Chipolo will operate in the background while you use your phone in your everyday life without putting a strain on your device.
The app is made to run efficiently using minimal resources, not slowing down your phone or draining your battery while still giving you peace of mind that you won’t misplace your items.
To use the Chipolo app's key features, the app should be left running in the background of your iPhone. Shutting down the Chipolo app will stop it from working properly and limit how Chipolo can help you to find your items.
Keep your Chipolos connected to your phone by not swiping the Chipolo off the App Switcher on your iPhone.
If the Chipolo app is shut down, your Chipolos will not be able to stay connected to your phone. This means that it can’t remember the last known location of your items or send you ’Out of Range alerts’ if you leave something behind. Additionally, you will not be able to ring your phone with your Chipolo if you misplace it.
Don’t worry if you shut down the app by accident, Chipolo will let you know the app was closed through a notification. Simply opening the app from your Home Screen will make it active again, ready to help you not lose those important items.
