Yet I couldn't get an appointment for COVID 19 vaccine elsewhere... And doctolib still asked me to link my social media accounts. The privacy policy indeed stated that some of your medical data may be visible to Facebook if you linked your account, yet the "feature" is still there.

And it's not the end of it : the French sanitary pass is a 2d-code containing in clear text your name, birth date, where you were vaccinated, whether you were at risk, and if you were ever infected by COVID 19. The government's answer: the official app doesn't display this information. Macron didn't lie when he spoke about France becoming a "start-up nation"! His government is as careless as a your average startup...
@rodolphe @aral

@sossalemaire AFAIK this holds for Italian 2d code too, and my uneducated guess is that this "feature" is EU-wide

As Macron clearly put, that is not just out of coincidence but a model that contemporary states apply too

At least they say it loud & clear...

@rodolphe @aral

@diorama @sossalemaire @rodolphe @aral the dutch CoronaCheck app has two modes. An European mode and a national mode. The national mode only has a pass or no pass; combined with initials and place and date of birth. Which have to be validated against one’s passport. The European QR indeed exposes a lot more, probably because national rules diverged too much.

@sossalemaire @rodolphe @aral Requiring opt-in to surveillance of you and your friends by unrelated third-parties to get crucial medical treatment is outright evil.
