TAC Verif - French Government
Verification application for French and European health certificates (EU-DCC: Digital Covid Certificate)

OPERATION - The TAC Verif application allows you to carry out health certificate checks in totally offline mode. No connection to the internet or to a server is necessary to verify a health certificate. On the other hand, the application must regularly be reconnected to the Internet (GSM / WiFi network), otherwise it will stop working after having alerted its user to the fact that regular and punctual synchronization is essential.
The “compulsory” (punctual) synchronization frequency is a parameter that changes according to needs. The user will be notified that they have a period of time left in days/hours before the application stops working. To find out when the last synchronization took place between TAC Verif and the synchronization server, go to the settings section of the parameters.
The mandatory (and one-off) nature of this synchronization makes it possible to check that the application is up-to-date and has the correct version of each health certificate for EU-DCCs.
Data exchanges between the TAC Verif mobile application and the synchronization server are therefore occasionally necessary. These data exchanges do not concern the health certificates which are verified (no personal data is exchanged or stored during the verification of a certificate), they are used to guarantee the authenticity of the verified certificates.

MANAGEMENT OF PERSONAL DATA – Decree No. 2022-1097 of July 30, 2022 relating to monitoring and health security measures maintained in the fight against Covid-19 provides that it is strictly forbidden to keep any information relating to the control a health certificate. Whether it is the result of the verification of a certificate or data such as surname, first name, date of birth of the bearer of the certificate, this data is considered personal and sensitive (medical data), and does not must not be manipulated in any form whatsoever, by the controller of the health certificate, the only "manipulation" is that carried out by the mobile application which displays a result for 30 seconds, a result which must in no case be kept (not screenshot, printing, etc.)
