Re: Tracing App developed by ETH for Covid-19

I have installed the SwissCovid app. earlier this week. So far nothing has happened, i.e. no reports, which is good. However, how can I tell if it is actually working ?

There's enough evidence in other countries that if we don't keep squashing new infections it will come back to bite us in the bum. Unless you want a second lockdown we still need track and trace and this could be a big help with that. Unless there are too many idiots around.
It seems the virus will not disappear. Eventually, it will be like season flu (Spanish flu now called flu type A, which appears every year and noone bother about it anymore)

Re: Tracing App developed by ETH for Covid-19

Got a sms this morning with a link to download the BAG tracing app.
Swisscom, Salt and Sunrise carry the costs for the data-exchange.

They were smart enough to add that the sms was sent out as a customer-information at the wish of the BAG who does not have my contact data.

That happened here June 26. I wonder what makes some cantons faster than others.

I also had that SMS in June (Kt Zurich) so no idea why there was a delay for Curley?

Re: Tracing App developed by ETH for Covid-19

Maybe she found her cell?

I've heard that a few times..."Where is your cell?" "Bah, I saw it somewhere. A week ago?".

LOL, While this could be me, I'm not that bad.

No idea why I got it later. I didn't ask for it at all.

Iíve never not received one at all yet and neither have any of my family.

My phone is too old to download it anyway.

The SwissCovid app doesn't have access to SIM, contacts list, or GPS.
It's utterly agnostic of these data, thus it's unable to send any thereof elsewhere.

The crazy thing is that people get their knickers in a twist about this, yet at the same time they don't give a rat's ass about the data harvesting that is known to happen. Google, FB, WA, Twitter, plus of course any number of other companies and government agencies including the US' NSA.

That's like watching your wallet like a hawk after you've deposited a pile of money on the road.
Does anyone actually think that this EF site is not harvesting data?

The App source code is open source. Anyone, especially techies can access and review the code. Not one indicator that GPS or any information on the phone is being harvested.

Trust me, Iím not from the government.
