Apple, Google Announces Location Tracking Ban in Contact Tracing Apps

Ban on Contact Tracing Apps — What Would Be The Reason?

  • Not everyone was interested in installing a contact tracer in their mobile phone/tablet. Because of the shortage of data, it became difficult to provide the expected outcome.
  • The government has access to contact tracing applications, which made the users concerned about their details being monitored or compiled by the government.
  • The contact tracing apps were not as efficient in providing user privacy and data security.
