Test Achievement gives Belgian corona app good privacy report


Coronalert was examined by Test Achievement and approved. The app is privacy-friendly and easy to use.

What data does the app collect and to which servers is data sent? Which data is sent? Is the data on your smartphone and on the servers encrypted? Which encryption? How is the privacy of that data ensured? These and many other aspects were examined by Test Achievement in a specialized laboratory. Coronalert is currently also being tested by 10,000 people.

For a long time, there was a lot to do about the privacy-technical aspects of the app, which is why we also carefully tested it for these parameters. Nobody wants companies or hackers to be able to get away with health data. Or that the app is used for a purpose other than getting the corona virus under control. ”, It sounds at Test Achievement.

The analysis of the consumer organization shows that the app does not fail in terms of privacy. It is not possible to identify someone directly or indirectly on the basis of the collected and transmitted data.

The app works completely anonymously. “The app does not know where you are, who you are or who you have met. The only data that is exchanged are codes that are almost impossible to decipher. Moreover, it is only those codes, which then change frequently, that are stored on the central server, no names of patients or their contactsSays Simon November of Test Purchase.

The exchange of data between the app and the servers is encrypted and the servers themselves are resistant to possible attacks by hackers. In terms of privacy, the app could hardly do better”He adds.

Lots of transparency

The consumer organization emphasizes that consumers are also well informed about the privacy policy and that explicit permission must be given for almost every action. The source code of the app is also fully online: this shows that people want to be as transparent as possible.

What does Coronalert do?

The Belgian app can keep track of who the user has been in contact with without knowing that person. All contacts are mapped completely automatically and anonymously, so that the app can work faster than telephone contact research. In addition, the installation of the application is also completely voluntary and uses little energy due to the use of ‘Bluetooth Low Energy’.

Test Purchase also states that there will be an umbrella “gateway” that is linked to the national servers, so that the app can also be used abroad.

The Coronalert app should be available for iOS & Android before the end of September. You can find everything about the app here.
