This App stores and sends your GPS data and Bluetooth data to the Government of India.

This App requires 

  • High precise locations services such as Global Positioning System (GPS) and 
  • Bluetooth needs to be always on while registering the App.
This high precise location services can exactly identify your location accurately within 3 meters so there is a high chance you will be monitored every time.

The Bluetooth needs to be always on so that your Bluetooth will connect but not pair to the other devices within a 6-meter radius around you so you will be sending data about your those you came to contact, friends and family.

This app helps the government to track and trace their contacts easily when anyone contracts the virus and helps diagnoses them too.

My Suggestion

Better be safe than sorry, well the data collected by the Indian Government is to help us. Unless you are doing something wrong there is nothing to fear. No one wants to be infected right? Then why not install this app and help the government save time and money. These are crucial at this time of the pandemic.

If you have another spare phone with you, install the app on that phone if you are worried about battery life.

And another feature is you can opt for volunteering when it's required. I think when there is a requirement in manpower the Indian Government will involve volunteers to help the government.

If you are still worried about your data then check out the privacy policy of Aarogya Setu App.
