“LeaveHomeSafe” system ceases operation

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) yesterday (January 8) announced that the “LeaveHomeSafe” app system has ceased operation.

 The announcement said that  following the relaxation of different anti-epidemic measures, the resumption of normal travel of Hong Kong and the Mainland in a progressive, orderly and comprehensive manner,  as well as the resumption of normalcy of public’s daily lives,  the “LeaveHomeSafe” system has ceased operation and the app will not be further updated.

The “LeaveHomeSafe” telephone hotline (2626 3066) and the mobile support stations at 25 MTR stations for supporting the Vaccine Pass measure also stopped operation from today onwards.

Also, the OGCIO has received instruction from the Department of Health to delete all visit records in the system previously uploaded from “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile app of confirmed cases.

The deletion has been completed.

Likewise, members of the public who have downloaded the “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile app may keep it in the mobile phones should they wish to make use of some of its functions (such as the PCR Testing Registration Code).
