There has been an uproar on social media over the past few days over MySejahtera.

It all started when some parties claimed that the user data of the MySejahtera application had been ‘sold’ to a private company.

It is alleged that each user data such as address, identity card number taken from the ‘database’ of the application are sold for around RM900 to RM7,000.

It raises concerns among the public as they are required to register and run the application in their mobile phones ever since the Covid-19 pandemic started.

In response, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin issued a media statement where he rebutted the allegations.

He explained that the data and personal information of MySejahtera users are fully owned by the Malaysian government with the Ministry of Health (KKM) as the main owner.

MOH would like to clarify that the government has never sold the MySejahtera application to any private company. In addition, the government has never made any payment to KPISOFT (M) Sdn. Bhd. who has developed the MySejahtera application.

He added that the confidentiality of user data in the application is guaranteed and MOH will also ensure that this aspect is not compromised by any party.
