Guam COVID Alert App

Use your phone to fight COVID-19!
After you download GUAM COVID ALERT on your iPhone or Android, follow the app instructions to turn on your Exposure Notifications. This allows you to be notified if you’ve likely been exposed.
How It Works
GUAM COVID ALERT uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to quickly notify users who have likely been exposed so you can reduce the risk of infection for your friends and family and help Guam stop the spread.
Once you opt-in to the notification system, the Exposure Notifications System will generate a privacy-preserving “random key” for your device. To help ensure these privacy-preserving “random keys” can’t be used to identify you or your location, they change every 10–20 minutes.
Your phone and the phones around you will work in the background, without draining your battery or data, to exchange these privacy–preserving random keys via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. This is a passive process that begins once you opt–in and functions without the app open.
On a daily basis, your phone downloads a list of all the random keys associated with positive COVID-19 cases and checks them against the list of random keys it has encountered in the last 14 days.
If there’s a match, the app will notify you with further instructions from your public health authority on how to keep you and the people around you safe.
