We require the microphone permission so that in the event of an emergency, your emergency contact can call your phone and enable loudspeaker, allowing you to get help easier and quicker. This is the only time the microphone would be used.
If you do not enable the microphone permission, your trusted contacts will not be able to speak to you during an emergency. We strongly recommend allowing them.
If it's not enabled correctly we will remind you before you start an activity.
To edit your permissions:
Open Tended app -> Tap on the cog icon -> Tap live audio -> Tap yes -> Tap confirm -> Tap allow.
(if you have denied showing notifications again before)
Open your phone settings -> Open the Tended app -> Tap permissions -> Toggle microphone on -> Open Tended app -> Tap on the cog icon -> Tap live audio -> Tap yes -> Tap confirm -> Tap allow.
