It is secure and respects your privacy:
* It doesn’t track your location.
* It stores data on device only, and automatically deletes it after 14 days.
* The app does not record GPS data even if GPS is switched on.
* If you choose to provide a contact number, it will only be shared with SPKC and only if and when your contact with a COVID-19 case has been detected. SPKC will have access to the following data: phone number, contact date, signal strength, contact duration.
What exactly does contact mean here? 15+ minutes of up to ~2 m proximity to someone who also has this app switched on, and this information is encrypted and stored on both phones. The app will let you know if you have come in contact with a COVID-19 case – without revealing the sender or the recipient. And it will equip you with knowledge what to do when that happens.
The app uses Bluetooth technology and Google’s Exposure Notification API to ensure privacy and security.
