About this app

Hauk lets you share your location in real-time with friends and family for a specified period of time. Meeting up with someone? Send them a Hauk link, and they can follow your location live on a map until you arrive to meet them.

This app requires that you have installed the Hauk backend on a server. Please see https://github.com/bilde2910/Hauk for backend installation instructions.

Required permissions:

* ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - for getting your location, so that it can be shared
* FOREGROUND_SERVICE - for keeping the share running when the app is minimized
* INTERNET - for communicating with your Hauk backend server

Hauk does not share your location data to anywhere except the Hauk backend server you specify within the app. A unique link will be generated for your location share when you start sharing; anyone with this link will be able to see your location in real-time for as long as you are sharing.

17 August 2023: The app and developer is still alive. Developer just updated it and it continues to be the best non google or "de-googled" live gps app available. Version: 1.6.2 Zero trackers June 9 2021: Fantastic!

Interesting project. Giving it 5 starts because the demo was easy to follow and worked the first time. Keep up the great work y'all.
