Google and Apple: Exposure Notifications

Google and Apple jointly created the Exposure Notifications System out of a shared sense of responsibility to help governments and our global community fight the COVID-19 pandemic through contact tracing. 

Public health authorities around the world are building apps that use the Exposure Notifications System to help their contact tracing efforts. For example, the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) has developed the COVID Alert PA mobile app. 

  • You control whether you receive Exposure Notifications
  • The Exposure Notifications System doesn’t track your location
  • Neither Google, Apple, nor other users can see your identity
  • Only public health authorities can use this system
