Fake websites, apps followed up

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) today said it has referred all suspected fraudulent LeaveHomeSafe websites and mobile apps to Police for follow-up.   It said the fraudulent LeaveHomeSafe mobile app situation is running rampant, adding that making or using those fake apps may breach relevant laws.   While explanatory work on the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app will continue, the OGCIO reminded the public to discern fact from fiction and not to believe in fake and false information.   The Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data also issued a press release on February 19 which confirmed that the app is in compliance with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance's relevant requirements.   The OGCIO reiterated that the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app does not require registration for use and it does not have a tracking function. Venue check-in data will not be uploaded or transferred to the Government or any other systems, and is saved on users' mobile phones only.   Matching of users' check-in data and the issuing of health alerts will only be carried out within the app. Users' whereabouts will not be disclosed.   The app does not pose a risk to privacy, the OGCIO noted.   Given that the app has undergone and passed security risk assessment and auditing as well as privacy impact assessment conducted by independent third parties to ensure its compliance with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance, members of the public can feel at ease when using the app.   The OGCIO also reminded people that visiting or downloading websites or mobile apps of doubtful origin pose risks to cyber security and privacy. They should adopt proper information security measures and must not defy the law.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
