PrivacyRules exclusive interview with Tina3D, the company that developed the Korean app “Corona 100m” to trace covid-19

South Korean Corona 100m app has been used as a model in many continents and rose a lot of attention in international media.

CINCINNATI, OHIO, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 / — PrivacyRules is pleased to announce the release of an exclusive interview with Bae Won Seok, Director of Development of TINA3D. TINA3D ( is the South Korean tech and entertainment company that developed Corona 100m, the tracing app to help prevent the spread of the corona virus. Covid-19 tracing apps are still under development in many countries all around the world, and are rising issues in relation to the precarious balance between upholding privacy of the individuals and benefits to public health. South Korean Corona 100m app has been used as a model in many continents and rose a lot of attention in international media.

“Interviewing Bae Won Seok was enlightening, as we could clarify some of the most controversial issues his app rose. For instance, Corona 100m uses covid-19 visitation point data which is freely available data provided by the South Korean government” says Andrea Chmieliński Bigazzi, PrivacyRules CEO. “In fact, TINA3D has developed the app to help prevent the spread of the corona virus throughout Korea just by using publicly accessible data” he concludes.

“In many media reports abroad, our app is wrongly known as collecting users' location points which is incorrect information” says Bae Won Seok in the interview. The Corona 100m has been downloaded by nearly 4 million people in South Korea, and is widely recognised as one of the most successful apps created worldwide to prevent the spread of covid-19.
