No Security Breach In Aarogya Setu App, Clarifies Govt

New Delhi: The government on Wednesday said there has been no data or security breach in Aarogya Setu. The clarification came after a French hacker and cybersecurity expert Elliot Alderson had claimed on Tuesday that “a security issue has been found” in the app and that “privacy of 90 million Indians is at stake”.

The app is the government’s mobile application for contact tracing and disseminating medical advisories to users in order to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Dismissing the claims, the government said “no personal information of any user has been proven to be at risk by this ethical hacker”.

“We are continuously testing and upgrading our systems. Team Aarogya Setu assures everyone that no data or security breach has been identified,” the government said through the app’s Twitter handle.
