You may have seen settings that say the Headspace app uses your location data.
Here at Headspace, we value all of our users’ privacy and are happy to provide some additional insight. Rest assured that we do not collect your exact location information (e.g. longitude and latitude).
The location data we receive provides a broader view of your location that Headspace can then use to surface specific content based on geolocation. This is also helpful for analytics as we evolve the Headspace app based on where our users are located.
Another important reason for this location sharing helps us prevent potentially fraudulent account activity. For example, if a user typically logs into the app from the US and then has many random login attempts from another country, we are able to detect this and hopefully prevent any unauthorized account usage.
