Earlier, Jimenez said DICT made final configurations on the precinct finder to ensure it will not be hacked like what happened in 2016.

The poll official is referring to the 2016 “Comeleak” data breach where the Comelec website was defaced and hacked, with sensitive voter information of over 77 million voters compromised and leaked on the Internet.
