This article discusses use of digital contract tracing applications in France during the COVID-19 pandemic. While these apps have been created to help mitigate spread of COVID-19 by offering health advice on isolation and testing, they are not being used by the majority of the population. In May 2020, the COVID-19 Control and Society Connection Council (CLL) was established to issue advice and guidance on the national epidemic digital systems. This paper illustrates the recommendations by this committee for the improvement of these applications.
