The government said, the Arogya Setu app is completely safe.
The government has said that companies should not only pre-install, but also ensure that the user registers and sets it before using the phone.
To implement this decision, the Indian government is preparing to appoint nodal agencies, which will keep in touch with smartphone companies and see that the option to skip along with the app installed in all new devices is denied. With this, the Arogya Setu app will be given as an inbuilt feature in all new smartphones sold in India.

The government has not yet announced any possible solution to enable contact tracing on feature phones, which is still a major part of India’s mobile phones.
For information, let us know that since Arogya Setu App has been launched, it has been installed 7.5 crore times across the country on Google Play Store alone. With the government’s plan to make the Arogya Setu Contact Tracing App mandatory, its numbers may see a rapid increase in the coming days.
