Tray icon for desktops supporting StatusNotifierItem spec (also known as appindicator) is planned for the future, as well as exposing the feature to run in background through the user interface ;)

Yesterday, I finally pushed my current source code implementing the Exposure Notification API to the @microg git repository.
This will allow using apps that use the Google/Apple framework for COVID-19 contact tracing on Android devices without the Google tracking it usually involves.

The current code is already functional, but still needs some improvements before it's ready for general public, but I am certain it's going to make it in the next @microg release.

@Bubu Easy, it shows how the Exposure Notifications API works, but they removed the "telemetry" parts, because that's probably "not interesting" for the public, right?

Looking for a few people to test the Exposure Notifications API of @microg

- Update your microG to microg.org/dl/core-en.apk
- Install and set up your local gov corona tracing app xda-developers.com/google-appl
- Verify that microG settings has Exposure Notifications enabled and shows the app as using it
- When you are in public tomorrow, go to microG settings again and verify that "Collected IDs" shows a higher number
- Report back here with device name and android version+rom

Thanks!

Seven years ago, as the news declared I was being charged as a criminal for speaking the truth, I never imagined that I would live to see our courts condemn the NSA's activities as unlawful and in the same ruling credit me for exposing them.

Sette anni fa, quando le notizie annunciarono che ero stato accusato come criminale per aver detto la verità, non avrei mai immaginato che avrei vissuto abbastanza per vedere i nostri tribunali condannare le attività della NSA come illegali e nella stessa sentenza attribuirmi il merito di averle smascherate.

As transferring personal data to the US is now illegal it's an unmissable opportunity for Europe to build up competitive alternatives, possibly based on Open Source software, to become as much as possible self sufficient when dealing with personal data:
