Instant Spot Alerts - iOS

For activating the Instant Spot Alerts, you will need to have location services activated for the Streetspotr app on your mobile device. By activating the location services for the app, you will be able to take advantage of Spots that use geofencing. In essence, geofencing is an invisible fence that when entered, exited, or both can trigger the ability to take part in a Spot. This Spot is otherwise invisible, so to be able to do this type of Spot, you need to have these services activated. Below we have provided the steps you need to take to turn the services on...

1) Open the Streetspotr App on your mobile

2) Along the bottom row of icons you will see gear shaped icon which, when clicked on, will redirect you to the settings for the app - Click on this icon :)

3) Look for the tab that says 'Notifications'.

4) Directly below the 'Notifications' tab you will see something titled 'Instant Spot Alerts' - Make sure this is turned on.

5) Click on the small 'i' icon next to 'Instant Spot Alerts' - Here you will find information about the instant Spot alerts and how we use it (No, we aren't tracking your whereabouts constantly. We promise!)

6) Scroll down and click on the button that says 'Settings'

7) Click on the tab that says 'Location'

8) Switch your setting to 'Always'


We understand that in this day in age, there is often concern (fair and rightly so) about tracking, recording, and storing of personal information. We here at Streetspotr take your personal information extremely seriously and want you to know that your data will never be sold to a third party. Also, under no circumstances are we tracking your whereabouts 24/7. The purpose of the tracker is to allow us to integrate a new type of Spot which you to go into the tasks without any preconceived notions about what we are expecting. As we will be integrating more and more of these "hidden Spots" it is to your benefit to leave the settings on all the time so that you are alerted once you have entered/exited a geofenced Spot and are able to accept the Spot.
