When the corona-COVID-19 apps are gonna be rolled out, what we need now is an app like LightBlue
(to save on our Bluetooth android battery consumption) and a reasonable Bluetooth Proxy to protect against snooping,
so the apps can function as foreseen, but not beyond that.
These apps should not "function creepily" being abused for total surveillance purposes by "the forces that be".

One should realize  some of the Bluetooth patents now used, were already acquired and patented by facebook Inc. in 2016.
Did they already foresee this was coming our and their way?  :-X

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Sorry but I wouldn't touch them with a long stick, we already have enough with social distancing, here I would go a step further social (networking) exclusion.

I'm a trusting sort NOT.

US consumers report $12M in COVID-19 scam losses since January
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/us-consumers-report-12m-in-covid-19-scam-losses-since-january/
Most likely, the losses would have been the same with out COVID-19 but would have been a different cam topic.
There's a sucker born every minute and a scam artist willing to take these suckers for a ride.
