Slightly more than 600,000 people had downloaded the infection app within a few hours on Thursday, reports the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) to Dagbladet.
Project manager Gun Peggy Knudsen of FHI also confirms to the newspaper that there have been some problems with logging in.
“We see that some people have some login problems, but most people get through,” says Knudsen.
The new infection tracking app was developed by the research institute Simula and FHI, and was launched at the daily press conference on the corona situation on Thursday afternoon.
The app collects so-called proximity data and location data. It will help Norwegian municipalities with infection detection and can notify the user of the app if he or she has been near people infected by the coronavirus.
