitution involved.

Parents and guardians are also advised to monitor their children’s Internet activities as well as observe their lifestyle changes that may arouse suspicion.

In a statement on Monday (Feb 15), the MCMC also advised Internet users to exercise caution in providing their personal information when using social media and online applications, especially dating platforms.
