Court orders Israeli Govt. to legislate COVID-19 phone-tracking

Israel’s Supreme Court has ordered the Govt. to bring its use of phone tracking deployed in the battle against COVID-19 under legislation. In March, PM Netanyahu’s cabinet approved emergency regulations that enabled the Shin Bet internal security service to tap into cellular data to retrace the movements of people infected by the virus. The court cited grave dangers to privacy in its ruling.

Glad to see push back against the tracking measures govt is attempting to put in place. I feel like I can be tracked by google or Apple easily, so maybe it’s naive to think we still have privacy, but I’d at least like to protect what little we have left.
