We require location permissions so that in an emergency we can send an approximate GPS location to your emergency contacts. We will only ever use your location in an emergency, and at no other time.
You will be prompted to allow these permissions when you try to connect your Protect.
To edit your permissions manually:
Open your phone settings -> Open the Tended app -> Tap permissions -> Toggle location on.
NOTE: If you are using a device on Android 6 (marshmallow) or above we require location for bluetooth connection. This is due to the way Android handles bluetooth scanning.
