FAQs

COVI-PASS™ is a permission-based digital health wallet. That means the user is in full control of deciding what information goes into the wallet. It is known as ‘self sovereign identity’. This particular wallet allows you to show your COVID-19 test status if required. It is a health wallet that you control.

COVI-PASS™ isn’t about immunity. It is simply a digital place where a person can keep their COVID-19 test result or any other health information.

Step 1: You download the app in the iOS OR Android store, set up a secure password to gain access to your digital wallet.

Step 2: Once in your wallet you can add any important health information to your wallet. If you have a COVID-19 test, you can upload that securely for when you need to show you have had a valid test. 

Step 3: When you need to share your COVID-19 test, or any other health information, you open up your wallet and present a code that can be scanned from 2 metres away, or you can pass a secure hash code to validate and view your information. 

You are the owner of your data, so every time you share your information, it disappears and another code is requested once finished. We take data very seriously, this is why every user is the owner of their health data, nobody else can access it unless you have granted them permission. 

For businesses – if you want to issue tests to your employees, the process is exactly the same, the only difference is we offer more solutions to meet your needs.

Whilst COVI-PASS™ offers testing solutions, we do not carry out testing. COVID-19 tests are carried out by healthcare professionals using our tests or their own. Once the test is carried out you can upload your results to your secure digital health wallet.

Circle Pass Enterprises Ltd, the company who created COVI-PASS™, provides its own medical certificate to validate your COVID-19 status. Any third-party medical certificate that has been authorised by a health entity can also be uploaded to your wallet.

Your digital health wallet can also hold other important medical information that you need to keep at hand and secure.

The only moment someone will see your test result is the registered medical professional who carried out the test. This could be a lab, or your local doctor. Once your tests is carried out and you have your certificate, you can store it securely in your wallet, where nobody can access it unless you grant them permission. 

If you get tested by a COVI-PASS™ integrated solution, your results are pushed directly to your device using your unique hash code, in the same way a typical Bitcoin transaction takes place, the only difference is this is your test certificate.

COVI-PASS™ is built using decentralised blockchain technology, cryptographic encryption and double authorisation to assure User Data Protection. COVI-PASS™ protects privacy rights and is GDPR Compliant, it also aligned with the new privacy shield laws.

COVI-PASS™ can be scanned from over eight meters away. This gives peace of mind as there is no requirement for physical screening.

COVI-PASS™ is a solution that can help where test results might be a prerequisite for an activity. Travel, work and stadiums are such examples.

COVI-PASS™ is different to track and trace solutions and that is not its purpose. The purpose of COVI-PASS™ is to have a place to keep your validated Covid-19 test result.  For example, your airline might ask you to show that you have had a test before flying. Showing it on your digital app is one way to share that information. You can travel knowing that your medical information is on hand in case of an emergency.

We are all waiting for the day that a vaccine can be found for this disease. Until then, COVI-PASS™ can be used to carry the COVID-19 test result. As this is a digital health pass it could also be used to show other tests and vaccinations. Some people have a booklet that has a record of their vaccinations. This is the same, but in digital format.

The COVI-PASS™ health wallet is owned by you, this means you are in control of your data at all times and you grant access when required. 

We are currently working with Governments around the world, along with private businesses to assist with safe, reliable and accurate testing that supports our health wallet.

Having a COVID-19 test might be required if you are in a certain profession such as social care or retail for example. It might also be required at certain touch points in life, such as going on holiday. If you do require a test, you’ll need a way to show the result. COVI-PASS™ is one way to do this. The result can also be shown on paper, although it’s probably safer to store it digitally.

If your COVID-19 test result is negative, that is, it shows you are free of COVID-19, and you are with other people who have also had a negative test result, then there would be no reason to physically distance.

Having a digital health wallet to carry your COVID-19 test result is not going to replace face coverings. A person’s health status can change. The only time it would be safe to be without a face covering is if you were in an environment where you knew everyone else also had a negative COVID-19 test result. Wearing of face masks is the responsibility of the individual and should be considered accordingly.

The only information that COVI-PASS™ holds is your Covid-19 test result. There is no personal information listed on the pass.

COVI-PASS™ uses blockchain technology. That means there is no usable data stored. The information is hashed; put into very long alpha-numerical sequencing so all the bits of information are jumbled up and don’t mean anything.  COVI-PASS™ is a solution that has been designed with civil liberties and data privacy at its very core.

We are supported by a global leadership group of virologists and immunologists who help us guide our customers who want to carry out COVID-19 testing. We value privacy and data protection, so we are not obligated to share names, however should you want to speak with one of our expert advisors, we would be happy to facilitate that.

You can add your COVID-19 test result directly to your COVI-PASS™ digital health wallet or integrate it into other digital wallets, such as the Apple wallet if you prefer.

We provide accurate tests and a secure health wallet for you to keep your data safe. If you have any worries about COVID-19 and coming into contact with the virus, we advise you to contact your doctor and follow the necessary steps for your country.

COVI-PASS™ is a digital health wallet. It is secure technology that enables you to carry your test result digitally, should you want to. It will be governments and organisations who decide if and how they want to implement COVID-19 tests. COVI-PASS™ gives people a choice in that they can present their test result in a digital way should they want to.

COVI-PASS™ is built on secure, decentralised blockchain technology. It is GDPR compliant. The nature of being decentralised means that the solution can sit in line with data and privacy structures within countries.

COVI-PASS™ is currently in beta and will be available for public download in August.
