German police under fire for using covid contract tracing app to find witnesses


Recommended Posts


German police drew criticism Tuesday for using an app to trace contacts from bars and restaurants in the fight against the pandemic as part of an investigation


I can see why they think "if the data is there and can help in the investigation then why not use it". But equally, people were reassured that if they installed the app their data would only be used for public health reasons, not for police investigations. This might discourage people from using the app in future.

And this is exactly why I have never used the NHS app and when I had covid didn’t answer to the track and trace lot.

I’ll add that I followed all relevant legislation/guidelines. It made me to ill not to 😂
