What Are Coronavirus Mobile Apps?

Coronavirus mobile apps are programs that governments, hospitals, colleges, universities, and other groups are using to aid in the public response to COVID-19. These applications and dashboards can track symptoms, provide the latest data about the spread of the virus, help us limit contact, and much more.

The programs help you find what you need to know about the virus in several ways.

1) Aarogya Setu App

Aarogya Setu uses contact tracing to record details of all the people you may have come in contact with, as you go about your normal activities. If any one of them, at a later point in time, tests positive for COVID-19, you are immediately informed and proactive medical intervention is arranged for you.

For registration of Aarogyasetu, the individual needs an Indian mobile number operated in India.

To protect yourself from criminals, misinformation, and security concerns:

  • Do your research. Before you download an app, read about the company that made it and check reviews.

  • Check an appís permissions. Permissions are information that the app can access on your device, like your location and phone contacts. Ask yourself if the permissions make sense for the appís purpose.

  • Use trustworthy sources. Make sure that COVID-19 news and information on social media apps and dashboards come from a reliable source, such as a government agency or a recognized health care organization.

  • Verify a personís identity. If someone contacts you through an app and says they work for a government or health group, contact the organization directly to check.
