New “Check in Scotland” COVID19 app raises privacy concerns

April 13, 2021

The Scottish government has introduced a new check-in app to collect details of people as they visit businesses and other venues, including pubs, restaurants, hair salons and houses of worship. By law, the government specifies that this data must be kept for 21 days, and then must be destroyed or deleted. This is designed to work in concert with the country's health service's "NHS Scotland Test and Protect" initiative to test, trace and isolate from people who have the virus. The concern is that the new check in data will capture intrusive data about individual habits and locations that will be stored in a centralized database.
