The Corona-Warn-App helps us to determine whether we have had any contact with an infected person which could result in a risk of catching the virus. This way, we can interrupt chains of infection more quickly. The app is a service by the Federal Government. Download and use of the app are entirely voluntary. It is available as a free download in the App Store and from Google Play.
The Corona-Warn-App can "support us and help to keep us safe", doing its bit to break chains of infection, stresses Chancellor Angela Merkel in her latest podcast. Since Tuesday, the Corona-Warn-App has been available to download free of charge from the App-Store and Google-Play-Store. "The more people who use the app, the greater the benefits," the Chancellor points out.
The Corona-Warn-App helps to quickly disrupt chains of infection. It turns your smartphone into a warning system. The app informs us if we have had contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19. It protects us and others around us, as well as our privacy.
