Check C19 – Here is the app to read green passes and avoid counterfeits – this is how the app works

Faced with the risk of false Green Passes (also sold on social networks) Palazzo Chigi, from its twitter account relaunches the application created ad hoc to verify the certification of the certificate. “Green certification: how to easily recognize the authentic one”, is the Prime Minister’s tweet that, in a short infographic, explains how the application works. It’s called “c19 Verification”, it works by scanning the Green Pass QR Code, and it’s free.

Green pass controls also in the workplace

As of October 15, the App “VerificationC19” or the new tools provided by the Dpcm will be able to be used for controls in the workplace, which will allow a “daily and automated” verification, highlighting only the possession of the pass and no elevated employee data. It is possible to integrate the QR code reading system with the turnstiles or with the temperature detection devices already present in the companies and the software will communicate -with an asynchronous interaction- directly with the national platform that issues the green pass: through ‘ NoiPà by public bodies that adhere to this platform or with the INPS portal for entrepreneurs with more than 50 employees, both public and private, or, finally, with personnel management information systems for those public administrations that have at least a thousand employees.

With the obligation of the green pass for some activities, controls will also come. As of August 6, the green passport, which is obtained once you have a vaccination certificate (issued 15 days after the first dose and valid until the second or after the second dose and valid for 9 months), with the certificate of cure (valid for 6 months) and with the negative result of a tampon made in the previous 48 hours – it will be necessary for indoor restaurants, outdoor shows, spas, swimming pools, gyms, fairs, congresses and competitions, bars but not for counter consumption, even if it is indoors.

Therefore, checks will be necessary to verify the validity and authenticity of the green certificates that citizens will be able to present both on paper and in digital version. The verifications will be carried out through the VerificationC19 application, developed by the Ministry of Health through SOGEI.

What is the enhanced green pass?

From December 6 to January 15, it is necessary to have a “reinforced” green pass, that is, a green vaccination or cure pass, in the white zone to access shows, sporting events, indoor catering, parties and discos, public ceremonies.

Those who already have a green pass for vaccination or recovery do not need to download a new Certification. The VerificationC19 application will acknowledge its validity.

In the yellow or orange zone, as of November 29, those who have a reinforced green pass will be able to access activities and services that would otherwise be limited or suspended. From November 29 to December 5 in the yellow and orange zone, checks can be made on the paper Certification.

Yes, a new COVID-19 Green Certification is issued and you will receive a message with a new AUTHCODE code by SMS or email. If you do not receive it within 48 hours after vaccination, you can try retrieve it independently on this site.

New Certifications for the “third dose” (also called “booster dose” or “booster dose”) and “second dose” for the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine or post-recovery vaccine are issued within 48 hours after vaccination and, as of December 15, 2021, they are valid for 9 months from the date of administration.

As of November 12, 2021, the new green pass booster vaccines are issued indicating in the “number of doses carried out / total number of doses planned for a complete vaccination cycle”:

  • * 2 of 2 in the case of booster after a single dose vaccine (Janssen);
  • * 2 of 2 in the case of a single booster dose after Covid-19 recovery;
  • * 3 of 3 in the case of a booster after the end of the first vaccination cycle with two doses or in the case of a booster for people vaccinated abroad with a vaccine not authorized by the EMA.

Green pass, how the C19 Verification application works

The VerificationC19 application can only be used by “verifiers”, or those in charge of controlling COVID-19 green certifications: those who provide services for which certification is required, organizers of events and activities to participate in those who have the same certification and Public officials are required in the exercise of the corresponding functions.

The process of using the verification application is divided, in particular, into the following phases: the verifier requests the certification from the interested party, who displays the corresponding QR Code (in digital or paper format). The application reads the QR code, extracts the information and proceeds with the authenticity verification verifying the digital signature and then graphically shows the verifier the real authenticity and validity of the certification, as well as the name, surname and date of birth of the ‘holder and its unique identifier. The owner, at the request of the verifier, exhibits a valid identity document in order to verify the correspondence of the personal data present in the document with those shown by the application. The app will not store all the sensitive data contained in the green pass regarding privacy.
