Initially, 20,000 top government individuals responsible for decision-making would be launched at Beep Pakistan. In the following step, the scope of the application will be extended to other government officials.

When asked about the logic behind Beep Pakistan, he told the government that after a cyber-attack the mobile devices of neighbouring nation government employees were penetrated by a dedicated platform for official communication and sensitive government info were being ignored.

In the face of the cyber assault in the neighbouring state, the government decided to shift official communication to an internally controlled platform so that any sensitive material in the event of cyber attacks could be added or removed.
