Now, there’s a rumor circulating that It’s insisting that Apple, Google, or governments around the world have used the Coronavirus app to track your smartphone. If you’re currently ignoring social alienation and any local blocking advice, your wireless carrier will start tracking you before your iPhone tracks you.
Some also seem to believe this, although they haven’t actually installed the COVID-19 app released by their government, and others say their country hasn’t even released the COVID-19 tracking app. In fact, if you sneak out for a party, if you refuse to wash your hands properly, nothing on your phone will tell you what to do, or report to the government that you’ve violated social distance rules.
Still, your mobile phone carrier does know where you are, it just needs to locate you using the nearest signal tower, and how the carrier handles this information is another question. By contrast, the Coronavirus Contact Tracking app that Apple and Google should create doesn’t require location information, but rather they do it by finding how close they are to other users, regardless of location information.
The technology is now built into iOS and Android systems and is controlled by both users. Apple has now added an official application framework to iOS to take advantage of the technology. So the iPhone can now run the COVID-19 app effectively. The whole point of the Apple/Google system is that all the data takes place on your device. Some countries are trying to launch their own COVID-19 apps to obtain personal privacy data in a more intrusive way.
