From the Document: "On April 10, Apple and Google announced that their mobile devices will soon support voluntary digital contact tracing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This support from the two companies that comprise 99 percent of the U.S. mobile phone market is significant because it promises to increase the scale and speed of contact tracing, and because it provokes questions about security and privacy. It is essential, then, to have a firm grasp of the details and of the facts in order to navigate the promises and perils of digital contact tracing"
