    Good question! I don’t have an answer and I’m not sure how I feel about it!

    The option is still there in 13.5 official, but mine is off by default. Probably because I don't have any installed apps that can send exposure notifications.



    So does anyone have this enabled, and if so, what apps are installed that's allowing exposure notifications?

    Mine is off, and I'm leaving it that way. Not downloading the app. Seems this technology could be used to warn one of sex offenders or something. Why only COVID-19?

    I'm not doing it. We only have 119 confirmed cases in my County of 84,000 people. And about 30 of those have recovered. I'll take my chances without being traced or spied on.

    And... It began!

    Sorry, you can stay away of me if you want to, but I won't enable this "feature". Too much Orwell's 1984 for me.

    You're logged into an Apple device and have a SSN. You're already being traced AND spied on. You just aren't aware of it.

    Thank you.
