This App is made to promote awareness and not to extract your data. 

It ensures that the data collected, i.e. mainly location and Bluetooth for distance calculation is encrypted. Thus, it searches in it’s database if anyone reported corona positive has any connection to your locality or not. 

Whereas activation Bluetooth gives you information if you have been around 2 meters of an infected person. 

           No extra information, personal or social, is anywhere accessible to anyone. Even the information you provide is encrypted. 

Pros of Aarogya Setu App-

  1. Aarogya Setu App is really a good initiative by the Government of India to spread awareness among the people and help them maintain social distancing. And all are based on simply creating a database of infected people and their place of residence. 
  2. Since everyone has a mobile, one can quickly check if he is living in a corona hotspot or not and could exercise extra care.
  3. The APP comes in more than a dozen significant languages, thus, making it linguistic friendly for almost every state and location.
  4. A thorough location check is done, and your personal location is checked too. Thus, one gets to know if he comes under “LOW RISK” or “HIGH RISK.”

Cons of Aarogya Setu App-

  1. The app relies mainly on its database, which is still not complete. One cannot check the state-wise infected person and locality as of now ( while writing this Article). Thus, without a full list, accuracy cannot be right.
  2. Again people could manipulate the data too. Thus, the wrong info in the database could mislead also.
  3. Few users have reported that the App is not working in the rooted devices. 
  4. People are not getting serious about the purpose of installing this APP. Thus, less installation can cause some effect on creating accurate databases.

Arogya Setu App was launched with a tagline-

मैं सुरक्षित । हम सुरक्षित । भारत सुरक्षित |

I.e. If I am safe, we are safe, and if we are secure the whole nation is SAFE. Let’s help in making the country safe. Please be at home and maintain social distancing.
