Viruses such as COVID-19 can spread before symptoms occur, therefore, an infected person may spread the disease without the knowledge of themselves and others. This means that by the time the symptoms appear, the virus may have already spread to others, and it is not enough for symptomatic people to stay at home to stop the virus from spreading. Through the Korona Stop LT app, an infected person can quickly inform all people with whom they have been in close contact during the infectious period. In this way, the app users can find out about a possible infection early on and take steps to protect themselves and the health of others. By using the Korona Stop LT app, you contribute to reducing the number of infections in Lithuania, regardless of whether you are infected or in close contact.

Phones that use the app register the Bluetooth signals from other nearby phones. If the signal is sufficiently close and long enough, an anonymous code referring to a close contact will be stored in their phone. If a person now confirms their infection with the Korona Stop LT app, the anonymous  keys on their device will be uploaded to a central server where all users can download them. It is not possible to identify a person based on an anonymous code. The user’s phone compares whether the infected person’s anonymous code matches a code previously stored on their phone. If so, the user is considered to be a close contact and they will be notified. It will not be revealed to the user who the infected person was with whom they were in contact with, or any other information that would allow the indirect identification of the infected person.
