The multi-operator policy through Law No. 36 of 1999 on Telecommunications, which was then followed by the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, gave rise to the term "suddenly online". The We Are Social report in January 2021 said that as many as 195.4 million Indonesians access the internet, 96.4% access through smartphones. The largest number of internet users through smartphones is the age of 16-24 know which is 96.4%. Digital platforms began to be widely used both in the banking sector, electronic buying and selling transactions, online transportation, payments to borrowing and borrowing money. Digital platforms are also used in the public sector, through the PeduliLindungi application, which is used to detect Covid19 exposure history.
