India requires all workers to use its COVID-19 tracking app

India is now mandating that all workers use its COVID-19 contact tracing app, even though there are concerns it violates policies. The country’s home ministry will require that all workers, public or private, use its Aarogya Setu app starting May 4th.

Although the app relies on anonymous device identities and stores encrypted records of Bluetooth interactions with other devices, the Internet Freedom Foundation said the app doesn’t meet data protection standards or provide enough transparency for algorithms.
