Portuguese Covid tracking app rant 

So, it seems that the website for the tracking application redirects to the wordpress login page, you can verify this now @ stayawaycovid.pt

There have been lots of pushback as the code was also published and raised many many concerns over its security specially private data sharing with apple / google. You can see the issues raised on the official github of the app here: github.com/stayawayinesctec/st

Portuguese Covid tracking app rant 

How can one minimally trust that our privacy is secure when the government cannot even launch a wordpress site properly?

The Portuguese government wants somehow to show off that they are modern, by sharing the app code after much pressure, but they are constantly shooting themselves in the foot, they dont know how to deal with IT at a governmental level, and this shows, and makes me sad.
