Guess not. Unless you aren't on 13.7 yet.. it was added in 13.5 but only linked to apps who made use of it.
This is standalone.. seems to be targeted to the US
Works on the Wife's which is on 13.7 , Does not work on mine which is Beta 8 14

I have the same situation.

For Android users:
The google spec requires Android v5 API v21. The Scotland app requires at least Android 6
That may determine whether MoH settle on Android 5.0 or Android 6.0 as the minimum version for their app i.e. not try and get it current app working on Android 4.x (unless they decided to do that but those users don't get the BT notification)
Surely the bluetooth notification can only work properly when everyone has their device visible to other bluetooth receivers. I don't know about others on her but I never have my phone set to visible.

And we think we've got problems ...
[UK] Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the new smartphone-based app would be available from September 24 for England and Wales, and will use QR codes to “provide an easy and simple way to collect contact details to support the NHS Test and Trace system”. ...
“The QR system is a free, easy and privacy-preserving way to check-in customers to venues, and we encourage all businesses to get involved and download and display the official NHS QR code posters,” explained managing director of the NHS COVID-19 app Simon Thompson.
Experienced my first forced log out yesterday.
I don't care if it's best practice, none of my other apps do this and this app, above all others, should make the user process as seamless as possible to encourage ongoing use.
I can see how elderly, or those not used to smart phones, could get easily 'thrown' by being directed back to a logon screen they don't recognise, esp. as many would have had family members complete the initial set up and logon process for them.
Agreed. Have had forced logout happen to me twice. Quite a hassle getting back into it so can imagine many would just stop using it.
Oblivian: So are you guys on the old version, or did the alternative workaround not happen.
It may log you out, but changelog says it will let you scan, just not access detail's or history until logged in again
And if you do and had not registered with a version supporting samsung or google vault previously, will ask if you want to save it
Apple I believe link the biometrics optionally
Changelogs are fine for people reading this thread, but try and explain one to my mum. If you don't understand technology, it looks like the app is no longer working. It's an unnecessary obstacle to using an app, the outcome of which could be the difference between life and death.
Oblivian: Take your own head out of the thread for a moment. It was a legitimate question that requires following up if not correct.
If it didn't indicate you can still scan. Then they need to be advised your device, version and what was experienced.
Change comes from getting things wrong, and trying to get fixes. Just like the other changes made, you could decide to help the developers correct it on her behalf.
Unsure what I posted that got your back up, however...
It did let me scan, but it involved extra steps outside of tbe normal routine to do so. My point is that the log out itself is enough to throw many naive users off, irrespective of what the next steps are.
Hopefully the developers are reading this. Hopefully they will remove the auto log out. I've separately provided feedback to MoH as well.
