Letter to the Privacy Commissioner About Exposure Notification API

  • Dear Commissioner Therrien,

    As part of regular updates, which includes security patches, Google and Apple have incorporated an Exposure Notification Application Programing Interface (API) into their operating systems to support COVID-19 contact tracing applications on personnel cell phones.

    I am asking your office to review the technical specifications of the Exposure Notification API, the related policies put in place by Apple and Google on government use of the API, and the measures Apple and Google are actively taking to ensure governments are respecting our privacy.

    Thank you for your attention on this pressing matter. I look forward to your response.
