After taking away all of your rights and forcing you to stay home for months, the government wouldn’t be especially concerned about asking for your “consent” in order to install this contact tracing app on your phone.
We’re way outside of the “rule of law” these days. The government and everyone else are just doing whatever the heck they want.
They won’t be asking for your consent once the vaccine is ready, either.
Apple and Android users have been left puzzled after a coronavirus tracking software quietly glided on to their mobile phones without consent.
Despite no prior warning, a function called COVID-19 Exposure Logging has been installed to pave the way for a fully-fledged test and trace app.
Users across the world have slammed the ‘sneaky’ and ‘Orwellian’ way in which the feature suddenly appeared.
Critics feared it heralded a slippery slope towards data security breaches – concerns which dogged the beleaguered NHS app, which has now been axed.
And people have also blamed the download for a recent spate of glitches as well as killing the phone’s battery life.
Critics fear this heralds a slippery slope? How about the fact that people’s rights were eliminated during the lockdown with the excuse of the virus? Did these critics think, “yeah, the government has taken away pretty much all of our rights but they wouldn’t dare violate our privacy”?
Both of these things are being done in the name of keeping people safe from a virus that is about as dangerous as the flu. They have created a bulletproof excuse to do whatever they wish, which immediately frames any kind of opposition as something that risks people’s lives.
The function, which is found on the health section of an iPhone’s privacy settings and the Google settings of an Android device, is automatically disabled in countries without contact-tracing apps, such as Britain.
The feature was built in to phones on May 20, however, because nobody was told, users are only now discovering the function.
It makes clear it will allow a future app to harness in-built Bluetooth technology and alert the owner if they have been in proximity with someone infected.
Many are up in arms over the lack of information and even went as far as to brand it a violation of trust.
In countries which have an app, such as Germany, users are claiming it is rapidly sapping their battery life – a complaint with the NHS app, which has now been scrapped.
When people bought their phones, they thought they were buying something they owned and controlled, not a surveillance device.
But nothing is what it seems anymore.
Everything is some kind of trick.
