How do I get the NHS COVID-19 app?

If you have an Apple phone, you can download the app from the Apple App Store.

If you have an Android phone, you can download it from Google Play.

The app is designed for use on smartphones only, not tablets. This is because for contact tracing to be effective, it needs to be on a device that you carry with you most of the time.

For more help on downloading the app, see this user guide.

If you’re having issues downloading the app, visit the troubleshooting common questions, or report a problem using the online form.
