In March 2020, the government of Singapore rolled out its TraceTogether cellphone app, which tracks phones to see when two have been close to each other. It promised the app would only be used when someone tested positive for the coronavirus to see whom that person had been close to.

Singapore residents are required to download the app to enter many workplaces and stores.
