MIT Test downgrades Aarogya Setu app gets 1 out of 5 stars


MIT Technology Review, a magazine owned by the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in an in-house review, downgraded Aarogya Setu app's rating to one star out of five. Researchers had earlier given it 2 out of 5


The app lost more points on the parameters of “data minimisation” which means the app is collecting more data than needed for the app to work.

The app’s privacy policy states that only contact information, location and self-assessment data will be collected by National Informatics Centre (NIC), who will also be responsible for deleting the data after a reasonable period of time.
