Aarogya Setu App | मैं सुरक्षित। हम सुरक्षित। भारत सुरक्षित |
Publication/Creation DateApril 9 2020
DescriptionThe government of India launched an app called Aarogya Setu to help fight the spread of COVID-19 through contact tracing. The app uses Bluetooth and GPS to "[create] a secure and encrypted real-time social graph of the person". When a person tests positive for COVID-19 and reports this information, the government uses this social graph to contact those who were in close proximity with the infected individual, without sharing their personal identity. The app also helps with "risk self-assessment" through chat messages.
