Question:

How accurate are the Everbridge Proximity-based Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Contract Tracing Mobile Apps for both iOS and Android?

Answer:

On both Apple iOS and Google Android devices, the accuracy of the BLE Contract Tracing Mobile App feature is:

  • Distance: six feet
  • Time: 15 minutes

Please note that the six feet and 15 minute thresholds are derived from the BLE signal strength connection between two devices and both thresholds may vary slightly depending on a number of factors including obstacles between the devices, device models, and Operating System (OS) versions.

NOTE: The six feet and 15 minute thresholds are NOT configurable.
