Aarogya Setu is an official Indian coronavirus warning Android app. It was issued by the government to help fight against the pandemic.
The main function of this utility is to warn users about possible exposures to the virus. It was developed by the Indian Department of Health. Having the application is mandatory for some groups of citizens and residents.
The functionality of Aarogya Setu is similar to many other official coronavirus apps like COVID Alert NY. A simple minimalistic interface makes it accessible to most people. After installing this tool, users just have to switch on both Bluetooth and GPS on their devices. Turning on location sharing is necessary as well.
When these steps are completed, the application starts to collect the location data of the device. Information about persons with positive test results for coronavirus is stored in the system. In the case of possible exposure, the utility will warn the user.
However, alerts do not come in realtime. Sometimes there is a few hours delay. These notifications are accompanied by convenient instructions. They let users know how to isolate themselves and what to do if symptoms develop.
