    Got it installed, don't care if the govt know where I go.

    If People are worried about that sort of thing they better leave their smart phones at home when they go out as that tracks you everywhere, can tell you when and where you went, how long it took and various other information. Google and apple can pin point your location to within about 3 mtrs.

    Want an example - I zoomed out but zooming in gives many details, heres where I went a few weeks back during the day.

    I have it on my mobile and use it wherever I enter a business/premises that is displaying the official NZ COVID Tracer poster.

    As I have never done anyhting to be ashamed of, nor have a criminal record, I have NO objection to the Government or Police knowing of my travels.

    Same as most above..... It is to protect us and all other folk. Maybe not the best idea but at this point it's all we've got.

    Installed it and actively use it, included recording manual entries. The app may not be perfect, but is still undergoing improvement and is an huge help to Public Health contact tracers.

    Have it and used it when you guys up north went up a level, but down here in the Mainland its pretty much everything back to normal, Christchurch might be different but nobody in their right mind would choose to enter a large city.

    Heh....my phone, on occasion I want to look at gaspy, comes up and says you are so undercover we can't find you and I type in my location manually.
    Some don't have GPS, Google or whatever on their phones.

    And some, like Husband has no smartphone at all and cannot install apps. My mum doesn't have any cellphone.
    So apps....not much use for them.
