Italy has launched its contact tracing app called Immuni. It uses Apple and Google’s exposure notification API. Find it on the App Store here.


Immuni was developed by the Extraordinary Commissioner in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry for Innovation Technology and Digitalization. It’s based on Bluetooth Low Energy, doesn’t collect any location data, and does not (and cannot) collect personally identifiable information.
