Description: During the COVID-19 pandemic, one way to reduce further transmissions of SARS-CoV-2 is the use of contact-tracing apps. We analyze potential barriers to the large-scale adoption of the official contact-tracing app that was introduced in Germany on June 16, 2020. With probability-sample data collected from 3,276 adults during the same week, we estimate that 81.3% of the population aged 18-77 possess the devices and ability to install the official app and 34.9% are also willing install and use it. Potential spreaders show high access (91.8%) and ability (90.7%) but low willingness (31.0%) of app adoption, whereas for vulnerable groups the main barrier is access (62.4%).
