Australia Tightens Privacy Protections on COVID-19 Tracing App
New legislation imposes stronger privacy protections on Australia’s planned contact-tracing app. “The Australian government’s coronavirus tracing app will have stronger privacy protections under legislation which has passed Parliament,” reports The New Daily.
The legislation was passed amid concerns about the government’s reluctance to be honest about the limitations of the app. It will put strict requirements on the collection, use and disclosure of COVIDSafe app data.
