NHS contact-tracing app must not be released to public without privacy protections, MPs say

The NHS contact-tracing app must not be released in its current form without increased privacy and data protections, a parliamentary committee has said.

The Joint Committee on Human Rights said it had “significant concerns” that must be addressed before it is rolled out to the general public nationwide.

The app, which is currently being trialled on the Isle of Wight, records users’ movements and can be used to alert people if they have had contact with someone who has developed coronavirus symptoms.
