Deleted mine two weeks ago TTT
I downloaded the English version in the mistaken belief it was the one needed to get your COVID pass.
Then I deleted it and downloaded the correct app for that …
Question Author
yep, I now have the one with the pass.
But it is a world beating app…
Question Author
the app does what it's designed to do but we don't need that now.
We wanted the app in March 2020, but the first one they built didn’t work, so they had to start again. After much delay we got it last October, a few weeks before the vaccine was approved.

The only people who have benefitted from it are Boris’ chums who were given £35 Million to build it.
Ick I did that last night very good system.
Are you not interested if you are infected then?
Sorry what did you do?

The app in question doesn’t tell you you are infected …
Sorry didn’t have my glasses on .
I thought you were talking about the NI Covid proof app
My second part was to the op and others and should have said‘don’t you care if you are possibly infected?’ As I am assuming that they are talking about deleting the track and trace app.
I care if I’m infected but I can take a test to check that.
I don’t need to be told I was, or may have been, in contact, with someone who is infected.
Especially now. I have never used a T and T app largely because it felt pointless; while the pandemic was at its height I was ne er in contact with anyone for the required time - and the last thing I wanted was to have to self-isolate possibly needlessly.
Then there was the risk with manual T and T of being in the same place as someone who tested positive but not necessarily ever in contact with them. Particularly unfortunate as I think it’s been shown that you can’t pick the virus up from surfaces.
But someone should have foreseen an issue with an explosion of app pings once mostly vaccinated people starred mixing again in the midst of another wave of infections
In fact NI had a test and trace app well before the rest of the UK.
I believe you have to self isolate if it pings you tho I’m not sure
//Then there was the risk with manual T and T of being in the same place as someone who tested positive but not necessarily ever in contact with them//

My experience was the opposite. The only phone call I got from them was to tell me I was living with someone with covid and should isolate. 6 days (!) after she had already told me.
Never had the spy app in the first place.
'...don’t you care if you are possibly infected?’

No.

I cannot spend my life wondering whether I have a virus or not. If I feel unwell I'll seek medical treatment (if it's sufficiently severe to warrant it). If I don't, I won't. In any case, I doubt I'll get any because the primary healthcare service where I live has all but ground to a halt, but that's another - albeit related - argument.

I've had my two jabs and almost everybody else who wants them should have had them by now. That's all I'm prepared to do because no matter what measures are imposed (short of locking everybody inside their homes 24/7 for the foreseeable future - and even that won't work because there will be people out on the street imposing the lock in) this virus will spread.

It is now apparent that measures to contain the virus have taken a huge toll on the (non-Covid) health of the nation, almost certainly far in excess of any damage caused by the virus. That's not to mention the economic damage that continues to accumulate. It's time to stop.
Not sure it’s fair to call it a “spy app”

Some countries as previously discussed do use apps to check whether you’ve left your house or not. I can see that the apps as developed here work anonymously. The Bluetooth just picks up a handshake ID and stores it for a while. Then that ID gets flagged if it is updated with a positive test result. If the ID is still on your contact list then Uncle Ping comes calling :-)
So it SHOULD all work without anyone knowing who you are
You probably read that the covid app spy’s on you on a FaceBook page. Oh the irony.
Neither of us has a smartphone, so the app doesn't apply to us - but my daughter switches her app. off and her husband has now removed it from his phone after it 'pinged' him when he'd been blamelessly working from home all day and hadn't left his house or garden!

Well done Scotland - a bit of badly needed common sense amongst the general hysteria which now seems to be the normal state for much of this country. Stiff upper lip recall time?
I never downloaded it in the first place.

I think Facebook would remove such a page, gromit.
Anyway, nice to see you back. If it's not a secret, did they return your moderator badge?
Did sunk sink?
