FAQ: Why do I need to activate the Location services for NetSpot?

In order for NetSpot to work with Wi-Fi on Android 6.0+ it needs access to your Location services. It’s a mandatory requirement for Android apps due to recent changes in the platform.

“To access the hardware identifiers of nearby external devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi scans, your app must now have the ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION or ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION permissions”.

If the Location services are not enabled for NetSpot, there is no way for the app to access the Wi-Fi data for Android 6.0 and later.
