Malaysians who download the MySejahtera app can get RM50 credited to their e-wallet


If you still don't have the MySejahtera app on your phone, now would be a good time to download it. The government first announced last Friday that it will be giving away RM50 e-wallet credit to all Malaysians, a move that is meant that encourage the use of e-wallet apps. However, it has now been confirmed that the condition to this is installing the MySejahtera mobile app.

The condition was announced earlier today during a press conference. Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri declared that Malaysians must download the app and register first before they are eligible to receive the RM50 e-wallet credit. The e-cash will be distributed in July 2020 and users can choose to have the e-cash credited to selected platforms like GrabPay, Touch 'n Go eWallet, and Boost eWallet.


As a reminder, MySejahtera is an app that was developed by the Malaysian government, designed to help monitor the COVID-19 situation in Malaysia. Using the app, you'll be able to see which areas are considered hot-spots (red zones), info on COVID-19, and locate the nearest hospitals that provide COVID-19 screening. It can also serve as a contact tracing program.

RM50 might not sound like a lot, it's practically free money so why miss out? To find out more about the app or download it, you can visit the official website.
