A Data Protection Impact Assessment On The HSE's Covid Tracker App Has Been Published

It's due to be launched next week

A Data Protection Impact Assessment on the HSE's Covid Tracker App has been published.

The Health Service Executive is releasing key documents, including the source code, in relation to the App. 

The app will record if a user is in close contact with another user, by exchanging anonymous codes held on the users' phones.

Today's move is part of an ongoing commitment to openness and transparency in the development of the App, according to the HSE.
