Don’t Touch Your Face
The doctors have been told multiple times that you should not touch your faces again and again due to precautionary measures of COVID-19. This app is designed to help you in this matter.
Machine-learning algorithm identifies the when and where the person is touching on his face and alerts him if doing so. First the algorithm learns the touch and then you can leave your app open and it notifies you when you touch your face everytime.
