Covid-19, contact tracing and privacy
« on: June 26, 2020, 08:20:54 am »
I came across a couple of web pages that are relevant to our lock-down status and might be of interest to Forum readers.
The privacy issues of contact-tracing applications may account for the poor take-up of mobile 'phone "apps", and with good reason. Here are the links:
1. https://protonmail.com/blog/privacy-contact-tracing-apps/?utm_campaign=ww-en-2c-mail-coms_con-monthly_newsletter&utm_source=proton_users&utm_medium=link&utm_content=2020_june&utm_term=mail
2. https://ncase.me/contact-tracing/

By the way:  ProtonMail offers free and very secure mail and VPN services, and their customer care is first class even for non-paying users.  [I have no commercial interest in ProtonMail]
