Compare public COVID data with your own private location history where available
PathCheck SafePlaces is the official app published by PathCheck Foundation to aid in COVID-19 exposure notification and contract tracing in the following jurisdictions: Haiti, Guam, Puerto Rico, and Teton County, Wyoming.
PathCheck (formerly COVID Safe Paths) can privately save the places you visit and store them on your phone. Subscribe to Healthcare Authorities in your area for information about COVID-19 near you, where available.
Receive alerts from your local Healthcare Authority with information about potential exposure to COVID-19.
We are a global movement to develop free, open-source, privacy-by-design tools for residents, public health officials, and larger communities.
The PathCheck program has spun out of initial privacy-first research conducted by MIT and TripleBlind, into a newly created non-profit called PathCheck Foundation, established with the initial purpose of supporting global rollout of the PathCheck app and associated tools for contact tracers and healthcare authorities.
The goal of PathCheck is to help enable the reemergence and re-opening of economies and communities. Through global partnerships, we are prepared to support public health officials everywhere in the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.
• You can now delete your Location History.
• We think you'll find the calendar interface is a bit more clear.
• We've made improvements to the Exposure Notifications (ENs).
Ratings and Reviews
Great concept and mission, but needs wider adoption to work
I love how the app is designed with privacy in mind and doesn’t track your location using GPS tech.
But the app needs more users for us to receive updates on whether someone we’ve been near is actively exhibiting COVID19 symptoms or not.
Excellent privacy 1st approach
Full disclosure: I am part of the team working on this app. I think that makes me more knowledgeable not biased. I saw how the sausage was made and I believe in it. This app is from a non-profit foundation trying to help the world find a path forward. The app is solid but only one piece of the puzzle; you need your local Public Healthcare Authority to deploy their services with the app so people know what to do if they test positive. I like that the location data is stored on my phone and no one can see it but me unless I choose to share it. I gave 4 instead of 5 stars because the Public Health Authority in my state has not adopted this solution so I cannot get full functionality.
Thank you for this app. I was looking for many places where I could track my potential cross paths with a c-vid positive person. And I like that this app actually does care about my privacy and do not download my data.
