COVIDSafe app & digital rights

Tuesday, 26 May 2020 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm
COVIDSafe app

This evening we are joined by Samantha Floreani, Campaigns Officer at Digital Rights Watch to discuss the Australian government’s COVIDSafe contact tracing app, released on 26 April. One month in and with just one instance of the app being used, there is need to reflect on the privacy concerns and human rights implications raised by the app’s operation. We will also be discussing more rights-focussed decentralised design alternatives.
