Privacy Policy for The Beaconeer, for Android:

Revised November 2020 

Thank you for downloading The Beaconeer™ app.  In order for the app to function properly, you will need to authorize the app's access to your Camera, Contact, Phone, SMS, Storage, and Location Sensor (GPS). Instructions are below. 


On a regular basis Google Play reviews and updates the security compliance requirements of all apps within their store, to protect the privacy and security of consumers. The Beaconeer version 10 has been updated to comply with API29.


  • As a result of  Google Play's compliance requirements of app developers, when you open The Beaconeer™ pop-ups will appear requesting you to "Allow" or "Deny the app's access to the communications, storage, camera, and location features on your phone.
  • Please check "Allow".
  • However, these pop-ups will keep happening at every instance until you set your Permissions for the duration of The Beaconeer™ install on your phone!
  • To avoid constant pop-ups go to Settings / General / Apps & Notifications / App Info / Beaconeer Turbo / Permissions ... and enable all functions as shown below.





























We want to assure you that authorizing these permissions are necessary for proper functioning of The Beaconeer™. Under no circumstances do we transfer any SMS, Phone Calls, GPS Location, Image Media, without the user initiating such action or opt-in. Furthermore, when The Beaconeer™ is not in use, there is absolutely no coding that self-initiates any of the communications, storage, camera, and location features on your phone.


So, if your Beaconeer™ permissions appear like the screenshot above, you're good to go!
