COVID-19 Prevention App

Advanced pandemic prevention tool based on geospatial technology, purpose-built to subvert an infectious disease out of society at an accelerated rate.


Developed for optimised disease pattern-recognition, BIOS strikes the perfect balance in anonymity, encryption, and data intelligence to fight pandemics.


BIOS implements advanced geospatial technology using GEOSHASH with built-in anonymity, security, and regional metrics

Pathogen Pattern

Using state-of-the-art algorithms, BIOS extracts patterns from pathogen behavior for better prediction models

Public Policy

Regional metrics help officials and medical personnel design policies with minimum social and economic impact


Invalidate the BIOS contact tracing encryption called "Cryptonite" by revealing the original data and who it belongs to.


BIOS is hosting a four (4) hour online hackathon offering a cash prize of $1000 CAD to anyone who can break BIOS’ Cryptonite data-packet which will be provided at the beginning of the event on a ZOOM conference. Engineers, mathematicians, physicist, cryptographers, media, and enthusiasts are invited to join. The event will be streamed live (camera feed is required to participate).

Sign-Up to participate in the BIOS Cryptonite Hackathon or email directly to cryptonite@thebiosapp.com to register.
Participants will receive a confirmation email with further details.

What will I need to do to win the hackathon ?

Given that BIOS is a contact tracing app, and privacy is paramount, the challenge will entail two objectives to win:

  1. 1. Reverse the encryption or hash to determine the original data, and
  2. 2. Identify who the original data belongs to
Both objectives need to be met in order to qualify for the prize.

Tracking Covid-19 infections and travel paths has reached the highest level of priority for governments around the world. If a contact tracing app is going to be used, the technology employed to anonymize and secure user generated data should be subjected to a test.

The BIOS Cryptonite Hackathon is provided for free and open to all participants.

Participants must be courteous to each other. Any form of harassment, bullying, or misconduct is prohibited. If the rules set out here or through instructions provided during the hackathon are violated, BIOS reserves the right to revoke registration and participation of a participant at its discretion.


BIOS includes six vital functions in contact-tracing that conventional apps lack. These functions lend to the success of BIOS in adoption rates, security, and pathogen intelligence for health officials.

System Features

BIOS implements the most robust application feature-set available in any contact-tracing application, built on a high-security anonymous token.


Geo-tokens generated by BIOS are anonymous and encrypted when stored on servers.

Control Panel

Analysis and reporting dashboard is provided for government officials and medical personnel.

Battery Life

Short-burst, transient location measurements minimize battery consumption of the app.

Accurate Positioning

Unique fusion of multiple location measurements provides highly accurate position measurements.


Instant notifications are generated for infectious event cycles and close-proximity warnings.


Full 60-day historical readout of interactions is available for users, with risk assessment.


BIOS is developed in collaboration with highly regarded medical and technological experts and advisors with pandemic response experience in field-level operations, as well as geospatial data privacy and control.

Following are some frequently asked questions about BIOS. If you would like to enquire further, we will be happy to assist you. Please contact us below!

Does BIOS track me everywhere I go ?

No, BIOS does not track you. It uses your movements when in close-proximity to someone in order to create interactions and risk-assessments on your private phone for your review.

BIOS generates and stores anonymous and encrypted regional geo-tokens on the Cloud for professionals to analyse disease patterns. Location resolution is limited to 40 kilometers (25 miles) on server tokens.

BIOS may optionally request to encrypt and store at least one method of contacting you, like a phone number or email, for emergency notifications. Your address, name, or ID is not used or stored by the system.

In case you receive a notification, read it carefully. Follow the instructions provided to you in the message. The message will depend on the type of exposure risk you have had in the past with someone who has been found to be infected. Contact your doctor if you are notified to be at risk.

If you have been infected, your information will not be disclosed to your recent contacts. Your recent contacts will only receive an anonymous notification to alert them of a potential exposure risk.
