COVID-19 Mitigation

01 Challenge

Developed in collaboration with one of the EU country’s health agencies, decentralized and privacy–protecting iOS and Android apps empower users to protect their own and their communities health. App must ensure compliance with the EU’s ePrivacy Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). No third party should be able to obtain users’ virus exposure and health data.
Scope of work
  • Product strategy and EU regulations research
  • User experience design
  • User interface design
  • iOS and Android native mobile apps
02 Solution

User installs Bluetooth and Ultrasound enabled app, and shares geolocation with the government health agency servers. When user is in proximity of a person that has recently tested positive, user receives exposure notifications. User has options to enable personal-symptom checker, and with cryptographically protected identity register on the health agency’s site as self-quarantined. Consent is required for each functionality individually: personal-symptom trackers, digital contact-tracing and exposure-notification.
