Norwegian expert panel recommends changes to Smittestopp coronavirus app

Thursday 21 May 2020 | 13:26 CET | News

Among other things, they have recommended the removal of unnecessary data, such as by cutting retention time. They also recommend considering a more distributed service and splitting the app into tracking and analysis, so that users can choose to be involved in only one of those goals.
