Here’s what you need to know about Australia’s coronavirus tracking app

The Federal Government is planning to release a new app to help it track and trace coronavirus.

Key points:

  • The Government’s coronavirus app will track contact with other people, not your location
  • It will automatically collect the phone number, name, age and postcode of a person you are physically near for more than 15 minutes
  • This information is encrypted and stored locally on your phone. It will only be uploaded to a central government server if you test positive to coronavirus

The tracing app will be a tool to augment traditional manual contact tracing, by using Australians’ phones to help detect who they have been in close proximity with.
