I just heard that big brother is tracking this Covid-19 bullshit through our phones now. Turn it off as soon as you read this.

On an iPhone:
Go to settings -> Privacy -> Health -> Covid1-19 Exposure Logging -> OFF

Keep checking it as they say they are adding research data and make sure you turn everything OFF.

Source? And who's doing it? The federal government (CDC, NIH) under Trump's direction and authority? The state?

Microsoft added a Covid-19 tracker in their latest Windows 10 update for PC's and Laptops too.
Click the "search" tab. You'll know if you have it.

SOB!!!!!🤬🤬🤬🤬 It's on mine! Fuck Android too!! LOL

What bugs me is this is my device not theirs I own it, they shouldn't be allowed to put that on without my permission.
Go out and hit the back with a hammer really, really hard. There will be a black chip inside you have to remove, then the Covid tracker won’t work any more. Super easy.

How in the hell can they deveolp this tech across all 3 major OS's and have it secretly installed on MILLIONS of devices without anyone knowing within about 4 months?

Honestly, this shit is getting REALLY fishy and this software would fit in PERFECTLY with the Gates' plan of microchipping everyone.

ok so even if you have it on how the hell do they know that the guy walking by you has had it. Unless the County Health department exposed your personal health information and that's against the law. I thought Obama got all that passed with HIPPA and ACA laws. So if you do get Covid just don't give them your phone number as I see it.

HIPPA has been around for 20 years, long before Obama.

Not a thing you can do about it you were probably already exposed and don't know it not everyone gets sick or just minor all bullshit!!! Unless of course you have a preexisting condition then even the common cold can turn into pneumonia and kill fuck all these sheep in this country!

And yes I have an inside source and hear it with my own ears!!!

I’m not sure that it even matters anymore, we as a society have given the government and private industry more information about ourselves than we ever should have. 🤷😞

Does your "inside source" think that if you have been exposed to or have Covid you should at least know about it so you can stay home so you don't spread it to others / family ?

the internet.....the world wide web. The worse invention in mankind. We did just fine before it. My parents, myself, no issues with living my life 30 years ago, less than that actually.
What is scary is how quickly its all changed. Imagine 40 years from now

How did they do it?

They didn't! LoL

This was brought up a few weeks ago, and me of ALL people, had to set all the Koolaid drinkers straight.

Its a SETTING. If you don't have the APP to take advantage of the SETTING, the setting does absolutely nothing.

I'll say the same thing I said last time...

You guys are a bunch of paranoid fucks!


Now, go throw away your stupid iPhones, before you embarras yourselves again!!!

The latest Iphone update said something about COVID tracking in the notes so I turned off automatic updates. No thanks.... Just checked again and it no longer says it. Interesting.

Naw...

I'm going to be 63 in a few weeks, and I Still know which way is up!

Its not an age thing, it's an Apple flavored Kool Aid thing. Those folks will believe pretty much any ol thing they are told.

Look! A squirrel! 😁

It is on Android phone you just have to access it through Google settings in your Android settings but it appears as it notifies you when you're near a covid-19 teen person via Bluetooth

I don't live in fear if you're that worried stay home if I someone wants me to wear a mask I just won't go or hangout with people in that fear zone IMO totally unnecessary and the factual numbers prove it.

On that note I hope you stay well I wish no ill will unless of course your name is Clinton. 😁

It is on my phone. I hate auto updates. THe wife saw it on my phone and said oh yeah I need that. SMH. Think about this. The maps and apps typically is not be able to distinguish 3D only 2D. What I am saying is that when you are on a freeway with multiple levels it does not know which one that you are on. I can see my wife with medical conditions and this app notifying if she is in contact with a infected person she will shit a loag for week until she does not start feeling bad. For me this is not a good thing. Thanks for posting it up!!!!

Well a lot of people aren’t staying home. I get quite a few e mails every week where someone on a job site that we are on has tested positive. Jobs get shut down and everyone has to go home until it’s ok to go back. Those are factual numbers. 😷😀

I don’t see any factual numbers in your post, but wouldn’t they just get sent home to get tested and come back almost immediately? That’s what we did when someone at our warehouse tested positive....
