@luis_de_sousa Do you have a link to a copy of the law or a reputable analysis?

@luis_de_sousa It's a Covid tracking app? I could understand voluntary usage, but mandatory is problematic. Thank you!

@groff Yes, it is call Stay Away Covid. And yes, it is becoming mandatory.

@luis_de_sousa If I lived there I'd start carrying my phone in a Faraday cage.


Have you considered a Pinephone ? Thanks for the info about their upcoming law.

@luis_de_sousa the government is *considering* that, and will soon realize it.s unconstitutional (as well as impractical and inefficient).
