Aarogya Setu App – One Risk
This app for Corona is pretty useful however there is one risk related to its use. The risk is so big that it may infect us with Corona. The risk is that the assessment test is filled by people themselves hence, there is a big chance that the person, for the fear of having the disease, may not answer the questions in the app honestly.
Because of this, the other users of the Aarogya Setu app won’t be able to track the person and may get infected. The reliance of the app on people is its biggest risk.
