Why does Portero ask permission to use Location Services in the background?
Portero uses your iPhone’s Location Services to monitor and log arrival and departure times for the Portals you have defined. In order for Portero to function as promised and provide a stable, reliable and consistent user experience, it must be able to process this location information in real time, even when you are not actively using the app. It is thereore essential to Portero’s functionality that it always has access to Location Services, even when it is closed and running in the background.
