The NHS COVID-19 app is no longer in use and the Isle of Wight trial has now ended. This is archived information from 18 June 2020. If you still have the app, please uninstall it.

The app will only ever be used for NHS care, public health management, or evaluation and research. Use of the app is voluntary. If we make changes to the app, we’ll explain why those changes were made.

In future versions of the app, you’ll be able to choose if you want to provide the NHS with extra information about yourself, including where you have been. This information will play an important role in protecting the health of others and getting the country back to normal in a controlled way, as restrictions are relaxed.

We’ll always comply with the law around the use of data, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018.
