The Belgian corona app Coronalert is finally ready for launch for the general public. You can download the app from today via Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Just like in many other countries, the development of the Belgian corona app has encountered the necessary obstacles, but the app has surfaced in the Play Store and App Store today. Yesterday submitted Test Purchase the application had a final check, which went well. Coronalert received good marks for its privacy policy, one of the biggest concerns surrounding the app.

You may have already read how Coronalert works, but if not, we will summarize it again briefly. The app can only work effectively if you switch on your bluetooth, because a bluetooth connection is established with neighboring smartphones. Each contact is stored in a contact log on your smartphone for 14 days, the so-called incubation period. If someone of your registered contacts has passed a positive corona test, the application will notify you via a push notification. This way you can also have yourself tested to be sure. The fact that someone is infected must be entered by a doctor himself on the basis of a 17-digit code, which the user must generate afterwards in order to see the test result. So everyone has to do his or her bit.

Attention to privacy

During the development of the application, a great deal of attention has been paid to the privacy and freedom of each user. For example, participation in Coronalert is completely voluntary and anonymous. You do not have to register yourself with your name or email address. The bluetooth contacts also only exchange random IDs, and do not say anything about the owner of the smartphone. The disadvantage of bluetooth is that it increases the risk of ‘false positives’, and having your bluetooth on constantly also eats your battery. All data is decentralized and only temporarily stored on your smartphone itself; there is no central database. That way, all information is also inaccessible to third parties. The application is also very transparent about this privacy policy. If you want more information, surf to the website www.coronalert.be.

Coronalert can be downloaded from today via the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. On the Google Play page you can read that the application has now been downloaded more than 10,000 times. Are you going to download it too? Let the comments know!
