General information

Why is there no app?

Because a smartphone browser is all you need for decent contact tracing.

Savitas QR uses no smartphone app, because it does not need it. In fact, there are real benefits to not having an app:

  • it lowers the threshold to deploy across a broader population, as people do not need to download an app;
  • it avoids the uncontrollable approval cycles of foreign app stores (up to 2-3 weeks, critical in case of urgent upgrades or bug fixes);
  • it implies lower implementation and maintenance costs;
  • it visibly strengthens the privacy case, as a phone web browser is technologically barred from accessing personal data on the phone.
