Why is the SaskAlert app using so much of my battery?

The most significant use of battery power by the SaskAlert App is location updates to send you alerts for locations you travel to.

Turning off the “Follow Me” feature in the SaskAlert App will help to conserve battery power, but then you will not receive alerts as you travel to other areas in the province. 

You will still receive alerts for the locations you have manually chosen through the location setting of the SaskAlert app.
