spreadit is a complete, open-source, contact tracing solution that is designed to guarantee both your privacy and your data security.
Use spreadit to scan a Location-QR with the spreadit logo. On a bus, at a store, anywhere you see one. Get notified when a COVID-19 infected user was at the same place.
If you choose to scan your COVID-19 Test-QR, spreadit will notify you with the official results as soon as they are available.
Your data is completely anonymised and securely communicated.
spreadit is built to support the Federal Office of Public Health efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 through crowdsourced, community-driven unknown contact tracing in what we call unsafe locations.
We strongly believe that when the effort to contain the virus is solidary, collective, and crowdsourced between us all, there is no need for continuous, passive tracking of the population.
spreadit uses QR codes to record the instances where you visit unsafe locations. These records are encrypted and securely trasmitted to a backend system.
spreadit's functionality will be suspended after the pandemic subsides.
