A survey by the Ministry of Internal Security reveals: How much the public agrees with the GSS | Israel Today


Only 52% agree with the location • As the age increases, so does the agreement to provide a location through the "Sakmon" • Secular and traditional people agree more with Arabs and ultra-Orthodox


The first public opinion poll of its kind that examined the operation of the "Sakmon" system, a digital enforcement measure to check the location of isolation barriers, reveals that people aged 65-45 are more willing to share their position than young people, and ultra-Orthodox are less willing to share traditional, Western and secular.

Against the background of the decision to approve GSS identities for the infected, the survey reveals that more than half of those committed to isolation do not want to be followed and fear intrusion into privacy.

The summoning system, the isolation verification system developed by the police, makes it possible to carry out "smart enforcement" of insulators in response to the message.

Insulation debtors receive a text message that includes a link, and by clicking on the link, the same person agrees to open the GPS.

After clicking on the link, the police cross-reference the information that comes up with his residential address or with the address declared by the isolation debtor.
