The app is solely owned by MCMC on behalf of the government and it assured that it was committed to protecting users’ personal data. — Apple

UPDATE: The National Security Council (NSC) tweeted it is not assessing or validating MCMC’s Gerak Malaysia app, as it is working with the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (Mosti) on combining two apps released earlier – My Sejahtera and My Trace.

That’s a beta app that tracks location data. Currently not approved by @MKNJPM because of the location data tracking. We are discussing what features can be integrated in MySejahtera and MyTrace.
