It will be, rest assured of that. They're getting PII and location data, there's no way they won't hoover that up and try to monetize it later in some way or another.

You don't need location data to know if people have been in contact. It doesn't matter where they were, the app is indicating contact and that is what you're supposed to be looking for.
