How do I enable required permissions for the Windows 10 app?

The Universal Windows Platform (UWP) store app requires the following two permissions when you open it for the very first time. If you missed them earlier, you can correct them by using the start menu, right click FollowMee and select "More" -> "App Settings". Enable both permissions.
  • Location: You can enable by Start Menu -> Settings -> Privacy -> Location. In this screen, you need to enable Location for the device and the FollowMee app.
  • Background Apps: You can enable by Start Menu -> Settings -> Privacy -> Background Apps. In this screen, you need to enable Background Apps for the device and the FollowMee app.
The desktop app does not ask for permissions when you open it for the very first time. But it requires that location setting for the device is enabled. If it is disabled, the app does not work. Go to Start Menu -> Settings -> Privacy -> Location. In this screen, turn on "Location for this device".
