The Aarogya Setu app was launched last month for the Jio Phone model and now as per the latest announcement, the app has been downloaded by 30 million users. The Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) gave this information in a tweet on Monday. The Google Play listing shows that the app has been downloaded 100 million times. Arogya Setu was initially introduced for Android and iOS devices and was recently launched on the KaiOS platform for wider reach. Jio Phone and Jio Phone 2 run on KaiOS.

In early April, the government introduced the Aarogya Setu app in India to limit the spread of COVID-19. This COVID-19 tracking app uses Bluetooth and location and detects your contact with people who are either COVID + positive or may come positive in the near future. Since the launch of the app, it has been promoted by many government officials, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Arogya Setu had crossed 50 lakh downloads within three days of launch and since then this figure has been increasing.


Although 500 million smartphone users were available in India at the time of its launch, 40 crore basic feature phone users could not use this app. A month after the launch of the app, the app was launched for Jio phones.

With the widespread reach of the Arogya Setu app, the government hopes to track the spread of coronavirus in India. But the reason behind the download of the app with such speed can also be considered the strict rules imposed by the government. In early May, the government announced another extension of the lockdown to prevent the COVID-19 epidemic, making it mandatory for all public and private sector employees to use the Arogya Setu app. The rules were relaxed about two weeks later, stating that "District officials advise people to install the Arogya Setu App on their phones."


Recently the app was also made necessary for passengers traveling by air. Also, remind that Aarogya Setu has also come in the circle of controversies regarding app privacy and security.
