Launch of NCPC's ‘ScamShield' App
The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) has launched a mobile phone application, ‘ScamShield’ on 20 Nov 20. The app is jointly developed with Singapore Police Force (SPF) and GovTech, currently only available on iOS devices. The Android version is still in development.
Briefly, ScamShield actively works in the background to filter scam messages and calls from numbers used in illegal activities. This will greatly reduce the prospect of people being contacted by scammers.
NCPC would like to encourage usage of the app and dissemination of (attached) poster to raise awareness among employees, workers and the general public.
