Privacy by Design Check-in and Alerting.

Integrated with the Ministry of Health for contact tracing, built to support all New Zealanders.​

Privacy by Design

Rippl doesn’t gather any personal information from users, ever. All of your check in data stays on your phone until you choose to share it. Rippl is completely private.
Scans Rippl and MOH QR Codes

The Rippl app is integrated with the Ministry of Health’s National Contact Tracing Solution and can scan Ministry of Health QR codes.

Free forever

Rippl was first developed out of a desire to help – not for profit. It will stay this way.

Can I use Rippl instead of NZ COVID Tracer?

Yes. Rippl remains a valid, free alternative to using NZ COVID Tracer. As an official Ministry of Health integration partner, PaperKite is being encouraged to continue providing Rippl for those who prefer an alternative to the government app – and for those who have older phones (Rippl runs on Android 5.0 and iOS 11.4 or later). Rippl users are still able to receive the same important alerts from the Ministry of Health as NZ COVID Tracer users.

In June 2020 the Privacy Commissioner, John Edwards, assessed and awarded Rippl the Privacy Trust Mark, joining Air New Zealand, RealMe and trademe on the honour roll.

What is the Privacy Trust Mark?

The Privacy Trust Mark award identifies products and services that the Privacy Commissioner considers to be outstanding in the way they manage personal information. The award is intended to give consumers confidence that products like Rippl have used a “privacy by design” approach, and can be trusted. The award follows a thorough review by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of the Rippl solution and the PaperKite’s privacy practices that support it.
