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.

Your device has a name that is visible when you connect to other devices via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi networks. The default name of your device will normally be the name of your model e.g., iPhone or Galaxy Tab S3

If you have changed your device name from the default we recommend that you update it so that it does not include personal information. You can update your device name from your settings. 

This be done by following the below steps (please note that precise steps can differ slightly depending on device):

  • Apple iOS: Settings -> General -> About -> Name 
  • Android:Settings -> About device -> Device Name
