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 NHS COVID-19 app is entirely voluntary and people have the choice of whether or not to download the app. You can uninstall and delete the NHS COVID-19 app whenever you like. At any level of uptake, the app will support the wider NHS Test and Trace programme, which is designed to stop the spread of the virus.
Please note, the NHS COVID-19 app is not pushed automatically to smartphones. However, if you share an Apple or Google ID it is possible that the App is installed on your smartphone because a family member has installed it on another smartphone. For more information on this topic please see below:
