About this app

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI), as the central institution of the Federal Government in the field of public health and as the national public health institute, publishes the CovPass app for the German Federal Government. The app allows the digital COVID certificates of the EU to be stored directly on the smartphone. Anyone who uses it can prove their vaccination protection or recovery quickly and securely. The app can also be used to store the EU's digital COVID certificates of other people (for example family members) on the smartphone. Users of the app decide when and to whom they show their information and data.


HOW THE APP WORKS

Evidence of Corona vaccinations and recovery from Corona infection is the central function of the CovPass app. Whenever users prove their Corona status, only the information and data necessary for verification is displayed via QR code.

The QR code provides information about the validity of a vaccination or recovery certificate. For clear identification, the name and date of birth are also displayed during a check.

Corona vaccinations are certified with the EU digital COVID vaccination certificate upon request. The certificate is generated by medical staff after the vaccination. It contains a QR code that can be scanned with the CovPass app. Simply hold the camera of the smartphone over the QR code and all the information of the certificate is loaded onto the smartphone. The current QR code is then displayed on the app's home screen. This can be shown if required.

Recovery from a Corona infection is certified with the EU digital COVID recovery certificate. You can obtain the recovery certificate from your family doctor or local health office after surviving a Corona infection. It contains a QR code that can be scanned with the app. The certificate of recovery is then documented on the smartphone.

EU digital COVID certificates from other people (for example family members) can also be managed on the smartphone.

The data of the EU digital COVID certificate is stored locally on the smartphone. Only the users decide when and to whom they show the information and data.


HOW THE DATA REMAINS SECURE

Data protection is maintained throughout the entire period of use.
- No registration: No registration with an e-mail address is necessary.
- Local data storage: Your complete data is only stored on your smartphone.
- Data minimization: The QR code is displayed with the minimum amount of data agreed in the EU. After the QR code has been checked, only the status of the certificate, the name, and the date of birth are displayed.
- Cryptographic security: The QR code is protected with a strong signature and cannot be forged.

The app works but has one major flaw. It dumps your certificates when you transfer to new device. Data all gone. That's is unnecessary Given that the data is not secure. You can add 50 certs if you like just l added my cert on 3 other phones, there is absolutely no need to dump public cert data. That was a major inconvenience when I went to show a cert for the first time in months to discover the app dropped data in the phone transfer. Fix that!

Covpass interface unfortunately does not allow to show both the QR code and the name at the same time, so I always need to scroll back and forth when showing my proof of vaccination. So easy yet authors still managed to mess it up.

Almost every time you open the app, you do it with the intent of showing it as quickly as possible. Almost every time you open the app, you need to click through 3 dialogs about updates. Edit: updating my review to 1 star. Not only were there 3 screens of notices, there was also some decision to accept or reject. Naturally, I had to click whatever button in 1 second to make it go away. I hope it wasn't an important decision.

Hallo, danke für Ihre Rückmeldung. Wir haben Ihr Feedback an das Team weitergeleitet, das die Hinweise noch einmal diskutieren wird. Automatische Updates können Sie im Menü des Google Play Store deaktivieren. Sie können auch einen Screenshot des QR-Codes oder einen PDF-Export Ihres Zertifikates machen. Viele Grüße, das Team der CovPass-App

What's new

You can now also import certificates from PDF files or photos into the app. PDF files can also contain several certificates.
