Why should I allow positioning in the Safeture Mobile Application?

In order to receive relevant alerts based on your location, you need to always allow the Safeture Mobile Application to use your location services. If your organization has integrated the Safeture Platform with an assistance provider, always allowing the Safeture Application to use your location will enable the assistance provider to help you wherever you are, when you are in need of assistance.

To receive alert information with the highest level of accuracy, a fundamental prerequisite is to have your phone location settings set to always allowing the app to access location information, as well as having it set to Exact location information. In order to accommodate your privacy preferences the detailed location settings can always be changed in the mobile application. In the mobile application, you can decide to switch off the services of the app (i.e. completely turn off notifications and positioning), or you can switch off exact positioning (i.e. decide only to provide information on what City or Region/State you are located in). 

How do I, as an Android user, activate positioning in my phone settings?

Navigate to your phone’s settings

Choose one of the following paths

  • Go to “Location”, then click on “App permissions” and select “Safeture”. 
  • Go to “Apps”, select “Safeture” and then click on “Permissions”. 

Select option “Allow all the time”

To get proper real time alerts and personalized incident feed, you must have location access set to allow all the time.
