MALE STAFF POPS HEAD INTO LADIES CHANGING ROOM, SCARES HALF NAKED CUSTOMER

I have never once doubted the security of a changing room. However, I have come to realise that even in one of the safest countries in the world, our safety can be easily compromised.

GRAB PRIVACY BREACH: LADY RECEIVES DETAILED RECEIPTS OF RANDOM USER’S GRAB RIDES

You have made me an unwitting stalker. I have been receiving multiple Grab receipts of another customer's trips all the way from Philippines, to my email address. Whom, from here on, I shall refer to as Mr Pink (as he is labeled pink in my screenshots). I've received so many receipts that I think I have a pretty good idea where Mr Pink lives, and where he works. I also have established a pattern that he comes home pretty late after work - probably why he needs to take a Grab in the first place.

BEWARE OF THIS PINOY MAID! BRING BF TO MY HOUSE & RUN ILLEGAL BUSINESS IN S’PORE

I just spent the last 4 hours finding out and gathering sufficient evidence against my ungrateful maid who is having an affair with a maid agency owner (not sure if his agency is even legit) and have invited him to my house while nobody was home. She is also a big business women, running an illegal maid recruitment service with said singaporean guy to illegally smuggle maids into China. I'm just absolutely speechless, such an entrepreneur but can't do simple things like remembering to close windows after she opened them.

GOVT SURVEY STAFF INVADES MY PRIVACY, KNOCKS DOOR TO DO SURVEY AT 10PM

I live in Yishun ring road. Tonight, a lady knocked on my door to conduct a survey saying she is from blackbox research representing ECDA.

IDA S’PORE PUTS UP JOB AD TO REPLACE ONE SPECIFIC EMPLOYEE, BREACH OF PRIVACY LAW?

like a typical under-employed IT ‘professional’ seeking a perm role, I chanced upon an interesting ad by iDA titled, “Replacement for Kenneth Yeo Wee”. Wow! Is “Replacement” the job title, and “Kenneth Yeo Wee” the name of a Smart Nation campaign? This is an obvious breach of the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) by iDA, by inadvertently revealing an individual’s name, in this case possibly a former iDA staff. Isn’t iDA supposed to be the authority of Infocomm, and an advocate for information and privacy protection?

HUMAN RIGHT LAWYER: S’PORE HAS SECURITY BUT AT WHAT COST TO OUR PRIVACY & FREEDOMS?

Singapore is a nation that has been fortunate enough to have avoided terror attacks for decades. In recent times, the Government has been taking pro-active steps in order to ensure that the security of the nation stays ahead of those that may wish to do it harm. Some of these measures include rolling out expanded CCTV coverage across the country, which already has extensive police CCTV networks. This may very well be a useful to combating terrorism. The question is, what are the means by which we reach the end goal? At what cost comes our freedom and security?
