Thanks to @Panki for mentioning this on the Discord server.

All Olympic athletes are REQUIRED to install this app. Github user "jonathandata" managed to decompile the Android and iOS apps and gathered all the info on Github: https://github.com/jonathandata1/2022_beijing

Now to me the most interesting bit is the banned words/terms. As expected "Tienanmen" is in the list 43 times.
Classic censorship from China.

Apparently, this has hit western news as well. Most olympic team captains advise their competitors to simply not bring a smartphone.

Our Olympic committee told all contestants to not bring their own phone, the will provide one for them.
