In this pandemic world. You don't have a right to privacy. Apple and Google will now embed software into iOS and Android to track and correlate all of your movements. The novel idea is known as "contract tracing". Don't believe Cook and Pichai - they know Jack about the what the code really does. You will be tracked while you are living and while your are dying in a hospital says the New York Times. It is to your benefit that the state knows your every movement. Bye, bye civil liberties!
@AppDefects But the very nature of Bluetooth, can create automatic associations with mobile or devices which may not actually work across all smart phones, and you may actually be in a completely different room than them, and they may not actually had an interaction at all.
I would certainty not trust big organisations using a Pandemic to hide their real intent - I mean what guarantee do we have for any of them to turn it off. It will be misused or never turned off at all. This approach is almost as bad as the Cyber-criminals taking advantage of the current situation to take advantage of other's weaknesses. If we accept this, we might as well shut down the brain and go into hibernation.
