Post by babybull »

On my screen I am showing 2 viewers but I only have 1 accepted friend. Can someone explain to me what that means please?

Perhaps someone is watching you from the web interface. Do you have it set in your viewing settings for anyone to watch you? You might want to check those, and establish a password so someone viewing you from the web would have to enter the password to gain access.

Web interface: http://www.greenalp.com/
If you log into your account there, you can do some powerful things, like turning GPS on and off remotely, as long as the app is running on the phone (and you can set the app up in the settings to automatically launch and start when the phone is rebooted or when the app is closed from the running app shelf).

Settings in the app on your phone: Go to "View Permission" to make changes. If you select "All users" and enter a password (be sure to tap the floppy disk icon at the top to save it), you can give a web link out to anyone and they can track you, but others without the PW can't. NOTICE: The password will be visible, even in the Web address bar of the link to your page if the full link is sent, so don't use your ATM PIN or anything you use anywhere else.

By the way: If your data connection is enabled on your phone, you can start the service via web portal even if the app is not running.

I also notice a viever often.
No matter if i allowed it for nobody, guests or all.
My girlfriend experienses the Same on her Smartphone.
This is draining battery, cause we have gps on viewers only.

Hi,
Have you checked your settings in the web portal? Is the permission "View" really set to "nobody"? Otherwise I guess your friend is the viewer when when she launches her tracker (it will automatically query your location).
