Aman feature added to Sahel app to prevent phishing


The official spokesman of the unified government application of electronic services “Sahel” Yousef Kathem, announced Thursday the launching of the Communications and Information Technology Commission’s “Aman” service, to monitor phishing scams. In a statement, Kathem said that Aman (safety) service will appear to users through the commission’s services list on “Sahel” application, allowing people to directly report phishing scams.

The goal is to allow application users to report any phishing attempt, whether through messages or fake calls, he said.

The service also aims to monitor all forms of electronic fraud facing citizens and residents through various means, involving text messages or voice calls, he pointed out. “Sahel” application was launched in 2021 mainly to enhance the efficiency and speed of public services within the framework of electronic transformation in Kuwait.
