Frequently Asked Questions

What permission does the Android app need?

For Android 10 and up, the app requires the following permissions. You can assign permission by going to Settings -> Apps -> FollowMee -> Permissions.
  • Location: allow all the time
  • Physical activity: enable

The required location permission is "allow all the time". Changing to "allow only while using the app" will stop the app from tracking in the background.

For Android 6 to 9, the app requires the following permissions.
  • Location: required
  • Phone (read phone state): optional

Permission to read phone state is optional. This permission enables the app to read the device IMEI for identification purpose. This will ensure the server to restore your device if you reinstall the app. The app will still function fully even if you don't grant this permission.
