In response to media articles concerning the functionality of 1point5:
- 1point5 is not a COVID-19 nor a medical health app;
- The purpose of 1point5 is to inform and educate people about social distancing;
- Since Bluetooth is not accurate enough, the goal is not to give an 100% accurate distance. In ideal circumstances 1point5 can alert you when someone is - expectedly - encroaching your 1.5 meter perimeter;
- Detected devices of family members, friends or inanimate objects such as laptops can be ignored by clicking the x button.
