A man who spat on a woman and verbally abused her at a Melbourne shopping centre in a disgusting attack during the coronavirus pandemic is wanted by police.

Investigators believe the brazen attack occurred while the woman was travelling on an escalator inside Chadstone Shopping Centre in Malvern East on March 20 about 9.25am.

Police are trying to identify a man who is perceived as Caucasian in appearance, aged 40-50, with a bald head.

He was wearing a blue blazer, a light-coloured shirt, dark jeans and sunglasses at the time.

Investigators have released images of a man that may be able to assist with their enquiries.

Melbourne woman panics after confusing COVIDSafe app message

Melbourne woman panics after confusing COVIDSafe app message

Confusion and privacy concerns have grown over the federal government's COVIDSafe app, with one Melbourne woman saying a puzzling message led her to believe she had contracted the virus.

Mother-of-two Holly Donovan from Frankston panicked when she thought the app had diagnosed her with coronavirus.

The message "You have tested positive for COVID-19" appeared when she tapped the button "has a heath official asked you to upload your data?".

It is not meant to tell users they have coronavirus, but instead ask them to confirm they have tested positive.

"I got a shock and then I thought people should know about this, because some people would get really panicky and go oh god I've got it," she told 9News.

It comes after a hoax text message was sent out to some users yesterday, which warned they had been detected too far from their homes.

A hoax message 'from COVIDSafe app' claims to track users, after concerns about privacy were raised.

But Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt made no apologies over the confusing design today.

About 2.44 million Australians have already downloaded and registered with the government's COVIDSafe app.

The app, which uses Bluetooth to record whether or not a user has come in close contact with coronavirus patients, would be at its best if 40 per cent of the population signed up.

Overcoming COVIDSafe download issues

"Once you download and register for CovidSafe, the app uses Bluetooth to scan for nearby users. When you spend more than 15 minutes with someone, the app will record the time, date and that person's details - the location is not recorded," Mr Hunt said.

"The data is saved in your phone for 21 days. And is only shared with your consent, after you tell the app you've tested positive."
