MIT Technology Review COVID Tracing Tracker
There’s a deluge of apps that detect your covid-19 exposure, often with little transparency. Our Covid Tracing Tracker project will document them.
The Project will track and compare various contact tracing apps using five categories:
- Is it voluntary?
- Are there limitations on how the data gets used?
- Will data be destroyed after a period of time?
- Is data collection minimized?
- Is the effort transparent?
