I keep getting asked about location tracking. Why is this?

Recently, phone companies have taken extra measures to ensure your privacy. This includes sending frequent requests to confirm your approval for apps to use your location.  As the Voyent Alert! mobile app can use your location, you may see this warning appear for Voyent Alert!.

Voyent Alert! uses your location in order to provide the most accurate information in an emergency.  If you are using the mobile app, sharing your location allows the system to identify if you enter an area with an active alert and send you the associated notification.
