Through this, not only will the user be able to identify the symptoms of corona inside but the app also detects whether the user has come in contact with a corona infected person unknowingly.

Based on this, it advises the user to take the next step. If users are in a ‘high risk’ area, the app advises them to get corona virus test done, call the helpline and visit the nearest health center. For this, the app has been linked to the corona victims database, although it will also gradually build the app’s own database. The app gives the user tips to protect against this pandemic but also informs the government if found infected.

To use it, first, the user has to be registered in the app by mobile number. After this, the app will ask for some personal information from the user, which is optional. Talking about privacy, the government claims that all the important information on the app will be stored in encrypted form and will not be shared with any third party vendor.
