Smittestopp is an application for Android that gives you the ability to get warnings about contacts with people who are sick with coronavirus.
This app is developed by Folkehelseinstituttet. It is Norwegian Institute of Public Health, so this is the official utility for stopping the pandemic of COVID 19 in that country.
There are a lot of analogues of this application all over the world that share the same functionality. For example, in India people use Aarogya Setu for the purpose of fighting with the coronavirus.
You need to provide the app with access to the current location of your mobile device. Moreover, you have to let it use Bluetooth in order to work properly.
Smittestopp notifies you when a person who has tested positive to COVID 19 is nearby. That allows you to take measures immediately and get medical help if needed.
Moreover, you have the opportunity to share the result of your test and warn other people if it is positive. It is completely anonymous. Nobody will know your name, only the fact of the exposure.
