The contact tracing app that identifies if you have been in contact with someone who becomes infected?

Why not The80s?

Yes, think it's an important factor in trying to help us get back to some kind of normality. Don't care about my data being used as my data and everyone elses is picked up by so many other organisations.

FedHimtoTigers1990 Tue 28-Apr-20 19:10:26

Yes and i really don't understand why anyone wouldn't.

Yes if it gives any chance of lifting restrictions

duffeldaisy Tue 28-Apr-20 19:14:01

Yes. The quicker we can get to contact-tracing and isolating, the sooner we can get back to normal with less risk.

I will but reluctantly. They had an opportunity, supported by both tech giants and other nations of maintaining a high level of user privacy, through a decentralised database but, instead, decided to go down the path of centralised data collection.

Yes. I'm not 100% happy with the privacy/tracking/data collection but if it helps I'll do it.

I don't trust the government about this app.
Not sure why just worried about it.

Bubblesbubblesmybubbles Tue 28-Apr-20 19:21:05

Yes if it means lockdown relaxing sooner!!

Gronky Tue 28-Apr-20 19:22:29

Not sure why just worried about it.

To clarify, assuming nothing further changes, central authorities will be able to see who you've encountered (it's not clear at this stage whether they'll just be able to see non-identifiable IDs or actual personal details) while the model used in some other countries would only allow the individual to see if they'd encountered someone who's tested positive (who has to voluntarily disclose that information, without giving their details).

Assuming nothing changes, they still won't be tracking physical locations.

Northernsoullover Tue 28-Apr-20 19:24:02

Yes. Bring it on.

It's a little scary though, how they track yor location.

UpAndGoing Tue 28-Apr-20 19:27:26

how they track yor location.

Oops, that meant to say your.

Ilets Tue 28-Apr-20 19:27:53

No, my battery/phone can't handle it

LazyYogi Tue 28-Apr-20 19:28:23

If I can avoid it then no.
I'm am against these measures being mandatory. It's a slippery slope which we are already started down.

Yes - why wouldn’t you?

The government and a whole host of other agencies / companies already know exactly where you are - why would this bother you?

EskiSummerleaze Tue 28-Apr-20 19:39:39

No, I wouldn't unless I had to. What happens when people lie about having symptoms to avoid professional contact, does that force you into self isolation? Or is it only if you've been in contact with a confirmed case?
