Download the app and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Iceland.
Rakning C-19 is the official digital contact tracing app for Iceland. By using Rakning C-19 we can all help preventing the spread of COVID-19 . The app uses COVID-19 Exposure Notification system developed by Apple and Google.
Once you have downloaded and started using Rakning C-19, your phone will start to share and receive random Bluetooth IDs with other phones with the app. The app will send you notification if you have been in close contact with another app user that has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Then you can follow instructions in the app on what you should do. No one can see your identity nor your location. You can’t see the identity of those you may have been in close contact with. If you share that you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, other app users cannot see your identity.
The app does not use or register any location data.
Rakning C-19 is developed by the Directorate of health in Iceland. Read more about the app on https://www.covid.is/app/is
Better onboarding experience, updated contact tracing parameters and refreshed user interface.
Ratings and Reviews
I encountered the same problem of it not allowing enabling of contact tracing on my device. So I deleted the app, reinstalled, and it let me reregister, adding the things it wouldn’t allow 1 hour ago. A lot more trouble than it’s worth given Iceland’s low case rate. If tourism picks up, and there’s still mandatory testing of all vaccinated arriving passengers and 4-24 hour hotel quarantine, it would be important to make this far easier than it was today.
The app has some excellent graphics and explainers, but breaks as soon as I:
• Try to set it up without an internet connection
• Try to set it up outside of Iceland
• Try to set it up without a phone number
It also breaks on older iPhones (I have a 6S) although this has been now fixed. Once broken, it will never work again, even in Iceland. The fix is simple, delete and reinstall.
Can’t register phone from USA
