Apple and Google will be ready to launch their contact tracing apps next month They have stated that they have added new features which will strengthen privacy protections and give health authorities more detailed data
Apple and Google mouth watering as they wait for all this data to come flowing in. They would have implemented this on there own if they thought they could get away with it. Now governments are asking for their help. WTF?
how is your data more private when your information is literally being sent to "health authorities"? Make that make sense
Watch the Twilight Zone: "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" for a preview of how people will act when this app starts sending its notifications.
Apple and Google have had this ability since mobile devices have had GPS . They already know where you are and where you have been.
Yet another example of crisis exploitation. This sickens me. The biggest thing is this is a permant aspect of cellphone use now. This pandemic is temporary.
Don't come crying to me when your data is misused if you install any of these apps.
Big brother. First its virus contact tracing, next it's tracing contacts of those who don't agree with the "flavor of the day" meaning the "popular belief" Beware folks I think this is scary. How long do you think it will be before we hear a report that the app was used for other purposes?
