Apparently, the reason the NHS contact tracing app fell over on my fairphone was because some e users got very concerned about their ~privacy~ so the solution that e came up with was to silently kill the app I was relying on.
My best friend has cancer and I thought I would get exposure notifications which is slightly more life and death than privacy fantasies of fossbros.
They ~silently~ disabled the entire covid thing. I am so livid. This was supposed to be better than google, but in this case they've showed way less sense and responsibility
I'm not against the removal of the code given that some people using the OS require a higher degree of defense against tracking, but since its removal broke support for contact tracing, it should have been explicitly clear to the user.
