The health crisis has forced us to constantly adapt our habits and customs. At the beginning, it was a matter of protecting ourselves as much as possible, isolating ourselves, and going up the chains of contamination. Then phases of partial reopening and new restrictions alternated.
TousAntiCovid helps us through each stage of the pandemic
An Oxford team is using Bluetooth signals rather than geolocation to track Covid-19 contact cases. The French government commissions a digital expert, Aymeric Hoang, and the French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (Inria) to examine possible technologies.
Inria's and Lunabee's teams are beginning to develop a protocol that respects public liberties, involving several French companies including Capgemini, Orange and Dassault Systèmes.
The CNIL issued an opinion on the conditions of implementation in which it considered that "the application can be legally deployed as it appears to be a complementary tool to the manual health survey system".
The StopCovid application, based on volunteerism, privacy and transparency, is officially launched.
The TousAntiCovid application, based on the same protocol to help identify at-risk contacts but with new functionalities, is available to the French.
Derogatory certificates are integrated into the application to simplify moves.
A symbolic step has been taken: more than 10 million French people have registered with TousAntiCovid.
The new feature TousAntiCovid Wallet allows you to store your RT-PCR and antigenic test certificates in the app.
The vaccination certificates can in turn be stored in TousAntiCovid Wallet.
The TousAntiCovid Signal feature accompanies the reopening of cafés and restaurants. It allows you to record your visit to a place and to be warned in case of exposure to the virus.
The health pass comes into force to participate in a large gathering. The presentation of the test or vaccination certificate can be done from TousAntiCovid.
The 20 million registration of the application are reached.
The health pass becomes European: the QR Code on the French health pass can be read anywhere in Europe, directly in the TousAntiCovid application.
Over 30 million people have registered and activated TousAntiCovid.
The TousAntiCovid Wallet becomes 'smart' and allows you to be alerted to the dates of eligibility for the booster dose and expiration of the pass.
Health pass becomes vaccination pass. Launch of the Pass+ tab, which allows certificates to be combined to generate new valid proofs under the pass. The app has been downloaded on over 50 million iOS and Android devices.
