Reading time: 1 minute

Switzerland’s contact-tracing app has been released. How secure is the app? What data is actually being stored about the users and why are Apple and Google involved? Find answers to the most important questions in our FAQ.

As an additional measure to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, the Swiss government has commissioned the development of a contact-tracing smartphone application called “SwissCovid”. Despite being a desirable goal, it is not always possible to avoid mistrust and uncertainty among the public. To shed more light on frequently discussed concerns, we aim to answer a number of frequently asked questions in an easily understandable, yet technically precise manner.
