Cell Phone Tracking Apps for Covid19
In a rare joint effort, Google and Apple are teaming up to implement a contact-tracking app to their phone systems - while at least theoretically - protecting our privacy. The apps will use the bluetooth-based technology and will work across both the iOS and Android phones.
Rollout of this new feature (Phase 1) is estimated for mid-May. The basics are that when you are within 30 feet of another human (with a cell phone) and you spend more than a few minutes in that proximity, each phone will exchange with the other phone a unique identifier number. The identifier number will be stored for 2 weeks. If a person gets sick and is tested positive for Covid19 - and obtains a confirmation code from their health-care provider, that person can go in the app on their phone and set it to identify all persons who they were in near-enough contact with over the past 2 weeks for their phone to have exchanged a unique identifier number. . . . . then the other people (with a matching identifier number) would receive a message on their phone indicating they may have been exposed and they should seek medical assistance, etc.On one hand, this sounds like a great service but there are a few “What Abouts?”:
Back in 2011, a similar app called FluPhone was developed in the UK - only about 1% of the population chose to participate. One would expect a much higher percentage of people to participate after the COVID19 experience, but concerns over privacy might still prevail.
Yun William Yu, a professor at the University of Toronto believes you CAN develop an app that serves contact-tracing, yet will still preserve privacy. The question is will he and his project team members prevail?
If you don't want to participate in this technology, you 'may' have a few options:
In addition to apps that can be loaded onto your phone - with or without your approval or even knowledge - the battery in your phone already provides a surprisingly accurate method of tracking you - now.
5G is really about improving the tracking capabilities - of knowing where you are and how long you are there - but in light of these new apps using the already existing bluetooth technology (or your battery) to track your location(s) one has to wonder at the new and improved capabilities that will be available to the 'authorities' soon.
