SINGAPORE: The Government moved one step closer to formally restricting the use of personal contact tracing data in police investigations to serious offences, as it introduced a Bill in Parliament on Monday (Feb 1) spelling out what these offences are. 

TraceTogether tokens handed out again at 38 CCs - but without the long queues


SINGAPORE - Residents lined up on Monday (Jan 18) to collect their TraceTogether tokens - but this time without the long queues seen in October.
Distribution of the devices - an alternative to the Covid-19 contact tracing app for those who prefer not to use a phone - resumed at 38 community centres and community clubs (CCs), 12 weeks after it was suspended due to overwhelming demand.
Only a few people were queueing at Anchorvale Community Club, Toa Payoh Central Community Club and Kallang Community Club when The Straits Times visited on Monday.
Finance controller Chris Tay, 49, described his experience in Kallang as "smooth and orderly". He said he was turned off by the queues during the previous collection period but this time had managed to collect his token in a few minutes.

SINGAPORE, Jan 10 — Acknowledging its error in not stating that TraceTogether data is not exempt from the Criminal Procedure Code, the Government said on Friday that it will pass legislation next month formalising its assurance that data collected for criminal investigations from its TraceTogether and SafeEntry programmes would be restricted to “serious offences”.
In a press release, the Smart Nation and Digital Government Office (SNDGO) under the Prime Minister’s Office noted that Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister-in-charge of the Smart Nation Initiative, and K Shanmugam, Minister for Home Affairs and for Law, had on Tuesday assured Parliament and the public that the use of TraceTogether data in criminal investigations would be restricted to serious offences.

The TraceTogether scheme, one of the most widely used in any country, has raised privacy fears
Singapore said on Monday its police will be able to use data obtained by its coronavirus contact-tracing technology for criminal investigations, a decision likely to increase privacy concerns around the system.
The technology, deployed as both a phone app and a physical device, is being used by nearly 80% of the 5.7 million population, authorities said after announcing its use would become compulsory in places like shopping malls.
