The new MySejahtera with support for MySJ Trace is now available for all Android and iOS devices!
Here is what you need to know!
MySJ Trace : A New MySejahtera Feature!
MySJ Trace is a new MySejahtera feature, which allows for more accurate contact tracing using Bluetooth technology. It also removes the need to manually check out from the locations you checked in earlier.
Once enabled, your phone will automatically communicate with other phones that have MySJ Trace enabled as well, to determine the distance and length of contact. This eliminates the need to manually check-out.
This allows Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) to more accurately determine if you are a close contact of a COVID-19 positive person.
Obviously, this feature only works if everyone has MySJ Trace enabled, so its effectiveness will depend greatly on how many people activate it.
MySejahtera with MySJ Trace : Now Available For Android + iOS!
MySJ Trace is currently available only in MySejahtera version 1.1.3 and above.
It was first introduced in MySejahtera version 1.1.3 which is available only from the HUAWEI AppGallery
But on 25 December 2021, it was also introduced in MySejahtera version 1.1.4 in the Google Play Store, so all Android users will have access to it.
On 30 December 2021, it was finally introduced in MySejahtera version 1.1.4 in the Apple App Store, for both iPhone and iPad!
MySJ Trace : How To Enable It In MySejahtera?
MySJ Trace is (currently) NOT mandatory and is an opt-in feature, so you actually have to manually enable it, if you want to participate.
Step 1 : Update to the MySejahtera version that has MySJ Trace.
Step 2 : Open MySejahtera, and you will see a black MySJ Trace section in the default Check-in screen.
Step 3 : Tap on Setup MySJ Trace to begin the setup process.
Step 4 : Tap on the Start button in the initial explainer screen.
Step 5 : Tap the I agree button to consent to give your “interaction information” for the past 14 days to the Malaysia Ministry of Health for “contact tracing purposes”.
Step 6 : In the App Permissions screen, tap on the Allow button.
Step 7 : First, you will be asked to allow MySejahtera to access your smartphone’s location. Tap on While using the app.
Step 8 : Next, you will be asked to allow MySejahtera to detect your location all the time. Tap on Allow all the time.
Step 9 : Now, you will be asked to enable Bluetooth, if it is not already enabled.
Step 10 : Once all necessary permissions have been enabled, just tap on the Close button.
That’s it! You have now activated MySJ Trace in MySejahtera.
If at any time you do not wish to temporarily deactivate it, you can simply disable Bluetooth, and turn Bluetooth back on again when you need it.
