The app uses your location to mark attendance based on the set longitude and latitude set by the organisation. The app will require your permission to use your location to check if you are within the perimeter set by your employer. Once, you allow and give permission, you as an employee can clock in, take breaks and clock out once the application detects your device is out of the allowed perimeter. If you do not allow access to your location, you will not be able to use the mobile to clock in or out. We do not share your location with any third-party. It is solely used for the purpose of marking your work attendance and timesheet.
