How does Flowx find my initial location?

We use the IP address of your phone to guess the location of your network provider.

Why use the IP address?

We use the IP address so we don't have to ask for location permissions. In other words, to respect your privacy. We only ask for location permissions when you turn on Travel Mode for a location.

Is the IP address location good enough?

In most cases gives a rough location down to the city level which is sufficient for Flowx. In some cases, it can be hundreds of kilometers off, but this is rare.
