How it works 

For Customers

Keep your data in your hands with Rippl
You never share any personal data with Rippl, and all of your check in data stays on your phone until you choose to share it. Rippl is completely private. 

Stay safer with contactless check in
With Rippl you avoid the need to sign in with a pen, or touch anything other people have touched. Just scan a QR code at your favourite local business and you’re good to go.

Help Kiwi businesses stay in business. 
Rippl enables you to safely and responsibly get back to visiting your favourite cafes, restaurants, and bars - helping to preserve our communities so we can all get back to normal as quickly as possible. 

Scan Rippl and MOH QR Codes
The Rippl app is compliant with Ministry of Health guidelines and can scan MOH QR codes just as easily as Rippl QR codes.

5. Check Out

Customers: Use the Rippl app to check out when you leave the business.

6. Built-in Alerts

Customers:If there’s any reason that you need to confirm that you were checked in at a business, you will be alerted by the app and given advice on next steps.

Rippl now free for for everyone!

PaperKite has decided to make Rippl free for everyone. Let's get back to business as soon as we can.

“We needed a secure tool for contact tracing which was easy to set up and use, which protected people's information and privacy. So we have partnered with PaperKite to use Rippl across most Council services.”

Mayor Andy Foster
Wellington City Council

John Christie
Enterprise Dunedin Director

‘‘We’re trying to make it easier for businesses; we know it’s a tough time. We were conscious of the need to get this out quickly - we want them to be up and trading. This helps with that.”

Our registration system is currently under scheduled maintenance and will be available again at 3:00pm NZT

On Wednesday 24th of June the Privacy Commissioner 
(John Edwards) assessed and awarded Rippl 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.

If you are a business then at this point you will need to obtain a NZ COVID Tracer QR code. This is a mandatory requirement. 

Because the NZ COVID Tracer app doesn’t scan Rippl codes, we are also recommending that all sites; businesses, not for profits, schools, sports clubs, council controlled organisations etc take down their Rippl posters and replace these with the Government QR poster. You can get a NZ COVID Tracer QR code here

Can I use Rippl instead of NZ COVID Tracer?

Yes. Rippl remains a valid 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).

Will I receive alerts when the Ministry of Health needs to contact me?

Yes the same alerts are sent to Rippl users as NZ COVID Tracer users.

How does the new iBeacon-powered Auto Check-In work?

We are currently trialling Auto Check-In using iBeacons at a few select venues in Wellington. Rippl users need to opt-in on the Settings screen within Rippl. Once auto-check-in is enabled then the app listens for special Rippl beacons (small transmitting devices) and when one is detected it notifies the user and checks them in. As with all Rippl check-ins, no data ever leaves the phone during this process.
