A few days ago, the Minister of Communication and Info, Rudiantara, has requested a number of social media platforms to create a security system.

The system requires users to open accounts by registering with the phone numbers.

Although not mentioned in detail, Facebook is the largest social media with the largest number of users in Indonesia. Maybe is one of the social media that intended by Rudiantara.

When asked for a response, Facebook Indonesia was unwilling to comment on the request from Rudiantara. A spokesman for Facebook Indonesia only said that so far they had served an option for the users to enter with the phone numbers. Although it’s not a must.

“If the addition of the phone number has indeed been applied as an option when registering an account,” said the representative of Facebook Indonesia.

As quoted on the Facebook page. It stated that future users can create a new acc armed with info on names, passwords, birth dates, gender. And it’s along with the e-mail addresses or the phone numbers too.

The phone number, in this case, is used by Facebook for security purposes.

Namely verification of the identity of the account owner. “For two-factor authentication.” Closed by the spokesman of Facebook Indonesia.

Previously, Rudiantara is claimed to have sent a request letter to a few social media. Related to the rules for opening social media accounts with the phone numbers.

This is done to down the circulation of hoax news through social media.

Rudiantara also asked social media to use the AI tech and machine learning to detect hoax news more quickly.

“It can search for the hoaxes more quickly. We will no longer need to search, just report. They should be able to do early detection using the AI and machine learning,” said Rudiantara at the time.
