COVID Connect – The official COVID-19 app for South Africa

Here’s what you can do to turn the tide on these events, to help SA to overcome COVID-19. Download and use the COVID Alert SA app, the South African government’s official Bluetooth contact-tracing app. It’s built on the Apple–Google Exposure Notifications application programmable interface (API). User privacy and security are at the core of the design. Anyone in South Africa who has a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone can access this app.

You can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store.

  • Downloading the app is quick and easy – it’s under 3 MB in size.
  • The app is free and does not feature in-app purchases.
  • You will not have to pay for mobile data when you use the app – the data to use the app has been zero-rated by all of South Africa’s mobile network providers.
