What permissions does dscout ask for?

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 also manage your app permissions manually within your mobile device’s native Settings app. Learn how to do this for Android devices here and for iPhones here.

Pro tip: You can deny dscout access to any of these permissions, but the majority of them are necessary when applying to and participating in missions. The mobile app will continue to request your permission depending on what task you’re trying to complete within the dscout mobile app.
