With the wide spread of COVID-19 worldwide, we are indeed happy to see that Singapore Government has taken a further step to help with TraceTogether mobile app is the world's first contact tracing app in order to enhance contact tracing efforts as to control the outbreak. As we learned that this TraceTogether app was developed by the Government Technology Agency which can easily downloadable by anyone using Singapore mobile number with Bluetooth function.
You will be required to give permission during the setup and also need to enable the Bluetooth function so that it will be able to detect other parties in close proximity which is 2 metres apart or up to 5 metres for at least 30 minutes. This information will be recorded and stored locally within the users' phones for 21 days of the incubation period of the coronavirus. This will be a much better solution than relying on the memory of interviewees as it can be difficult to recall all contacts during a period of 14 days as well as those other strangers in the street that they do not have their information. As such, this app will be able to facilitate the process of contact tracing in a much better and faster way. At least it will also give us awareness of whether or not we had come in contact with those infected with COVID-19 without guessing if yes or no. This will actually help you to take all necessary action in advance to monitor your health regards to any sign of flu-like symptoms. As what we like to have this type of early detection to reduce much risk of spreading the virus and in return protecting our families and loved ones.
It is rest assured that no personal detail like names will be collected including user's phone contact list or address book. As such, the app will only address who you are in contact with that maybe exposed to the virus. It will store the logs in the local users' phone which will be encrypted. It means that logs do not contain user's phone number but just a set of cryptographically generated temporary IDs. Therefore the logs will leave the owner's phone only when the owner uses the app to send the information to the authorities as to help to facilitate contact tracing. Other safeguards which will be the app will only be active during the outbreaks and will cease when contact tracing ends. Then the app will prompt the users to deactivate the functionality.
This TraceTogether app can be downloaded via Google Play Store and the Apple App Store from your mobile phone. Just need to turn on your Bluetooth to be in operation without the need of Wifi or mobile data. Thumb Up for this Initiative!
