Apparently, last week so many Android and iPhone users had some disruptions in their phones, the reason for this was because, there was an ongoing installation of COVID-19 tracker in all phones.

For Android Users
Just go to settings and search "Covid-19" you will see the tracker, you will turn "ON" your Bluetooth for it to be functional.

For iPhone Users
Go to settings, privacy, then health, you will also see the tracker. But it isn't yet functional in iPhones, maybe it will be functional soon.

The reason for this is to enable users aware of anybody who is Covid-19 positive around them.

Once a Covid-19 positive person is somewhere around or close to you, the tracker will send a notification to you, informing you of the person.

Also, if you are a Covid-19 positive person, the tracker will also send a notification to others around you to be distant.

What you need to get started
Download an app from your region's government public health authority. To find out if an app is available, check with your government.

Turn on your phone's Bluetooth. Learn how to turn on Bluetooth.

Turn on your phone's Location setting. Learn how to turn on Location. The system uses this to scan for Bluetooth signals. The system does not collect or track your location.

How Exposure Notifications work

When you turn on Exposure Notifications within an app from your region's government public health authority, your phone shares random IDs with other nearby phones that also have turned on the Exposure Notifications System.

Throughout the day, your phone and the phones around you exchange random IDs. When your phone detects a random ID from another device, it records and stores the ID.

If someone reports having COVID-19 and their ID is stored on your phone, the app will notify you of next steps to take.

How the app may determine exposure

The government public health authority determines which factors might indicate exposure.

If the app learns that you've come in contact with someone who reports themselves as having COVID-19, the system shares with the app:

The day the contact happened.
How long the contact lasted.
The Bluetooth signal strength of that contact.

The public health authority app is not allowed to use your phone's location.

The Exposure Notifications System itself does not use your location or share other users’ identities with the app, Google, or Apple.

If you have COVID-19
In the public health app, you may report yourself as having COVID-19.

The app may ask you to share your random IDs. This helps the public health authority to notify others.

The app may then check if your random IDs are stored on other people's devices. It may alert others who came in contact with you. Those other people won't know your identity.

How the Exposure Notification System protects your privacy

You decide if and when to share your data.

All of the Exposure Notification matching happens on your device, which means only you and your app know if you report having COVID-19 or been exposed to someone who has reported having COVID-19. Your identity is never shared with other users, Apple, or Google.

When you download a public health authority app, you can opt in to use Exposure Notifications.

If you have COVID-19, you can choose to share your random IDs with the app.

To help prevent tracking, your phone's random ID changes every 10-20 minutes.
Your phone only stores random IDs from the last 14 days.

The public health authority app is not allowed to use your phone's location or track your location in the background.
Only official public health authority apps can use the system.


NB: Random ID's are automatically deleted after 24-days. But you must turn ON your device location for it track properly.

But before this feature works, you need to Turn "ON" your Bluetooth.

See the images attached to this thread for more clarity.

Thanks.
