It is currently the age of smartphones, and everyone and their mother practically has at least one smartphone, am I right? While there are plenty of mobile apps available in the market, you’d know that in order to be at the top of the list, you need to have a fair amount of downloads.
This became a concern for Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MOHA) as they had developed a new app called SGSecure but despite extensive marketing, the numbers just did not pick up. Apparently, this was when MOHA decided to take matters into their own hands to boost statistics and allegedly force (yes, force!) their National Servicemen (NSF) to download the app.
FYI, the function of the SGSecure app is to be a “national movement to sensitise, train and mobilise Singaporeans to play a part to prevent and deal with a terrorist attack.” Okay, so basically it is a platform for people to report terrorist incidents in Singapore. Would you download it?
According to Coconuts, it looks like the non-commissioned officers (affectionately known as enciks) have made it compulsory for all NSFs to download the app or else they face the threat of being punished or worse, not being able to book out. Horrors of horrors!
Of course, this didn’t go down too well with the disgruntled NSFs because they left dozens of scathing reviews on the app, which make an interesting read TBH. A netizen even decided to screenshot some of the app’s reviews and posted it on Facebook, which quickly went viral.
Here are some of the other complaints by other NSFs that are just as savage. Judge for yourself.
You say until like that, you win liao lor!
