Government removing documents forcing to purchase app instead
People should comprehend that apps can (and many do) contain ‘malicious’ code which can be detrimental to the user’s (and their contacts) privacy and security.
With regards to the so called novel coronavirus, the mainstream media has demonised people who, for whatever reasons, do not wish to download the Australian Government’s COVID-19 app.
They coined the term “anti-appers” with the understating that it is analogous to “anti-vaxxers” also stating that it is as dangerous, where the claim is erroneous.
Since the advent of the novel coronavirus many have referred to historical documentation regarding viruses, death statistics and how government deals with for example the flu, etc, where the bulk of the information is in a document format called a pdf (Portable Document Format) file, which is totally independent of any mobile or personal computer platform.
So, if one does not download the (currently non disclosed source code) government COVID app, then they’ll extract the information they require another way.
They will remove the pdf files you seek, where the ONLY way to obtain the information, is to ‘purchase*’ the app, once again a closed source program, NOT open to public scrutiny, as it should be.
Remember the saying “Nothing to hide, nothing to fear”?
So, show ‘us’ the source code to the apps that you want us to purchase.
After all WE (the taxpayers) paid for those apps where we have EVERY right to know what the app is doing to OUR hardware.
'Forcing' persons to purchase (government) apps is part of the nanny state agenda.
* Purchase – The purchase of an app may be gratis, but you DO pay for it in other ways, where mostly you provide information to the app store and the developer which is used to generate profit for both entities.
