Data security and authorisations.
What permissions does SBB Mobile need and why?

Location
For connections from your current location, the GPS function must be activated so that SBB Mobile can find the nearest stop. This also applies if you want to have the nearest stop displayed in the timetable.

Calendar and e-mail
You can save connections in your own calendar and send them by e-mail (to friends, an external calendar). SBB Mobile requires read and write permissions to be able to import your desired connection into the calendar.

Access to the camera
SBB Mobile requires access to your camera to take pictures directly in the app for your personalised touch timetable.

Internet access
SBB Mobile requires internet access to search the timetable as well as for ticket purchases.

Memory
To support offline functions, e.g. station/stop list, connections (history) and purchased tickets, SBB Mobile requires access to your device’s memory (saving app-specific settings).

The app has definitely made life back in Switzerland easier. I'm only frustrated that no matter what I do it wont update to the fact that I did not buy the half tax pass again, and so the prices don't update properly. I almost got a ticket and was lucky that the train conductor took the issue as a misunderstanding. Crossing fingers that uninstalling and reinstalling will do the trick because I do love this app!

Hi there. Thank you for your feedback. 7 days after expiration of the Half-Fare travelcard should it display the prices correctly. The problem is known and we are working on a solution. Workaround: You can register yourselfas a new traveller without discount and then use this traveller for the 7 days to buy tickets without discount. Kind regards.

This app made my travel in Switzerland so simple! I had a 2-week Swiss Rail Pass, so I wasn't using the ticket purchase feature of the app, but for routes and schedules it was perfect. I especially liked knowing the platform I'd arrive on and depart from, and if the train was running behind schedule. Without this app, I would have not been able make last minute decisions on where to go next. Traveling Switzerland was a wonderful experience!

Current version gets my location faster than previous, but it still doesn't handle my phone switching to battery saving during an Easy Ride. When that happens it appears as if I hadn't started the easy ride at all (imagine the stress during a control before I learned the workaround) and it can't find location anymore (google maps works fine in parallel all time). The only way is to force stop the app from system settings, and start it again, and this time it works even with battery saving on.
