About this app

COVID Certificate is the official app for storing and presenting Swiss COVID certificates. It is developed by the Federal Office of Information Technology, Systems and Telecommunication FOITT on behalf of the Federal Office of Public Health.

In Switzerland, people who have been vaccinated, or who have tested negative or recovered from COVID can apply for a COVID certificate.

COVID certificates are issued in hard copy or electronic format serve as proof of:
1. Vaccination against COVID-19
2. Recovery from Sars-CoV-2 infection
3. A negative result following Sars-CoV-2 test analysis

How the app works
When the app is first launched after installation on the mobile device, a brief introduction provides information on how to use it and how to scan a hard-copy COVID certificate.

In the app, the required COVID certificate can be selected, and presented if desired. The app shows the time of your vaccination or test and how long ago you had the vaccination or test. All data contained in a certificate's QR code can also be displayed.

It is possible to store several COVID certificates in the app, e.g. for family members, or several COVID test certificates.

Use of the COVID Certificate app is voluntary and free of charge.

Data protection is a top priority
COVID certificate data is stored solely on the mobile device. COVID certificates are protected by a digital seal (signature) and are thus forgery-proof.

COVID certificates are generated by the FOITT, but are not stored in a central system. That is why it is not possible to obtain a copy of an issued certificate.

The use of the app is limited to Switzerland and is subject to Swiss law.

Works good. Still room to improve I guess further compatibility with certificates from other countries is desirable, but probably an impossible task, because it won't be possible to validate them. My main suggestions: a language setting for the export of certificate. It creates them in German by default (with English text below the German text). Not possible to put in French or Italian. Thanks. Hopefully I can uninstall it soon when this is over

Does not work well, when you add code which is connected to the test you just made, even though it says it will be added automatically, it is not true, it does not work, only email and doing it manually. Overall a luggy app with way too much personal info, i would prefer it to be light version all the time, because i dont want every waiter to know my passport number and everything, they arent an authority why i have to share my most personal and important information with random people. Hate it

Interface is nice and user friendly. However I'm having the same issue as nearly all the other reviewers here in that I get an error message when trying to upload a pdf document since I received my vaccine shots in two different cantons. Defeats the purpose of the app, unfortunately.
