Mixed Views on Friend Finder

25 02 2009

A new service provided by two mobile telecommunications companies to reveal the location of cellphone holders has sparked protests that it could be abused to invade one’s privacy.

Friend Finder is a service provided by two telecommunications companies in Malaysia and to date, the service has recruited 2.4 million users and still counting. While there are those who laud the benefits of the service which, among others, allows people to monitor and even track down the whereabouts of their loved ones, some feel the security measures put in by the companies are lax.

MCA Public Service and Complaints Department head Datuk Michael Chong thinks the service indirectly exposes people to the risk of having their privacy intruded.
