Please make it stop! Location setting pop up

I cannot open Ibotta anymore without a persistent, annoying pop-up asking me to change my location setting from "while app is open" to "always on." Steam is coming out of my ears! "Always on" is nosy and drains my battery. I do not use the Ibotta alt apps that use location tracking to spam me with offers. I am just not interested in unplanned shopping. 

I will also send in a ticket of course, but ignoring me when I have already said only "while app is on" is rude.

This in addition to removing 100% of my *edit* midweek, weekend and monthly bonuses in October is forcing me back to Rakuten for my online shopping.

Ok so I'm being told that our version 6.108 has this issue fixed and should be going out sometime this week.

Sorry you are having trouble with the app.  Unfortunately, I don't have a solution for your issue.

As for the removal of your tier bonuses, these were tied to Teammates which was removed on October 1st for everyone.  The amounts were very low for the amount of effort required.  Hopefully, Ibotta will add better bonuses to replace them.

@LaraL  I have the same problem. Every time I open the app, location pops up.

@mmoore01 Thank you for your attempt to assist but I was never involved with Teammates and was not referring to those monies.

I was referring to midweek, weekend and monthly bonuses 👍 I have edited my OP for clarity.

Hi @SantaFeAtBay,

When did this start? I already passed it along but I'm sure they're going to ask how long it's been happening for.

Same. I don’t think apple devices have it but all android devices seem to have it and it has been around for months and months now, at least 4-6.

Ok, I'll add that as a note. I might reach out for more information, depending on what they say. I'll update this thread though.
