The government has warned users not to install any payment applications from unknown links received over email, SMS or social media citing high possibility of phishing attacks.

To this end, the cybersafety and cybersecurity awareness division of the Ministry of Home Affairs has asked users to verify and install authentic e-wallet apps directly from the app store (Google/ iOS Store).

In addition, it has also warned people not to open links provided in suspicious emails as this may lead to malicious websites.
