Short Update: Liberties network launches campaign to analyse impact of COVID-19 tracing apps in 9 EU countries

FT Admin - June 8, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Surveillance

Members of Liberties network in nine EU countries - Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden - have filed Freedom of Information requests to their national authorities regarding the new contact-tracing, symptom-tracking and quarantine-enforcing applications introduced to control the spread of COVID-19. The information obtained from the requests will be used to collect information about these applications and compare the different approaches across Europe. 

The aim of the research is to avoid that the state authorities or private companies process more personal data than is necessary to protect the public from the COVID-19 virus. The aim is also to push for minimisation of the risk of data leakage and other privacy breaches.
