The Victorian government wants you to download the new COVID app and you should not do it!
The previous app was a total failure where the government stated that the source code was given but in reality core components were hidden from the public not making total transparency as you were alluded to.
The app failed in its core advertised function, that being to detect and communicate with regards to people with alleged infections.
This new app is another ‘failure’ that the government wants you to download or purchase ‘purchase’ (with zero dollars exchanged) where data gathering non related to COVID is the sole purpose.
Apps can and do contain malicious code outside of the advertised function that works to your detriment.
DO NOT download this app!
Another useless app, 'money for mates' job that cost Victorian tax payers how much?
