We don't ever collect your physical location or GPS information, and do not share or sell your data to third parties.
In order for Touch to Unlock to work reliably, the Openpath app needs Location Services always enabled. The app doesn't actually use your physical location, but rather Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), which iOS and Android consider as part of their Location Services.
On iOS devices: The Openpath app also uses Motion Services in order to detect if a phone is in motion – if it is stationary, the Openpath background service will shut down in order to conserve battery. If the app detects the phone is moving, the Openpath service will resume in order to communicate with any nearby Openpath readers.
Logging data: Openpath does not log the geolocation or GPS of your phone. We temporarily log motion data on iOS devices and can only receive that data if you Send Feedback via the app for troubleshooting purposes.
If you'd rather not enable these features, you can still unlock entries on iOS devices by using Touch to Unlock with the Openpath app open and Bluetooth turned on. On Android devices, Touch to Unlock won't work if Location Services is turned off regardless if the app is open or not, but you can still use the app to unlock entries by tapping on the lock icons next to the entries.
Note: For devices running Android 10, you may need to set location permissions to Allow all the time in order for onsite unlocks to work.
