Beginning in April 2022, the gradual spread of the COVID-19 epidemic in Taiwan has made the previously promoted Taiwanese social distancing app even more important. The command center also stated that if the number of installations of the service reaches more than 13 million (accounting for 60% of the population), it will consider canceling the joint system. The Taiwanese social distancing app uses the Contact Tracking technology jointly launched by Apple,
Google and the Bluetooth Alliance, uses Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth Low Energy) transmission, and is used with apps developed by local Special Database government agencies. Through the Bluetooth proximity detection and data broadcasting features, the contact information of the de-personalized tag can be recorded, and the Bluetooth information within about 10 meters can be recorded. Taiwan Social Distancing App Download: Google Play: Portal App Store: Portal No need to worry about power consumption for a long time, de-identified labels to protect privacy There are two technical issues that people are most concerned about, the first is the power consumption of the mobile phone, and the second is the privacy issue. In terms of power consumption, Taiwan's social distancing app uses Bluetooth low energy technology.
In an extreme example, some devices can be used for months to years as long as a button battery is installed. Although it is difficult for us to quantify the power consumption of a single app, it has never appeared on the power consumption list of mobile phones since we used this app last year, which means that the power consumption is really negligible. In addition, as long as you agree to the app's usage rights, even if you turn off the Bluetooth function, the app will still actively periodically wake up the Bluetooth for data exchange, and then put the Bluetooth to sleep after completion. However, in order to track the correctness, it is recommended to keep Bluetooth turned on.
