I’m sorry, but I don’t think the contact tracing based on SMS, the 1922 SMS method, “gives up” privacy. Arguably, it’s designed so that you do not have to give private information like your contact number to the venues that you check in. It’s privacy-preserving, not privacy-encroaching. Even the telecom operators that received those SMS numbers doesn’t know which venue those 15 digits correspond to.
