1/ Force people to install a mobile app doesn’t make any sense. When you publish an app, the main metric you should look at is the number of people who are using your app, not the number of downloads.

You want to create a community, a group of people who regularly use your app.
2/ If you app is good enough, people will use your app everyday. The next metric you will look at is the retention. You want the users to come back to your app everyday during a long time (forever if possible). For that, your app need to be really useful (Waze, WhatsApp, ...)
3/ If your app has some in app purchases, your “addicted users” are the target. You want them to improve their everyday experience by buying this small pack at only 4.99€.

Brother in law found #Covid_19 positive in #Gurugram after he got in contact with his colleague at #punjabnationalbank. Here's his journey of trauma of testing & isolation in Gurgaon.
Step1: called all govt. helplines, #AarogyaSetu helplines, and update record on govt. Apps
But no communication by any govt. Department for next 2 days.
Step 2- Finally after waiting for 2 days for any communication decided to go a private hospital for testing.
#coronavirus test charges Rs. 4,900/- ( wondering how will any little income group person will get tested)
Step 3- Test result came and he was declared #Covid19 Positive. Entire family is worried.
Step 4- again updated record on #AarogyaSetuApp and called all govt. Helplines for treatment, guidance... Tada ... No response

Step 4: After over 50 calls and wait for 1 day, finally one

1/ Go through this tweets thread👇(especially don’t miss 11/ in this thread) to understand how persons like @fs0c131y are running #propaganda against our govt apps.
It will explain how for famous govt apps claims of #hacking or security issues are made while hiding the #reality
2/ First thing is you have to look like a pro hacker like those you see in movies or web series
—> yes you thought it right! You can even use name of a famous fictional character from web series or movies say #ElliotAlderson in #MrRobot web series. How cool that is! Isn’t it?🤔
3/ To look more cool 😎 hacker
—> You need some fancy terminal and fancy font. Powerline font and Oh-my-zsh with the Agnoster theme would be cool.
—> use curl for making requests to app server (you can even avoid posting the response in case you did not get desired response 😂)

Should we release publicly a mod of #AarogyaSetu?
It's clearly a complicated question and not a definitive yes on my side. This is why I created this poll
Ethically, this question is extremely interesting

A mobile application that send your GPS coordinates regurlaly to a server owned by a government is a surveillance system.

#AarogyaSetu is a surveillance system
Do you have to worry?

When a government is forcing people to install an app, it's probably the good moment to be worry
"It's not an issue, it's a feature of the app" 🤪

Yes, by design, #AarogyaSetu is a surveillance system. They don't care about the user privacy. But, in theory, give the ability to know if your neighboor is sick is not a feature of the app.
