Upon downloading the application, you will be asked to allow location services on your smartphone to determine your device location. This allows the app to bring up the weather for your location.
If you have the application installed on your smartphone, you may opt-out from geo-location by going to the "Settings" menu in the application and toggling location services off or simply clicking “Don’t Allow” when installing the app. Toggling location services off will disable services in the application, including severe alerts and the five day forecast.
