In order for the Findd application to work on your device, certain permissions must be granted to the Findd app.

This article will review what permissions need to be enabled and how to do so.

List of Permissions

  • Location - This allows the Findd app to check the device's location. This is important to check for locations exceptions and to set the device location.

  • Camera - This allows the Findd application to access the camera. Without this enabled, facial recognition will not work.

  • Cellular Data/Wifi - In order for the device to upload punches, the device needs to be connected to the network. If the Cellular Data is not enabled, or if the device is not connected to wifi, the punches will still be recorded on the device but they will not upload to the Grandd Central. As soon as the device reconnects, the punches will be uploaded.

How to Enable Permissions

Android
