2019 TX HHS HIPAA violation, CMS 2019 breach, 2019 DBHDS breach, etc...How safe is a cheap app?

If my health information is not safe/secure, it is very doubtful EVV will be.  With just two location/clock in/out posted a day (my attendant does way more than two), that is my daily locations/habits up for grab!  I am very afraid of home invasion,etc..  I am handicapped, so it is of HIGHEST IMPORTANCE that I am not targeted by the bad guys, because if I am, I am a sitting duck!
