Questioned by the media, the General Directorate of Health (DGS) admits that the anti-coronavirus tracking application reduces the autonomy of mobile phones.

“There may be a slightly higher consumption leading to an additional charge, but technical developments have made it possible to limit the additional consumption: approximately 15 minutes less time per daydepending on the phones” Explains the General Directorate of Health (DGS).

Unlike StopCovid, TousAntiCovid can be disabled manually by the user. Therefore, you do not need to leave the app active when you are at home. only reactivate with one click before getting on public transport or going anywhere.

It’s obvious” Advance Micha Benoliel. What do you think of the words of the founder of Nodle? Do you agree that TousAntiCovid reduces the autonomy of your phone?
