People raised this question
Peoples raised the question that Arogya Setu app collecting all our personal information like who we are, when and where we are going etc. However, the government said in response to the questions that the location feature has been made in a very secure manner. The government said that the user’s location is saved and saved in a server through code. Also, the user’s location is used only in three situations. First, when a user is registering on this app, second when he is filling the corona information in the app, or when the app itself is automatically tracking the user’s location after giving the user information.
Along with this, some people had questioned that the data related to Kovid-19 appears in the user’s mobile home screen, which increases the risk. Responding to this, the government said that, 500 meters, 1 km, 2 km, 5 km and 10 km have been covered to get information about corona patients in the app. Beyond this, if a user wants to get information, then it is not available. After more effort, the HTTP header brings it back to 1 kilometer. API calls are made via the web application firewall, so it is completely secure.
