Aarogya Setu now lets you delete your account: All you need to know.

It would not be wrong to say that Aarogya Setu App, launched by PM Narendra Modi, is one of the most popular apps in the world. It has already crossed over 12 crore downloads since its launch in April this year after COVID-19 pandemic gripped our nation. 

Now, the government app has introduced a new feature which enables users to assess their risk level based on their BT or Bluetooth contacts. The same was revealed in a series of tweets made via the government’s Aarogya Setu handle. If you are wondering what does that mean, let us tell you that with the new feature, the app will now show users a list of people with whom they have been in close proximity. Aarogya Setu will track only the users which are close enough to establish a Bluetooth connection. While there may be some that the user might have come in close contact with, others can be those contacts that the user may have had no physical contact with at all. 

“This will enable you to assess your risk. Some BT contacts can be for short durations during travel, some can be when you have Masks on without any physical contact. Always important to take necessary precautions and monitor your symptoms,” government’s Aarogya Setu handle wrote.

The new feature will be helpful for users to assess their status with respect to the people that they have been in close contact with by giving requisite permissions to the app. The list will include the contacts who have been tested positive for COVID-19, those who are at moderate risk of getting the virus and those who are healthy.

Apart from the aforementioned feature, Aarogya Setu App has launched another second major change which will help you delete your account on a permanent basis. With the ‘Delete My Account’ option, the user can delete his/her account and erase all the app data from their phones. However, you cannot immediately delete your information stored in the government server as it will remain there for 30 days.

The new update of Aarogya Setu App has been rolled out onto its Android version and it will soon be available in the iOS version of the App.
