GLV iOS

 

The GeoGuard Location Validator app crashes when I open it. What should I do to continue geolocating with the app?

 

Upgrade the app to the latest version if you haven’t already done so. If it still doesn’t work, please upgrade the device’s OS to iOS 15 or higher. The app is stable on iOS 15 or higher.

 

How do I geolocate with the app if I am prompted to open it many times but the geolocation is still unsuccessful?

 

Delete the app, reinstall it and try to geolocate again.

 

Is there a video tutorial on GLV configuration for iOS?

 

Yes, there is! You can find the video instructions here.

 

After I install and open the app, I open the Settings from the tutorial screenshots to go to the Location Settings for the app. However, I cannot see any option to grant location permission to the app. What should I do to grant location permission to the app?

 

Please open 'Settings' > 'GeoGuard Location Validator' > 'Location' and select 'Always': 1.png 2.png

 

While opening the app, I don’t see the 'Always Allow' option in the 'Allow GeoGuard Location Validator to access your location?' popup.

 

Due to the new location policy from iOS13 onwards, this option is no longer available. You should select the 'Allow While Using' for the app first. After that, go to device 'Settings' > 'GeoGuard Location Validator' > 'Location' > 'Always':

Why can't I use the app when I choose the 'Allow While Using' location permission in the app?

 

'Allow While Using' is not enough for the app to work properly. After selecting the 'Allow While Using', go to device 'Settings' > 'GeoGuard Location Validator' > 'Location' and select 'Always'.

 

What is the arrow pointing to the top left corner when I open the app after installing it from the AppStore?

 

The arrow pointing to the top left corner of the screen is designed to hint to the user how to go back to the browser.

Can I use the app if I have not enabled 'Push Notifications'?

 

Push Notifications must be turned ON. The app needs Push Notifications to complete the location verification process.

I missed enabling notifications permission for the app. How can I enable it?

 

Open the app, which will display a tutorial popup that will guide you to the Settings to enable notifications for the app. Please read through the guide and then tap on the Settings button and proceed with the steps.

You can also enable push notifications for the app by going to Settings > Notifications > GeoGuard Location Validator, then switch on the Allow Notifications.
I have closed the app but I still geolocate. Can it still verify my location?

 

If Push Notifications are enabled, the geolocation process should still work properly even though the app is closed. If it doesn’t, please make sure the Location Services and Push Notifications are still enabled and reopen the GeoGuard Location Validator app.
