Will you be downloading the COVIDSafe App?

There has been controversy surrounding the government’s tracing app that is designed to help trace people who might have come into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. It’s been downloaded more than 1 million times but there is confusion around the tracking aspect of it and has people worried about privacy. LiveTribers, will you be downloading COVIDSafe app? Are you worried about privacy or do you think people are unnecessarily concerned?

    It was unfortunate that uncertainties were not avoided before this govt. started the broad publicity campaign, there is an u undercurrent of distrust lingering on about it because of that initial attempt rushing it in too quickly. Only 4-5 days more were needed to rectify any of that as far as I remember - now it's a hard slog to regain the unnecessarily spooked sections of society.

    Yep,very happy to do it. I dont understand why people are worried about privacy,we are isolated in our homes.Im sure if the government wanted to know our private life he could do it now. We all need to get moving again.

    No I haven't downloaded it yet but I will, I can't comment about this yet but realistically we should be very worried about privacy but the bigger worry should be the virus itself and the ramifications if no vaccine can be found that should be the worry

    Did it on day 1. Hopefully enough people will do it to make it worth while.

    Yes downloaded as soon as could. If most mobile users did this the overall lockdown could be reduced allowing many of us to resume working and socialising again. In truth if you use my Gov,Facebook, Instagram, et al your privacy is probably more compromised than using the Corona safe application.

    Yes I have downloaded the app, I have nothing to hide and I’d do almost anything to help life get back to normal, I desperately want to see my children and grandchildren!

    Yes, I've downloaded the app. Considering we are already being tracked - unless you don't have a mobile phone, use the internet, or drive a car with GPS - and it may help to 1. save lives and 2. ease restrictions, it seems like a good idea to me.

    Have already downloaded. I will do my little bit to try and keep myself and my family safe.

    I don't think so as I rarely use my mobile phone. I rarely have my mobile phone on, so I don't think the data would be very useful for them. I am concerned that the information would go to a foreign company.
