Rakning C-19 is an official app from the Icelandic Government to help mitigate the Covid-19 pandemic in Iceland. The app collects the GNSS (GPS) location of the phone and stores locally on the device. If the phone owner is diagnosed with the Covid-19 disease he is asked by the Directorate of Health to share the location data for contact tracing in order to identify individuals that might need to go into quarantine.
