requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

pair with Bluetooth devices
Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.

access Bluetooth settings
Allows the app to configure the local Bluetooth phone, and to discover and pair with remote devices.

directly call phone numbers
Allows the app to call phone numbers without your intervention. This may result in unexpected charges or calls. Note that this doesn't allow the app to call emergency numbers. Malicious apps may cost you money by making calls without your confirmation.

disable your screen lock
Allows the app to disable the keylock and any associated password security. For example, the phone disables the keylock when receiving an incoming phone call, then re-enables the keylock when the call is finished.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

read phone state
Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

draw over other apps
Allows the app to draw on top of other applications or parts of the user interface. They may interfere with your use of the interface in any application, or change what you think you are seeing in other applications.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    Thank you for implementing such a wonderful apps. You should keep option for downloading for old version mobile users. Like, a lots of peoples are leaving in Qatar, thouse are using very old model mobile phones. They are suffering now for their old phones, they do not have availability to buy a new phone and now they are not able to come out from their home for their urgency. We can make a option for SMS service system. How we are checking our mobile balance, in the same way you can implement.

  2. Tahir Naeem-avatar

    Drains battery way to fast. I think this app is not for those who are staying home. I am staying home for around 2 months now so it is useless for me. Good app for those who are going out for work. The access for Bluetooth is fine and location is also fine but storage permissions isnt the good idea. The storage permissions is for what checking root? I think its not required please stop asking for storage permissions.

  3. Zainab Ishtiaq-avatar

    I can't start it. Always getting the same message "error getting OTP, try again " and this "try again" never ends. With such an important app in the current scenario, the developer could have done a better job fixing these issues. How can we follow the state's orders if the app doesn't even work?!

  4. Tony Moontytir-avatar

    Impossible to register no matter how many times i did try!!! Error requesting OTP keeps popping!! Sought technical support at # 109 with no avail !! And to add a problem on top of countless technical problems and reported flaws some of retailers, hypermarkets and services providers are not accessible any more without having an operational app!!!!!!!

  5. Tim Palin-avatar

    Excellent safety precautionary application. Also has great future potential. However, as with most people I have to agree that the application is too heavy on the phones systems. In addition it is not required to operate on the phone all the time as only required if you are out of the house as per MOPH instructional guidelines. Finally, I do not see why the application requires access to sensitive phone data such as"media". Pleass correct these issues to have a great tool against COVID19.

  6. ajay palani-avatar

    Worst app ever seen my life. Could not able to register by error OTP receiving issues and even after receiving OTP, getting error registering issues. If we contact customer care, no body answering and loosing mobile balance faster. Even if some one answer from customer care no, saying they are trying to fixing this issue. But Qatar govt is saying to use this app compulsory. But having technical issues and no body fixing this issues. Whats going on here pls.

  7. Asia Ocioszyńska-avatar

    Asia Ocioszyńska


    The idea of such an app is very good, however, the technicalities are poor. The app is draining my phone battery and doesn't work without a permission to obtain access to the gallery and calls, which I am not fine with. Moreover, after installing it, I simply cannot control bluetooth on my phone, even if I switch it off, it lights up the screen and switches the bluetooth on itself (!). Not to mention that each notification is renounced many times and whenever comes also lights up the screen.

  8. Deborah Krndija-avatar

    Deborah Krndija


    This app should only require the use of location to function. However, on Android for it to function also forces the user to give access to photos, files, and enable to make calls. There is no need for it to have access to all this information on the user's phone. Additionally, it rapidly depletes the battery and causes the phone to overheat. Improvements are needed since it is mandatory for people to add the app to their phones.

  9. Adam Zaki-avatar

    Keeps sending me notifications that don't have any information on them, keeps waking my phone when I lock it and turns the Bluetooth automatically. I appreciate the initiative but it is extremely unecessary for the app to have access to my phone as well as media and storage on the device. Privacy is very important to me as well as others in Qatar and letting the government have access to people's personal data is a bit excessive

  10. Sathistijan pillai Sathis-avatar

    Sathistijan pillai Sathis


    It's not good app... Try another app what the government provided this app without knowing the problems.. If u download the app once in our mobile it will be there untill we uninstall that app... But if we install one time it must be work properly... After 1 week again the App is asking same details to give in App.... It's OK if they ask we will do... But still it's not working if we give the same details.... Police r checking 100% if the app is not working shall we do... Let this Qatar govern.

  11. Ro Mhel-avatar

    This app is good for info on this covid19 concerns but... 1. Drains battery so fast. 2. Makes the phone overheated 3. What is the purpose to gain access to the storage to modify, delete and read the contents? I think this is our personal property already. 4. The app doesnt want to give your phone a break as it always wanted the screen on, disabled your screen lock, run foreground service, run at startup, and also has the access to make call and access to your phone identity...etc.. Pls fix!!

  12. Tharaka Madushan-avatar

    Tharaka Madushan


    Even though the idea of this app is good. The app is destroying the phones. Battery is gone within houre also overheating my phone for no reason. Technically very poor app. its like a virus in my phone im getting abnormal CPU usage warning time to time. If the MOI cant fix the problems better not to make this app mandatory. Thank you.

  13. abdu-avatar

    It's a good idea but it needs always to be the bluetooth and location on... it is causing to drain the battery soon... people can't use it if it is not user friendly. So pls fix these problems. When we apply something in to effect it should be not causing burden to the user esp those who use cheaper mobiles. Thank you for your understanding. Hope this will be fixed soon..

  14. Darko Vojinovic-avatar

    Darko Vojinovic


    Dissaster phone killing app, access to delete and format SD card? Access to private library??? Power hungry, constant pinging location draning battery and the phone goes hot it is obligated to be installed. COVID 19 or not, Thank you very much for that. Needs heavy optimization and less agressive personal data access .

  15. Janko Šušnjar-avatar

    Janko Šušnjar


    There's no instructions, no explanations, the ToS you have to accept, but can't read it. The battery is drained insanely fast, meaning i have to have my phone fully charged before going outside; not to mention that it slowly kills the phone in this way. And to top it all off, it requires access to photos and calls, which makes no sense at all or it won't start - people are spending money and waiting in queues just to get burner phones to protect their privacy. Is anybody looking into this issue?

  16. Ibrahim ElShafei-avatar

    Ibrahim ElShafei


    The idea and goal is good. The design is poor. Why would you need Phone and Storage access? The UI could improve, why would you give a splash screen with the start button? Why don't you just go straight to the main screen? Last, when you post updates, please be more transparent and give more details about the update. Don't just mention "minor bug fixes". Thanks.

  17. Azmy Ameer-avatar

    I have been trying to srt it up since it was announced. However, it does not let me to so and errors our when I submit to register. It gives an error message that says "error requesting OTP, try again". There is no way to get help or to contact the publishers to report the error either. Its a very important app, requires support in such circumstances. Can someone attend to this pls

  18. Zeping Lin-avatar

    Extremely poorly developed app. The amount of permission controls required just to allow the app to run makes my device a vulnerability to hacks. There is really no reason for bluetooth to always be on when location information is allowed. It should not have the permission to modify my contents on my phone. Also why does it need to make calls on my phone. A lot of these issues and vulnerabilities needs to be addressed.

  19. nasik nazim-avatar

    The app needs some revision. It's just spoiling our mobiles. Battery drains off and needs to be charged all the time. And I don't know if only with my mobile, the screen gets open on its own and is slow and pauses while using. More than satisfaction it's being a nuisance. Hope u you all can do some upgrade.

  20. Adnan Ansari-avatar

    This app is mandatory by law but then I am given T&C to accept or decline. If I decline I m breaking the law and if I accept I'm giving all sorts of access which I don't want to give. Rapid battery drainage because of always on Bluetooth and continuous broadcasting will shorten the life of battery. Access to storage, files, pictures, phone, etc is totally unacceptable (pls don't give me some nonsense about jailbreak, etc! ). Intention behind app is good but the app itself is poor.

  21. Ajay Nair-avatar

    I believe this is a good way to track people....but its alot of battery load on my phone. You can make it appear more user "friendly", as it is just tracking people all the time even when there home. People can feel safe if You guys can add an option called going out, where the bluetooth and tracking starts and not all the time and switch it off at home.

  22. Khalid-avatar

    It's a good app to stay safe and informed, I appreciate being warned when I'm with someone who's a carrier and hope they will be tracked to make sure are being quarantined but the need to access private & personal data and information such gallery and contacts is a concern for many users. Furthermore, it drains the phone battery so fast because it needs the Bluetooth and GPS to be turned on to function properly. Most of these issues can be fixed and hope to see this happening in the near future.

  23. M Sardhar-avatar

    Technical recommendations: Many users, does not read the activation steps, that must be shown as steps by step navigation wizard. Many users does not know that 'enabling bluetooth' is essential for registering first time. Those who get popup messages such as 'ID card expired' or 'error registering' must first enable the bluetooth and try again. Instead of above message, the developer can add the specific reason, so that it will be more user friendly.

  24. Maria Albader-avatar

    I put everything and keep saying id expired. Is not working for me. What to do? Thank you for your answer but still cannot communicate your email does not receive more. Please need a contact number where to explain my issue. Also on the ID field is suppose to allow the 11 digits and the last digit fells from the field. In other words ex. 99999999999 9 The last digit is out of the field. Thank you

  25. Gal Adrian-avatar

    Wanted to use the app to see why people complain about. Guess what it didn't work. Well I've got the answers. It want access to the files, media and camera on the device (for what reason?) obviously I denyed access, that's my privacy. It wants to know the location, I'm fine with that. Bluetooth always on... OK... But I can't use it because I have to give permission all the permissions. How about the high battery usage that everyone complains?Dear developers please answer. I respect the initiatve

  26. Diyane Collins-avatar

    Do not like the fact that it has access to every aspect of my phone. This is completely unnecessary with regards to reducing the spread of Covid-19. I appreciate the need to know my location at all times, as well as my contacts; other than this there is no feasible explanation for this app needing access to my emails, watsap, phone calls etc etc etc. It is a violation if my privacy.

  27. Ernie Dela Cruz-avatar

    Ernie Dela Cruz


    Nice app. specially if you are in front of check point police, Just a useful tip on fast draning battery, Go to SETTINGS/APPLICATION MANAGER/ETHERAZ/FORCE STOP. Then you can turn off your Bluetooth & Location. You don't need to turn it off while you are outside of your house. This is mandatory, to warn you from person with Covid 19 positive around you.

  28. jen oms-avatar

    the idea and intiative is very good but it consumes too much battery power and it makes the phone slower. also if i may suggest if there is a map and indicate by location the hotspots in order to avoid going to those areas. additionally, if i am home then turned off the app, the app just keeps on popping on the background and enabling the bluetooth, it says we can only turn on the app while going outside. maybe there will be additional settings for us people to customize the control of this app.

  29. Aisha AlKhatib-avatar

    It forcefully turns on bluetooth, you cannot turn it off, ever. It drains the battery and if my phone is dead it will be no good for my work life nor Ehteraz since it will be useless. Furthermore, when I am at home, sleeping I don't need to be tracked, thank you. My suggestion is give people the freedom to turn off bluetooth, please. It cannot be on 24/7. Otherwise people will keep uninstalling and reinstalling it daily.

  30. Mehrea Beyene-avatar

    The most important app for residents of Qatar and the most complained about app that I came to know. It cannot be optimized with my iPhone so I installed the Android version on my tablet and I made sure it was always updated but today I was refused admission to a Mall because it wasn't updated. I tried to update but the response is that I have the latest version. I am confused and so is the app. This app can serve only a few people! ONLY FEW PEOPLE!!

  31. Shekainah TV-avatar

    The worst app at all. Your full battery will be finished within 1 hour. people who are using manual mobile, Blackberry mobile or low internal spaced mobile then they couldn't register. Can run this app in different mobiles with the same ID at once so the covid 19 affected person also can carry and go anywhere with the green coded apps by others name. Many people have finished their visa and waiting for the flight to be opened so they also cannot register.

  32. Juanjo Michavila-avatar

    Juanjo Michavila


    it's not working if you don't have IOS 13.1 It's not working if you don't give access to your PRIVATE photos, PRIVATE files.... After two weeks it's NOT WORKING!!!!!!!!!!! And when you call the technical service to ask they answer "sorry it's a technical problem we don't now when it's going to work"!!!!!!!! VERY BAD APP VERY BAD SERVICE!!!!!!

  33. Jibreel Lei-avatar

    Bluetooth always on and GPS making it drain my battery too fast. I am using Sony android and battery 🔋 will not last long cos of this app, Why? It might be helpful for easy tracking our health as a citizen to combat covid but an upgrade to this application will help for our battery not to suffer much. Remove Bluetooth. Especially if we are outside not all has power bank. Thank you

  34. Sp M-avatar

    I support the moi effort to contain the virus but this app is a big mistake. Instead of forcing everyone to download a badly designed app and threaten people with hefty penalty, moi should have tested the app multiple times and get feedback before mandating it prematurely. It slows the phone dramatically and drains battery so quickly. If one can't have the phone active whats the point of this app? I cant pause the app once i get home so it keeps draining battery. No need for access to photos.

  35. venkitvk TRADING-avatar

    It requires to be a little more user friendly with additional information. The settings are opened with some expectations but it changes the language. Regarding telephone number it requires additional options. Those who opt for leaving permanent it is not clear how it works when post paid mobile connection is closed. It could have been provided a change option atleast. And as most of the expatriates are more familiar with English the notifications are only partially clear it seems.

  36. Muhammad Iqbal-avatar

    Getting better in limited scope. Rating improved as seeing improvements in app.. though way to go and will keep updating. Great concept and vision ... 5 star is less for concept and vision... but whole concept lost somewhere in transformation from vision to reality in technology. Point to consider including family registration on one app, older OS version, system resource utilisation, battery heat up, low salary workers, visitors etc.

  37. Alexander Chung-avatar

    I think your data base have some glitches, I've been trying to register, and each time it says YOUR ID QID expires on July 31, 2020...and we are only on May 19, 2020 as of this writing...and i can't register until now...and you will fine me QR 200,000 for not being able to registet because of your datas glitches?

  38. Karla Lauren Esteban-avatar

    Karla Lauren Esteban


    And stop saying bluetooth and location are needed. It isn't addressing our needs and concerns. Give a solution. Edit: I would like to suggest that you give us the option for a sleep mode. A time frame where you let our batteries rest. Like when we're asleep.

  39. Simo Moutchou-avatar

    It's a bad app... How come u wanna access to my pics, videos and files, and also manage my phone calls??? This is the most ridiculous thing I have heard about. I allowed the location, I allowed the Bluetooth.. No issues... But my privat things... Thats juts carzy...... This is not a helpful app... And I'm not going to allow it into my files and phone calls.

  40. Hazel Azodnem-avatar

    'Exceeded number of allowed reinstallation' I already leave it for a night and still I can't register. I already called the help line but he said that I can do it after an hour because I put it multiple times but until now, still the same. What can I do about this problem? Thanks.

  41. Jihan Galeon-avatar

    Had the same experience with my app where it did not show my name. I uninstalled it and installed it back but when I tried to register, OTP error for so many times. What I did was uninstalled the app, restarted my phone and then installed it again. It worked.

  42. abby crew-avatar

    Permissions: Why do they need to access my files and photos? Why do they need to access my calls? I understand GPS but the rest should not be. If I deny access to file and calls app won't work. Same with Bluetooth its drained the battery quickly. It should have option of on and off.

  43. Alexy Baby-avatar

    The idea of developing this app for public concern is good, but while executing any application for public purpose, kindly look into all the possibilities of using app by the citizens without any hindrances, asof now many citizens including me can't able to register the application becoz they are asking QID and it's expiry date, as I am on family visit visa I have my passport and visa .it's my request kindly make an option in the app of putting passport number and it's expiry as we can also use

  44. Parag Bidathanapalli-avatar

    Parag Bidathanapalli


    The objective and purpose of the application is good. But it needs to have a switch on and switch off option so that we can turn off the bluetooth when at home. The bluetooth skills the battery. Keep the gps on and turn off the blue tooth when at home. Turn the bluetooth the moment the geo fence of house is crossed. Or allow manual at home / outside option.

  45. Random_ Trips-avatar

    Basically, the purpose of your app has good intention and advantages but sorry it keeps on crashing. I can't download it. Why this up has options of deny and allow if this keep on crashing everytime i deny this allowing to access photos and etc. I only want you to access my location. Please upgrade this app. first.

  46. Ali Al-marri-avatar

    The app request to access calls and gallery, which is not accepted as no upload is featured in the app, and application is not working with it. The application should be the same as the iphone one, not requesting for the access to gallery. Waiting for the application to be fixed to load it, as the idea is great and i wish to support it.

  47. Mohamed Salah-avatar

    This app actually since installation my phone start to be out of order, very slow respond, every single day gallery and files become missing, a lot of apps been opened automatically without notice, phone temperature becomes high, and battery as all downloader complaints quick draining I hope that this app technical team looking into all the critical reviews without ignoring

    I am impressed with the MOPH's response to comments and reviews. Particularly the recent update that has included the Terms and Conditions to make the use of the apo and legalities more transparent. I am trying the app currently to review the battery improvements. Overall, I am pleased with the apps function and the developers responses. Thank you!

  49. RAFEEQ TECH-avatar

    This is a very good idea This app will help you to quickly identify who is likely to carry the covid19 virus But this App mobile device is likely to be destroyed quickly because following the location always causes the mobile to overheat and the battery drain quickly Overheating may affect the motherboard of your mobile phones This app needs an update quickly

  50. Barani Dharan-avatar

    When I entered my details & it's showing I'm quarantined. I never been tested and I don't have any contact with positive cases. I called 109 and explained the situation they said it'll change with in 24 hours(it was happened due to wrong entry). But now 3 days nothing happened. I'm following up everyday. What to do now?

  51. Things-avatar

    Battery Draining due to GPS need to turn on all the time, while Bluetooth automatically on simultaneously. If turned off GPS, continuous notification sound comes. Similarly, thus Bluetooth turned off intentionally, due to installed app, it automatically turn on again. please fix the issues. App is good except above parts.

  52. Deepak Singh-avatar

    Not able to register even I received OTP, it says ID Expired, which not correct as my I'd is valid till next year. Tried calling helpline to report problems, but they were also not much of help. Continuously I am putting efforts and chasing them too, but of no use. Stuck at home can't even go out to buy groceries. Please fix this issue.

    Why this app always keep the bluetooth on without's a good initiative's should be user interface's draining my battery quickly...kindly do updates and give a option to turn on the bluetooth when we using the app...and this app is not supported in some mobiles like samsung s3..

  54. M. Arshik-avatar

    Appreciate the initiative....but drains the battery as it runs bluetooth and location constantly.....still it asks permission to "manage calls" and "media files" which is irrelevant. Though i saw few comments it tries to check jailbroken device..if so thats only for iOS...why for Android then. And am unable to install on iPhone 6s too....says not compatible Definitely needs more tweaking...i guess this was developed in a hurry.

  55. Mohsin-avatar

    Why the app needs permission to storage? Lot of people concerned about their privacy. If we deny permission to storage. The app doesnt work. People are forced to buy a new phone for this app which doesnt have their private files. As the app made mandatory for all. I request the developers to make an update and drop the permission to the storage please. Also it drains the battery so fast.

  56. Nidal Ewaidah-avatar

    I'm not able to register due to a technical issue in this application I always receive an error saying my ID is expired while its valid till next year, when calling the help line they cannot solve the issue. I recommend to update this application and consider the feedback issues that have faced the users very soon.

  57. King Kunta-avatar

    This is just an app for tracking and monitoring people. I don't see why an app that's supposed to inform me of a pandemic is asking for access to my files,gallery contacts and location. It also doesn't make any sense when such an app is being forced on us by the authorities to download it. Talk of martial law. This is privacy intrusion in petty manner.

  58. Abhishek Gupta-avatar

    Can't get the app to work after first time use. Can't get anyone on helpline 109 either. Tried on 3 different phones. Tried both my numbers on 3 phones one at a time. Keep getting error getting otp or something although I had managed to get the otp twice before using same device and phone number.

  59. Masum Ahmed-avatar

    Hello EHTERAZ. First this app work properly everything was good. But now recently i update this app then i never log in to my account. Everytime it show me that "EHTERAZ has stopped" i dont khow why? If you have any solution plz help me or do something for me then I can log in to my account. Thank you.

  60. Carol Olmillo-avatar

    1. This app drains my battery too fast for a daily use. 2. Can someone explain why this app needs an access to my storage? What it has to do with COVID monitoring in Qatar? 3. My phone gets heated up most of the time (i'm not using a very high-end, latest phone model to cope up)

  61. Gibson Thomas-avatar

    This app is a great initiative by the government to track covid 19, but just a few doubt. I guess it requires only the permission to access location while it asks permission to access photos,files etc. Dnt understand the logic behind this. Another issue being faced is the battery is draining too fast.

  62. vp tomz-avatar

  63. SE Calicut-avatar

    I have installed Ehteraz app two weeks ago. Today I have noticed that my name and date and time is not displaying on the screen near QR code. So I have reinstalled the app, but when I enter OTP it's saying " error registering ". I have tried several times but still not fix the issue.

  64. Don Colee-avatar

    can't activate it !!! even though I received the sms but it doesn't accept to activate the application aal Emadi hospital didnt allow me to enter into the premises until I show that my Ehteraz is green and it's not working ? Also why it needs access to the photos ? where is the connection between the application and photos ?

  65. Amit Pant-avatar

    Really bad application.. i had registered in it but now i came know it is not working in my phone as my name was not showing. I installed it again and now it is not letting me registering showing error in requesting otp..really time wasting exercise. Idea is good but implementation really bad

  66. Waleed Omer-avatar

    Overall, the app's idea of tracing active Covid-19 cases is good, however the app needs some improvement. There are battery issues and notifications are received every couple of hours but nothing there when you open the app! Also, I received an update notification, although the last version is installed.

  67. Richard T. Eke-avatar

    If the APP does what they say it does, then it's fine. However, it drains mobile battery very fast. I dont see any problem with demanding access to storage etc.. Facebook and other irrelevant social media Apps have access to everything about its users.. I think Ehteraz needs more access in that regards. download and keep charging your phones.

    I just can't install the app, well I can, then go through the settings and deny access to photos and numbers which should be my right and I allow location and then it keeps coming up with an error page, I've tried several times.

    The App is draining my phone's battery. I don't have a provision to charge it on the move, and coz of this i am finding my phone discharged and turned off almost every day... please rectify the issue ASAP... And also the app needs some permissions to access my storage and calls.. could you please explain why is that?

  70. OmgItsMsj-avatar

    I wanted to give zero but what ever, I have the right to give my review on it the way I like it. Firstly I feel like the app is insecure and collecting data, secondly i fear for privacy. I feel like the app is unnecessary. And lastly it turns my Bluetooth by itself and does not not turn off with my choice, GPS is 24/ 7, it should have been when I m going out I would turn it on but it's not in my control. From what I see this app should be removed or need to be fixed! Soon

    App is draining battery too fast and this is not at all convenient. Further to that, why does it want permission to access my gallery? This is personal stuff and nobody should be accessing it. I get that u need permission for location and Bluetooth, but why the gallery i don't and will not get it.

  73. Usman Ghani-avatar

    I have installed this app. Accepted to access my phone for managing calls & device location. but it is asking for access to my personal files i.e access for photos, media & files on this device. How can I share my personal data. If I deny it I can't open the application. Please advise, how to open the application for registration.

    First of all greate initiative from MOI to release these kind of application . Here i would like to mention some issues i have faced in EHTERAZ App. 1. It's need Storage permission ? ( if my phone rooted what would be the problem) 2. Application causes battery drain and heat issue for phone( my phone is high end phone) I hope R&D team will consider and check the above mentioned issues. Thank you 😊

    Due to its automatic activation of bluetooth and GPS, I have to keep my phone charged most of the time, and the notification also cannot be turned off, which keeps my phone there anyway to fix at least about notification? Is it only with my phone??

    Very simple tool that requires lots of acesses Why gallery and call? Can you explain or maybe update and use different methods. Some says app uses new version of Bluetooth that will not consume battery, but that is not true 😅 Very good idea in general. Should be applied and explained better

    Great Idea, But Major Flaws MUST be attended immediately. Service should be accessible to ALL people in our country, currently this app cannot be activated with VISITORS details. It is a major drawback. and Compatibility issues, with Black Berry, IOS under 13, android under 6 etc. Developers should work on it, or else it will be useless. (think about a COVID person in Visit Visa, and his primary contacts ... )

  78. Sajid Malik-avatar

    Good app to keep us safe. Only concern is that it requires permission to phone media. I am not sure if my personal data is on risk or safe. I feel that i have allowed the hackers whoever is near me to access my phone and steal my personal data. I think access to media should not be asked by the app. I hope my phone data is not being transmitted all the time...

  79. Jasna Nk-avatar

    We wholeheartedly support the minstries effort to keep the virus situation under control. Totally fine giving location and gps access too. But why would an health app need permission to read my "shared content" read "phone status "and identity modify or delete "my storage " make calls?? Isn't it a bit too much. ?

  80. Aatif Iqbal-avatar

    Great idea,Very useful apps in our health easy to secure & Track affected people's. Only QID people easy to login but without QID not possible to login. So i think need to alternative login option through the (Ex-QID/VISA/PASSPORT) So, I think need for more development this apps. As soon as possible. Thanks you.

    I have been trying to create an account for 10 min, first off it shouldn't need to access my files and pictures, access of location is normal. I appreciate the attempt and I wish it was working but it gives me an expired id card notification even though my id card is still valid for 5 more months

  82. edgar tambal-avatar

    I'm ok and no problem about the access this app requires if it's keep us safe, my only concern about this app is my smartphone battery is draining too fast. Kindly please do something about it and hoping in the coming update/s, our concerns are being address..very grateful for keep us safe on this current pandemic.

  83. J.S. Kullar-avatar

    Unable to register now, tried multiple times. Was working alright last week, just refuses to run now. Least that can be done is make the app work, so people are not inconvenienced. Since entry into supermarkets requires this app, how do I shop for groceries when the app refuses to work?

  84. JARI-FF N-avatar

    The concept of this app is good but please fix the requirement that we have to open Bluetooth abd GPS all the time. Espicially for Bluetooth it keeps pop up notification to enable it. It's draining battery + it's uncomfortable to use another app. It should be more user friendly.

  85. Julia Deeley-avatar

    I just can't install the app, well I can, then go through the settings and deny access to photos and numbers which should be my right, I allow location and then it keeps coming up with an error page, I've tried several times..I have an android phone.

    This App cliams no personal data is captured from devices. Having said that, why the app needs permission to access device's photos and videos? moreover, the links provided at the bottom of this Google play web page for privacy policy & web page link -opens MOI website !. Where is the App policy?

  87. Anupam Dey-avatar

    First, I tried in my I phone 5S and it's not installing. It's need IOS 3.0 and above and I can't update my phone now as it's already updated (12.4.6) as per Apple. To do update IOS 3.0 Apple need to provide the updation. Second, I have tried in my another phone ; Redmi note 3. It's installed but during the time for acceptance of terms and privacy page, it's getting off and showing "Unfortunately Ehteraz stop working". Please advice what shall I do.

    The concept and the intention is good. But sorry to say that app is not a user-friendly.... I had to uninstall the app due to it's running my battery and after I tried to doesn't work and gives me the registration failed.... Please fix these type of errors

  89. Sunil Kumar-avatar

  90. Joshy Francis-avatar

    The purpose of the application is good, what is the need of access to phone gallery and calls. Only people with QID can register. No option available for people here through other authorized channel. People have no other option.

  91. Emilio Andiso-avatar

    This app is just good source of info but it drains my battery very fast make my phone overheat. In case of emergency my phone run out of battery. I can not figure out how it can be helpful to me. I can get info from other reliable source.

  92. Dan Njuguna-avatar

    If u allow the app to access permissions in ur phone then it drains ur battery coz it runs at all time even when u r using it and it's able to keep ur phone awake, it has access to your Bluetooth and location, don't ask me why it needs the Bluetooth on and location on , it keeps on reading your storage and can modify your storage by deleting contens in ur sd card, n it can draw over other apps. If u turn off the permissions then the app stops working, now u can rlate wat it's doing.

  93. Chris Evans-avatar

    Right idea, wrong execution. Violation of personal storage and phone for you to check if device is "jailbroken"? Cut the BS! No other app needs those permissions so you don't either! Drains battery very fast as constantly broadcasting gps and bluetooth. Install on an empty phone.

  94. Muhammad Yaser Ejaz-avatar

    Huge number of people in Qatar use iPhones and iPhone's bluetooth is restricted. How will this application trace the contact between an iPhone and android user? Similar problem is being faced in other countries as well. This issue limits the app's basic purpose. Just a thought !

    It's a good app but should fix the battery draining issue. What if we are outside and this app drained our battery then we come to a police checkpoint? Plus lower IOS for iPhones cannot install it. Current situation is impossible for many to buy new phone just for this purpose.

  96. Abdul Hammoude-avatar

    The app is fine but what I dont understand is why do you need storge and phone call access and keep the bluetooth on? GPS tracking should suffice to know where the person has been, having gps turned on all the time drains the battery and having bluetooth on as well drains the battery even more

    Not able to register even I received OTP, it says ID Expired, which not correct as my l'd is valid till next year. Tried calling helpline to report problems, but they were also not much of help. Continuously I am putting efforts and chasing them too, but of no use. Please fix this issue.

    The app stops after clicking agree button, stop message appears, background turns black, then shows the start screen again. I'm using android version5.0 phone. Uninstalled and reinstalled app, still the same. Need help. I hope this can run on older android or ios versions. Thank you.

    Good concept. My battery is drying. Is it compulsory to keep my bluetooth and location service always on even i am at home. When i switched off bluetooth, pop-up message to get access the bluetooth is annoying. Some updates should be there to solve these. I giving just 3 stars.

  100. Urban Stranger-avatar

    the App is taking over the phone, then keeps on switching on both bluetooth and gprs if switched off its draining our mobile phones charge its ever on and it cant work if not given permission to access gallery and phone contacts of which am not of the idea i need privacy no being monitered all the time..... another thing who needs all that radiation by tha way from phone waves, bluetooth waves, gprs i dont want to die cause of cancer as i protect my self frm Corona virus
