Revealed: Government's coronavirus tracing app facing questions on cyber security and privacy
Health officials are to launch pilot version of app on Isle of Wight, urging all Britons to sign up when it becomes national

The Government’s coronavirus tracing app will start rolling out on the Isle of Wight on Tuesday, as a row erupted over whether it has passed key cyber security and privacy tests.

Health and council staff on the island will be able to download the app from Tuesday, ahead of the rest of the island’s residents from Thursday, as part of efforts to test Government’s test-and-trace strategy to contain the virus after lockdown.

However, the rollout was overshadowed as it emerged on Monday that the product has reportedly failed all the standards which would allow it to be included in the NHS’s own app library.
