Smartphone Settings while using AutoBeacon App



These Settings enable AutoBeacon App to run in the background on your phone so that it can collect your driving behavior automatically when you start driving without you having to open the App. These settings enable AutoBeacon to be unaffected by Battery optimizations in the smartphone. Also, when you are using AutoBeacon in Phone mode, apart from settings below make sure your phone Location/GPS is ON. In case you are using Beacon Mode of AutoBeacon, make sure your phone Location/GPS as well as Bluetooth is ON.
