Furthermore, it states that privacy and security are central to design tracking technology.

The point here is to track and map contact between people.

"To help with this, Apple and Google will launch a comprehensive solution that includes application programming interface (API) and operating system-level technology to help enable contact tracking.

Next month, an API will be released from both companies connecting Android and iOS devices with apps from public health authorities.

The apps will be available for download from the Android Play Store and iPhone App Store.

Over the coming months, the two will enable broader contact tracking by building functionality into Android and iOS. "This is a more robust solution than an API and will allow more people to join".

"We will publish our work so that everyone can analyze it." The specifications for the work can be seen here.
