Why do you ask for so many permissions?

Every permission we ask for serves a purpose. In particular, we request location access in order to send real-time updates to your Companions without you having to pull your phone out of your pocket. We also request access to your phone’s sensors for automated emergency detection. This will automatically detect and notify your Companions if you may be nearing an emergency situation (you start running, your headphones get yanked out of your phone, etc.).

Rest assured that your privacy and trust are of the utmost importance to us. If you want to know more about our privacy policy, or why we ask for access to certain features, please get in touch at support@companionapp.io. We’re happy to answer any and all questions!
