Kuala Lumpur : SalamWeb Technologies MY Sdn. Bhd., an Islamic based Internet suite of services, on January 17 unveiled a digital ecosystem for Muslims around the globe to discover, connect, and contribute in a free, safe online environment.

Inspired by the universal desire for authentic, positive online experiences, SalamWeb is introduced a range of connected Internet services including SalamWeb Browser, SalamNews, Salam-Chat and SalamSadaqah.

Endorsed by Amanie Shariah Supervisory Board, in conformity with Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation's (MDEC's) Islamic Digital Economy Mi'yar, SalamWeb's products have been thoughtfully designed to optimise the Islamic way of life.

SalamWeb Browser has inbuilt features such as a Qibla compass, prayer timings and a custom news feed aggregated from verified news sources.

An important feature of the SalamWeb Browser is the SalamProtect, an advanced content filter that is customised to an individual's way of life.

SalamProtect alerts users on inappropriate content, allowing them an option to either continue ahead or withdraw from the content. This includes content which could be potentially explicit, offensive or fraudulent.

SalamProtect also allows users to assign a SalamTag to a website - appropriate, neutral or inappropriate. Each SalamTag received is reviewed against our internal process and guidelines to ensure fairness.

The more webpages a user SalamTags, the better SalamWeb's content aggregator works. Through this feature, SalamWeb will deliver curated content that matches users’ SalamTags.

By involving the community to tag content they deem appropriate or inappropriate, SalamProtect not only allow users to be in complete control of their online experience but helps build a safer and secure like-minded digital Ummah.

Another important feature is SalamSadaqah which incorporates the Islamic practice of Sadaqah (voluntary charity) to the Internet browsing experience.

To encourage the community to be part of the SalamWeb experience, each web search or content report made by users, will be matched to a donation amount made by SalamWeb.

With SalamSadaqah, users can convert their everyday Internet experience to a charitable cause.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, Puan Hajjah Hasni Zarina, Managing Director of Salam Web Technologies MY Sdn. Bhd., said, "Our mission is to give people the power to build a digital Ummah and bring the world closer together. SalamWeb aims to empower the global Muslim and help them lead a digital life which is consistent with their values and beliefs. We strongly believe in the power of the community and with our products, users have the choice to browse content that matters the most to them and have an online experience that is customized for their way of life. We work with both local and global partners to ensure our products are in line with Islamic values while also embracing the lifestyle of modern Muslims."
