Government of India launches Aarogya Setu app to track corona virus

The Government of India has officially launched the COVID-19 tracking app. Its name is ‘Aarogya Setu’. This app is available for Android and iOS platforms. The Arogya Sethu app is designed by the National Informatics Centre, which comes under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. It aims to give people accurate and accurate advice related to COVID-19 i.e. coronavirus. From the center, state governments have launched several tracking apps in the past few weeks to prevent the fast-footed coronavirus in the country.

Aarogya Setu App will help users to know if they are at risk of coronavirus infection. Has he been inadvertently infected with a corona virus infected with an infected person?

The Next Web first informed this app. According to them, the Arogya Setu app uses a government database of infected people. However, no information has been given by the Government in this regard.

The COVID-19 Tracker app currently supports 11 languages, including Hindi and English. In addition, it takes recourse to Bluetooth to access the location. To use the Arogya Setu app, the user must first register his mobile number. After completing the first step, the app will ask users for credentials, which is optional. For those who were upset about the app’s privacy policy, the government has claimed that the store data in the app is ‘ encrypted ‘ and will not be shared with any third party app.

As soon as you go to the app’s home screen, the app tracks the user’s location to tell if it’s in a safe place. Not only that, but Android users can also read the health ministry’s live tweets on this app. The features of Android and Apple users are almost the same.

It was reported last week that Niti Aayog is also working on the Coronavirus tracking app, named Cowin-20. Next Web claims that Aarogya Setu is the final version of CoWin-20. Also, state governments are launching separate coronavirus tracking apps to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
