Enhanced Privacy Filtering
Balance the needs for accurate positioning, relevant alerts and end-user privacy
With the introduction of Enhanced Privacy Filtering, the user is no longer limited to only choosing between country-level or exact location in their privacy settings. Instead, they can specify to either city or region/ state and thereby get a more personalized user experience. This setting also enables the user to receive relevant alerts based on their current location, resolving the issue of irrelevant alerts and information.
- By choosing the city level, the end-user’s location will be anonymized to a 20 x 20 km squared area.
- The region /state setting will show only what subregion the user currently is located within. Thereby, no exact GPS coordinates will be given.
- The list of subregions in the platform follows the ISO-3166-2 standard.
- To make admins aware of end-users without an up-to-date location report, those users are now represented by a striped icon. By default, the icon becomes striped after 24 hours, but that setting can easily be changed by the admin.
Privacy Settings for end-user
The end-user can easily set their own privacy level in the Safeture app.

Switching the privacy levels in the app will affect the map icons in the Security Overview once the next app location report has been sent.
