Aargya Setu works on the basis of Bluetooth and location data of smartphones and then can track the users who have been around the coronavirus infected patients. If anyone has been contacted with a patient of COVID-19, that user's data will be shared with the government through the app.

It also states a clear privacy policy that no third parties can know the user's data. It specifies:

"Your data will be shared only with the Government of India. The app does not allow your name and mobile number to be disclosed to the public at large at any time."
