We Built an Anonymous COVID-19 Contact Tracing App in One week



When I heard current contact tracing apps sacrifice users’ privacy by tracking our location, I knew there has to be a better way. So I joined three other students at my school to create an anonymous contact tracing app for COVID-19 that does not track your location. The core operations rely on the DP-3T algorithm. We also track COVID-19 statistics in 1,329 zip codes and cities in Maryland with features like GIS mapping and localized statistics.

  1. I agree that privacy concerns are the main hurdle to contact tracing. Would everyone have to download the app though? I just don't know how we could get everyone to agree on that…Don't you think we should start the old fashioned type of phone-call contact tracing in the meantime? I made this video to try to help people understand because they seem confused. https://youtu.be/7E7yVNxltvU
