How Important Is Your Safer Badgers QR Code?

Your COVID-19 QR secret code represents the encryption keys used to protect your data in Safer Badgers. It is saved locally. Without these keys, your phone will not be able to unlock your test results and reported symptoms, and your building access status will not be updated.

We strongly recommend that you save your QR code now. If you don’t take this step and then reinstall the app later, you will likely lose your testing history.
