The Anti-Fake News Centre warned people that phoney Thai Chana applications are making the rounds on the Internet and warned that such apps actually carried malware to steal users’ personal information.
The government had introduced its Thai Chana (Thai Victory) Covid-19 contact-tracing platform on May 17 to allow customers to check-in and out of venues by scanning a QR code.
“The real Thai Chana domain names are www.ไทยชนะ.com or www.thaichana.com that people can use to check-in and out of venues,” officials at the centre advised.
“The fake domain names are thaichana.pro, thai-chana.asia and thaichana.asia created to trick people into downloading these applications,” it warned.
The officials added that people can contact the real ThaiChana hotline at 1119 anytime for more information.
