Non-Boomer Proximity Alert

For humans

An app that beeps loudly when another person with a cellphone is closer than 6 feet.

Alarm volume varies based on the installed app base the invader of personal space approaches -- they have Outlook? lower -- TikTok? Much higher.

And of course louder based on how close they've been to other humans in previous 24 hours.
