Miradore Online client got your location in the background on September 8th, 2020

Updated on February 11th, 2021

Users of Android 10 or 11 devices may see a notification saying “Miradore Online client got your location in the background” even when the location tracking would not be used.

This does not always mean that Miradore would track the device location. Miradore will track device location only if site administrator enables the location tracking feature.

This notification can also pop up even when location tracking is disabled, because Miradore’s Android Client collects inventory data including the mobile cell ID and a list of configured WiFi networks, and this activity triggers the above notification on Android 10 and 11 devices.
