Devices which require a thumbprint of the owners or residents before entering a multi-storey building isn’t illegal under the Personal Data Protection Act 2010.

In a written reply in the Dewan Rakyat today, the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia said this action did not contravene the Act if the building management had obtained permission from the owners and residents.

“Devices installed by the management which require thumbprints are one way to increase the security level in buildings,” the ministry said in response to a question from Ng Wei Aik (DAP-Tanjong).
