Vodaphone DreamLab offers a similar platform for donating CPU time, including for COVID-19 research. If you're not already running BOINC on your phone, give DreamLab a try.

I was able to use the Android app on my Moto x4 in the United States without issue for months as a "back up" for when World Community Grid wasn't offering Android tasks. I will say I removed the app recently as it had been crashing but that could have been for any number of reasons and for all I know it's been updated/fixed. Unlike BOINC you don't need to create a login, which for someone who just wants to help via mobile without tracking stats makes for easy trial setup.

I'm not sure I'd use this on my primary phone, just because of heat and battery issues even though it only runs when plugged in... BUT, I did have 2 older phones that I should have recycled long ago in my desk drawer. They are now setup to run this on the corona project 24/7. If those older phones die no big deal.

I set mine to use 3-4 cores, and it barely gets warm. It gets way hotter when I'm bored and play stuff on it. I'm a bit concerned about the disk writing tho. Not sure how much each WU writes to the phone's storage.
