When you create an account on dscout and start applying to missions, dscout will automatically ask for your permission to access the following things as you use the dscout app:

  • Camera
  • Location
  • Media storage
  • Microphone
  • Notifications
You can deny dscout access to any of these permissions, but the majority of them are necessary when participating in dscout opportunities. The mobile app will continue to request your permission depending on what task you’re trying to complete within the dscout mobile app.
You can also manage your app permissions manually within your mobile device’s native Settings app. Learn more below:
