The critic Robert baptize of French cyber-security has highlighted notable drawbacks in the app –
developed by the NITB (National Information Technology Board). He declared his statement by exposing
the information of the app user in Pakistan.
Although this statement ultimately acknowledges a testing system for a safety check, it betrays the
government’s reckless attitude to the security and privacy of people’s details.
The claim made against covid-19 is that the users are facing a privacy problem and have insecure
connections. But the CEO (Shabahat Ali Shah) of NITB has explained that the claim is false there are no
such issues in the app. The Covid-19 mobile app is the most protected and trust able.
Shabahat Ali heads the digital automation, self-steamed business, and eGovernance of Pakistan. He
watches out the matter and shares it on social media with the right facts.
He explained by himself and stated that ”We have now been profitable and striving to raise the
standards of the data that’s being disseminated from our Software.“
He even considers every important stuff or criticism from the user will be valuable.
All the API uses https has been noticed that the consumer’s protection and safety are found in
compliance with the world’s needs.
The reason behind this app was to be aware of people and to avoid the spreading of Covid-19 at that
extreme level. However, the ratio provided in the app related to infected people is not 100 % effective by
the increase or decrease in the ratio day by day, it’s just to spread awareness to those who are unknown
to this disease and don’t have knowledge about the symptoms and treatment. COVID-19 app consent
the self-isolated persons to share their experiences with the other users.
It’s a first step by the federal government for the awareness of the virus and introducing an app named
“COVID-19 Gov. PK”. This mobile app spread awareness and provides people with up to date information
related to the ratio of Covid-19. This app mapped the confirmed cases. The thing is when a person
downloads the app. The map will get users’ information. That was the main problem with the app
publishing the personal data of the user, which was highly insecure for the public of Pakistan.
