INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Chief Executive of the Indonesian Consumers Foundation (YLKI) Tulus Abadi asked the government to ensure that personal data of mobile consumers is not misused regarding the plan of re-registration of prepaid card users on October 31, 2017.

"The government must ensure that the personal data of the consumers are not misused for commercial or non-commercial use without the consent of consumers," Tulus said in a short message in Jakarta on Thursday (12/10/2017)

Sincere said re-registration must go through a process of communication and socialization that really get to the consumer. Do not get access to the phone number closed because consumers do not know about the policy.

According to Tulus, the re-registration will not effectively control the number of cell phone numbers or anticipate misuse, for example, for criminal acts.

The reason, consumers are still given access to have a very mobile number because it allows to have three numbers from each mobile operator.

"That is, consumers can have 18 cellular numbers out of a total of six existing mobile operators in Indonesia," he said.

Tulus said the number of cellular numbers in Indonesia currently reaches more than 350 million. This is due to aspects of promotion and tariff war between mobile operators. During this time, consumers are stuck with promotions and tariff war that Sincere value is very misleading.

Therefore, the government should anticipate the upstream side first by disciplining tariff war and promotion that mislead consumers.

"Not only do the controlling and controlling by way of data collection," he said.
