Alaska COVID ENX (also known as Alaska COVID Exposure Notifications) is a free tool that works on smartphones to alert users if they may have been exposed to COVID-19 without sharing any personal information. It is completely private and doesn’t know who you are or track where you go.
How does it work?
Alaska COVID ENX is an innovative, collaborative system developed by Apple and Google
that uses the Bluetooth technology on smartphones to exchange anonymous “pings” between
users. If an individual later tests positive for COVID-19, Alaska COVID ENX automatically
and anonymously notifies the other pinged users of their possible exposure. This empowers
Alaskans to act quickly if they come into contact with an individual who tested positive
for the virus, slowing down the spread of the virus in the community.
The system is anonymous and is opt-in. No locations are tracked. It doesn’t know your name and your identity will never be revealed to anyone. The service will never collect, transmit or store any of your personal information.
