NBI wants each person to have only one social media account and to register their SIM cards to prevent online scams

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is advocating just one social media account per person to combat the rise of cybercrime and online scams, with Facebook at the forefront and the absolute minimum.

To strengthen the mandate, NBI-Cybercrime Division chief Victor Lorenzo stated the proposed step requiring the registration of prepaid subscriber identity module (SIM) cards must be approved. “Making tulong sa perspective of law enforcement ‘yung one person, one social media account. Lorenzo said, “Malaki din tulong yung SIM [Card] Registration Act nation.”

Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III reaffirmed in June that there should be a “one person, one Facebook account” regulation in place for the 2018 elections to combat online trolling.

Similarly, PNP Chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar agreed with Sen. Pres. Sotto’s proposal, saying that in order to prevent the spread of fake news and scams, Facebook should require users to use their real names. “There should be more citizen commitment and accountability,” PNP Chief Gen Eleazar added, “so it won’t be all fake news, character assassination, and even scams that we’re seeing.”

All measures relating to the subject are now pending in the Senate and House of Representatives.
