In Loco collects anonymized location data from 60 million devices, enabling mobile apps to provide location-aware services while securing the privacy of their users.
Our role in the fight against COVID-19 is to provide location intelligence to organizations on the frontlines, so that together, we can minimize the spread of the pandemic.
Through our privacy-first technology, it is now possible to study the spread of the virus, and hopefully help contain it, without mass surveillance.
To do your part, simply integrate the In Loco SDK into your app and start sending out push notifications to remind your user base to be responsible. It’s very simple.
After users opt-in, we receive location data associated with the device, not the user.
We apply encryption techniques and hashes to increase data security and privacy.
We aggregate the data and then make it available, ensuring user privacy.
Through aggregated location data, we measure the level of adherence to social isolation in Recife’s neighborhoods.
With this information, city hall is able to make educated decisions and specifically address neighborhoods that have the greatest level of activity.
We also verified the level of social isolation in the neighborhoods of the city of São Paulo, through non-individualized location data.
Based on this information the authorities can direct efforts in the most critical neighborhoods.
Air travel was the vector for the proliferation of COVID-19. See in the week of March 16 to 22, when there was already talk about social isolation, the movement of the population leaving São Paulo for other cities.
The data from the study are aggregated and do not identify any person.
We know air travel was responsible for the widespread proliferation of COVID-19. Social isolation had already been encouraged on March 16th when this time lapse was taken of people arriving at São Paulo Airport and traveling to their final destination.
