Apple will only accept apps that certify vaccination from health authorities


Once again the criticized control that Apple exerts on the apps published in its App Store ensures the safety of people. Too bad this time this control will not do any good.

Apple will be dedicated to controlling where the apps that certify that you are vaccinated against Covid-19 come from, and It will only allow those created by health authorities, to avoid fraud. The pity is that if someone wants to pretend to be vaccinated without being vaccinated, they will only need an Android smartphone, where they will surely find an application to commit the deception.

Vaccination against COVID-19 has begun in several countries around the world, and they have already begun to emerge some applications that allow users to certify that they have been vaccinated just showing his iPhone.

Apple has detected it and does not want its devices to be tools of fraud, in an issue as important as the fight against COVID-19. Think about controlling where the applications that certify that you are vaccinated come from, and will only allow in its App Store those that come from a health authority. Bravo.

The company shipped yesterday a circular to all application developers for Apple devices explaining this new control. Only applications that certify the COVID-19 vaccination of developers that work with entities recognized by the public health authorities.

These entities are manufacturers of approved test kits, laboratories that perform COVID-19 analysis, or health care providers, such as state health systems or private health mutuals.

One of the first applications that certify the COVID-19 vaccination has been presented Los Angeles County in collaboration with startup Healthvana. This app allows its users to add the COVID-19 vaccination certificate to Apple Wallet.

As I said at the beginning, the pity is that the only thing someone who wants to pretend to be vaccinated without being vaccinated will need is a smartphone Android. With it you will have it much easier to achieve your purpose.
