We may change this policy at any time. When we do, we will change the “Last Updated” date above and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as by providing additional notice via our Services or by sending you a notification).
In order for the LifeSaver App to function properly certain permissions are requested when installing the App. Summary of App permissions requested and why:
- Location Services – Needed to detect driving so that LifeSaver can lock.
- Contacts – Used only to provide text alerts to the specified contact.
- Access to other Apps Running (Android Only) – Used only to determine if other apps are permitted to run when LifeSaver is locking.
- Request to ignore battery optimization – Used to prevent doze modes which can interfere with allowing LifeSaver to work properly in the background or with display off.
- Microphone (iPhone Only) – Used only if you turn on the silencing feature for inbound notifications (this feature is defaulted off when you install LifeSaver).
