Why does BT Whole home app need your location?

Go to solution

As per the subject why does the BT Whole Home app require the location services of your phone to be turned on before it runs? 

I fail to see why this is needed. 

With all the recent furore over privacy surely this should be scrapped.

There's an FAQ on the topic here: https://btsupport.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/57899/c/8071

I think it because android requires location permissions for Apps to access the wifi network list on your phone. I guess that it needs it so it can display the list during first installation.
The FAQ says you can deny permission later so go ahead if you're worried...
