If the app for your church is on version 4.10+ for iOS or 3.8.0+ for Android, you will be asked to allow the app to access your location (see screenshots for examples).
The app is requesting this access to allow for geographic based notifications (coming soon). By allowing the app to access your location, you can ensure you’ll receive notifications sent based on location, and thus you can stay up to date with news and information from your church!
Tip! We recommend not only allowing the app to access your location but choosing Always Allow if on iOS. If you only allow the app to access your location when using the app, you’ll miss out on notifications scheduled to trigger when arriving at or leaving your church.
If you have already been using your churches app, you will see this prompt once the app is updated to include the new geographic based notification system. If you don't see this prompt appear, the app may not be updated — check with your church leadership to be sure.
