Digital vaccination certificate: 6 functions of CovPass and the Corona-Warn-App that you should know Without the digital vaccination certificate, almost nothing works at the moment. The CovPass app and the Corona warning app are now a constant companion in everyday life for many. We show you functions of the apps that hardly anyone knows. Whether in a restaurant, when shopping or on the bus and train: you have to carry and show your vaccination card with you almost everywhere. The easiest way to do this is via the digital vaccination certificate, which many save in the CovPass app. And at least since the Corona-Warn-App has also been able to read codes from the Luca app, it has been the better choice when checking in for events and the like. But there are a few practical additions in both the CovPass and the Corona-Warn-App -Functions hidden that many do not even know. In the following we will therefore show you the best tips and tricks for both applications.
Tips and tricks for the Corona-Warn-App
Tip 1: Corona warning app also understands QR codes from the Luca app With the Corona warning app, you can also scan the QR codes from the Luca app and check in without first downloading the Luca app. The other way around is not yet possible. However, the feature only works for QR codes that were generated after May 25, 2021. Older codes must therefore be updated. The bottom line is that users who do not use the Luca app can now also register for all events and operators no longer have to create an individual QR code for each app. The high data protection standards will not change in the future either, so that the Corona-Warn-App will continue to not collect any personal data and will not transfer any data from the Corona-Warn-App to the Luca-App. Since the Luca app is repeatedly the subject of data protection criticism, a switch to the Corona warning app is definitely appropriate. Tip 2: Corona-Warn-App has a warning option for events Another advantage over the Luca app: If visitors checked in via the Corona-Warn-App, organizers can warn their guests of a possible risky encounter with a person who later tested positive. If a person has tested positive and reported this to the health department, a transaction number will be issued, allowing the organizer to send a warning to everyone who attended the event. Tip 3: Expand the recycle bin function to include PCR and quick tests Previously, users could only restore deleted certificates from the recycle bin. Now, using the restore function, PCR and rapid tests can also be restored up to 30 days after the deletion process. But be careful: Only one active test can be registered in the app at a time. So if a test is restored from the recycle bin, the current test will be moved to the recycle bin instead.
Tips and tricks for the CovPass app
Tip 1: Print out the vaccination certificate via the CovPass app If the smartphone battery is empty or a printed version of the EU vaccination certificate is advantageous when traveling, then the vaccination certificate can be easily saved as a PDF and printed out via the CovPass app. However, you should not send the PDF document via email or share it via other apps. Tip 2: Check validity for trips Under “Check validity” in the CovPass app, you can check whether the certificate is valid in the respective country before starting a trip. For this purpose, the travel destination and the entry date are entered. However, it should be noted that entry rules are subject to change at any time. The validity of the certificate should therefore be checked again at least 48 hours in advance. Also, both on return and in individual regions, other rules or restrictions may apply and additional documents may be required. By the way: The Corona-Warn-App also has such a feature. Tip 3: Vaccination certificate for children A digital vaccination certificate can also be issued for children as proof of vaccination. If they do not have their own smartphone, the certificate can alternatively be saved on the parents’ mobile phone. A corresponding QR code is also required for this. Additional digital vaccination certificates can be saved using the blue and white plus symbol. The QR code can then be scanned as usual. But not only the CovPass app has hidden features, the Corona warning app also offers practical functions that not everyone knows.
