Why we need your location information…

News, Support

Since iOS 13, Apple has disallowed developers from obtaining the name of the currently connected Wifi network unless the user has explicitly opted-in to location sharing. While these two elements may seem unrelated, they are part of a greater push to preserve your privacy.

We don’t need to actually know where you are to run IP Scanner and we don’t actually obtain this information, we are obliged to request access in order to enable read-access to your connected Wifi network. In turn, this is essential for saving custom devices names and badges.
