TimeTec TA App Detects Mock Location to Prevent Fraudulent Activities

Wednesday, December 14, 2016 TimeTec 0 Comments

Security settings in TimeTec TA App has been enhanced with the latest Mock Location detection function. How does it work? It’s simple. When the phone detects that mock location is enabled, TimeTec TA App will log out automatically. The only way to keep TimeTec TA App stays open is to not use any mock location program in the phone.

For example, when a user has a mock location in his mobile phone, setting a location in New Delhi, India when the actual user location is somewhere else, he will not be able to select clocking in TimeTec TA App as an error message will be shown and the system will automatically logout when the user presses an error message exit button.

This feature is available for Android phone only because for iOS phones, the system does not support mock location, by default.

This feature eliminates the possibility of fraudulent employee behavior such as faking GPS locations. Such program is available out there,  tricking Android into thinking that you’re at a location where you actually aren’t. With the new update for TimeTec TA App, users will only be allowed to use a real time location, for more accurate reporting.
