Re: Official NHS Track and Trace App

The app is only as useful as the owner of the phone or device.
its down to the user to be honest and input test results into the app. It can also be switched off so someone may have it and walk amongst you and be still spreading it.
As its not compulsory and totally down to the user its almost useless. I have it and i am genuine with it, but if im honest only because ive been asked to have it to lead by example to other staff. I cant ask my staff to have it if im not willing. But i know one member downloaded it then blocks its use.

That shows what percentage a certain app or software is using your phone battery that is correct. Inevitably, it is going to use battery. but this only shows at what percentage against other apps and software. It has not used 72% of you battery only total used percentage. so if you happened to use google maps and made a few phone calls then the percentage would be lower. vice versa. if the only thing to run on your phone was T&T then it would say 100% which it wont as software also is included..
the app on my phone is only 4% of use as i use different apps all day long. and make alot of calls etc on it.

I thought the same as you, as with everything user digression is required and yes easy to not input results or just turn it off so not really failsafe.

Re: Official NHS Track and Trace App

So I went into Nero`s at 10:15 on saturday "have you scanned your phone?" "no I don`t have app" "can you write down phone number and name"
"sure" So an hour later after I have left a covid positive person arrives, scans app and I get told to isolate!!!!!! -Shock.png-

Re: Official NHS Track and Trace App

I used it at the barbers for the first time. it's fatally flawed already.

Checked in with a QR code as I was asked to. Only then did I realise it kept me checked in until midnight? WHY? i didn't go anywhere else barring home. couldn't log out. So anyone that day tests positive, I have to isolate. Yet I was first in the barbers and left with no one else there. I should've been able to log out when I left.

I've disabled the app for now, it's broken and not fit for purpose, well in my opinion

I think this has been sorted in the recent update, not sure though as I haven't scanned in anywhere since updating my app.

It doesn't work like that, never did. So you check in to the barber at say 9am and leave at 10am. Someone positive checks in at 11am and leaves at 12 noon. Your device have never been in contact with the positive persons device so no alert. Had you both been in there, within a couple of meters for a period of time (i.e. the 2 devices correlate) the alert could and likely would be issued. Just because you're not logged out doesn't mean you're in, the 2 devices have to have been in proximity for a period of time.

In that case if you don`t have the App what`s the point of leaving your name and phone number? by the way this is only Nero`s that ask for it -Hah.png-

Re: Official NHS Track and Trace App

In most cases those that ask you to leave your contact details such as my barbers have no QR code.
If the business finds out a positive case has entered they are able to contact you directly with that information. It then give you the opportunity to be aware or test if necessary.
Really it’s a great responsible step from small independent businesses to protect the local community.
What you personally choose to do if you are called is your own moral dilemma.

Re: Official NHS Track and Trace App

Jeez really! Too many people are obsessed with phones or technology of any sort. I'm glad I'm old enough to know I don't need the latest game/app/tablet/satnav. Whatever.

Re: Official NHS Track and Trace App

I have Removed the app. nonsense! not fit for purpose. Far to many variables and only a minute percentage of the population actually have it. its just not workable.
