Re: Why does the Android app require location permissions?[ New ]
Heads up to anyone using Android 10:
I've been using Android 10 since the first day it was released(Pixel 3XL) and have seen this same exact notification for at least 7 other apps, including AirBnB, Snapchat, Instagram, etc...so it's definitely not just a GoPro app thing.
It seems to be a thing that's just happening across all Android 10 apps which empowers you to set the permissions that you prefer. You can have a look at this article to understand what the GoPro app uses location services for specifically.
Pretty simple fix - tap on the notification when it appears and select "Allow only while using the app". You're done!
