How the Covid Tracker app helps us

Daily health check-in
The Covid Tracker app allows you to check-in every day, to let us know if you have any cold, flu or coronavirus symptoms, or if you’re feeling well.

This will help us map the spread of the virus in Ireland. Understanding how the virus is affecting the country will help us to manage and respond to this pandemic.

Contact tracing
The app uses your phone’s technology to make a record of when you are close to other app users. If an app user tests positive for COVID-19, the HSE can ask them for the records on the app. This will help us to contact other people who might have been affected, and give them the advice and help they need.

DCC Storage
Users who have received a paper version of their European Digital Covid Certificate can now digitise it by uploading it into the COVIDTracker App.
This new function allows users to scan the QR code provided on their DCC into the COVIDTracker app for digital storage.

Your data and privacy
The COVID Tracker app will not:

publicly identify anyone with COVID-19
make personal data available to the HSE without your direct consent
use your data for any reason other than contact tracing and anonymously reporting illness levels
Be part of this national effort
Use this app for 1 minute a day to make an important contribution to the fight against coronavirus. Protect yourself, your family, your community and the most vulnerable in society. Encourage everyone you know to download and use the COVID Tracker app where possible.

Protection from Coronavirus. It’s in our hands.

A few days ago, this app started draining my battery. I was out on the Bay when I noticed my phone shut down. Had I gotten into trouble out there, I would have been unable to call for assistance. I couldn't shut off the app so I had to uninstall it. Please let us know when this is fixed. I tried to write a second review but I can only edit my first one. I reinstalled the app after I learned that the problem was fixed. Except now I can't use the Covid check-in feature because I had to re-input my profile yet it won't let me confirm changes to my profile. The button just doesn't work. Aaaargh!

I've just downloaded the app and so far so good. All the features are very simplified to make it easy for all levels of our demographic to use it. One piece of feedback is to change the wording in the daily check in feature. You can choose one of the 2 options: "I'm good, no symptoms" and "I am not feeling well today". What if you have symptoms but are feeling ok? Ex. Having a continuous cough and some sore throat but otherwise feeling great? The app should collect more granular data.

Having to print your covid cert in order to scan it into the app is such poor design. I understand you can scan from screen if you have a second device, but I don't. However, I still maintain that if everyone utilized the app properly then it would be a great help to everyone. I know of people personally who received close contact alerts and as a result it meant they knew to quarantine and take safety precautions that they otherwise wouldn't have known to do.
