COVID app

The Government of Canada has launched the COVID Alert app last week.

The app is supposed to inform its users whether their phone has been close to the person, who has later tested positive for the Covid-19 and shared such data.

The app promises to avoid collecting and storing personal data and instead operating based on phone locations as relative to each other only.
