The Government of India has officially launched the COVID-19 tracking app. Its name is ‘Aarogya Setu’. This app is available for Android and iOS platforms. The Aarogya Setu app has been developed by the National Informatics Centre, which comes under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. While giving information about the app, it has been said that its objective is to give correct and accurate advice to the people related to COVID-19 i.e. Corona virus. Central and state governments have launched many tracking apps in the last few weeks to stop the rapid spread of Corona virus in the country.

Aarogya Setu App will help users to know whether they are at risk of corona virus infection or not. Has he knowingly or unknowingly got infected by coming in contact with a corona virus infected person or not?

The Next Web Who first gave information about this app. According to them, the Arogya Setu app uses the government database of infected people. However, no information has been given by the government in this regard.

The COVID-19 tracker app currently supports 11 languages, including Hindi and English. Apart from this, it takes the help of Bluetooth to access the location. To use the Arogya Setu app, first of all the user has to register his mobile number in it. After completing the first step, the app will ask users for credentials, which is optional. For those who were worried about the privacy policy of the app, the government has claimed that the data stored in the app is ‘encrypted’ and will not be shared with any third party apps.

As soon as you go to the home screen of the app, the app tracks the user’s location and tells whether he is in a safe place or not. Not only this, Android users can also read live tweets of the Health Ministry on this app. The features are almost the same for Android and Apple users.

Last week, news came that NITI Aayog is also working on a corona virus tracking app, named CoWin-20. Next Web claims that Arogya Setu is the final version of CoWin-20. Besides, state governments are also launching different coronavirus tracking apps to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
