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. And easily share your health status with friends so you can make informed decisions.


SafePass helps us stay safer and socialize responsibly.

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.

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

Make informed decisions about spending time with friends and family together according to local health office orders and protocols.

How It Works

Activate your SafePass.

Your SafePass is your daily destination for COVID-related alerts and activity, including your exposure to people who tested positive, meaningful contact that increases your risk, test results, test locations, and symptom tracking. Enable contact tracing and know exactly when and where you got exposed to COVID-19.

Get alerted when you need to get tested.

If you’ve had contact with somebody who later tests positive for COVID-19, you’ll get a notification to get tested, with options for nearby testing sites or get a free at-home test (learn more in the FAQ). If you test positive, anyone you’ve been in contact with recently will be notified – without revealing any identifying information about you.

Connect with friends and share SafePasses.

Share your SafePass with others so you can make informed decisions about spending time with friends, colleagues at your workplace.

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.
