An essential part of your COVID toolkit.

With SafePass, you can track your symptoms, find testing sites, and enable Bluetooth contact tracing to get alerted when you’re exposed to COVID-19. If you need to meet with people outside your household for work or other essential reasons, create Pods together so you can stay aware.


Use SafePass and follow your local guidelines to better protect yourself.

Bluetooth contact trace to get alerted if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19. 

Find out early if you’re at a higher risk of having COVID, even if you don’t have symptoms.

Make smart decisions about spending time with people in accordance with local health guidelines.

Have peace of mind around coworkers if you’re back at your workplace.

How It Works

Create Pods with people you know.

Over the past few months, people have organically been establishing "pandemic pods" – small groups of people they are regularly seeing and staying on the same page with about COVID precautions. Now with SafePass, you can create Pods with family, classmates, coworkers, and other people you need to see.

Set prerequisites for events.

When you need to see people outside of your household in person, create a Pod event with shared prerequisites like testing negative for COVID, being symptom-free, and enabling Bluetooth contact tracing. You can let people in your Pod know if you test positive or have symptoms so you can keep each other safer.

Know when and where you were exposed.

Enable contact tracing and get alerted if you are exposed, with options for nearby testing sites. If you test positive, anyone you’ve been in contact with recently will be alerted. With Pods, know when to avoid spending time with anyone who has tested positive for COVID, and stay aware of your exposure risk even after an event is over.

SafePass is secure.

Nobody will own or profit from your data. 

Citizen has never sold and will never sell your data, and that goes for SafePass too. Your data is yours.

Data is private and encrypted. 

All contact tracing data is private, encrypted, and is deleted after 30 days. You can disable Bluetooth contact tracing at any time.

As this pandemic lingers, there remains a burning need for tools and products that can turn the tide, tools that our government is unable to provide. Citizen is waging war on COVID-19 with a system that puts containment in the hands of people.
