INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Communication and Informatics Minister Rudiantara said more than 40 million cellular users in Indonesia have already registered their prepaid card with the resident registration number (NIK) and family card (KK).

He is optimistic that the re-registration related socialization will reach all regions.

"So (awaited) until February 2018. This alone has 40 million more (who register), look at the site Kominfo movements in number," said Rudiantara while following Siberkreasi Siberkreasi literacy campaign in Setiabudi area, Central Jakarta, Sunday (5/11/2017 )

A four-month allocation for the registration process is required given the high number of prepaid card usage in Indonesia.

"We are dealing with an enormous universe, the biggest verification (previously) for BPJS, that 180 million (people) .This is 300 million to register," Rudiantara said.

He asked the public not to worry about the security of consumer data. The reason, there is no Ministerial Regulation No. 20 of 2016 on Personal Data Protection issued late last year.

"Security of data in the operator, if there are violations (data leakage), there are administrative sanctions, can be revoked permission," he said.

Card owners are encouraged to register themselves independently by sending a message to the operator. Registration can also be done at the operator's outlet, especially if the user has many prepaid cards.

"If anyone fails to register regularly, because NIK and 16-digit family card, so sometimes sprained (wrong typed) .I also remember my NIK, while reading also sometimes miss," said Rudiantara.

The prepaid card registration process will end on February 28, 2018; unregistered prepaid cards will be gradually blocked. This step is implemented by the government to prevent fraud, as well as the spread of hoaxes and hate speech via cellular.
