Why does the location setting For FollowMee keep changing from always to while using the app every couple of days? I have to keep going to the phone and change it back to always for it to work. Is it possible to lock the setting to always permanently in an iPhone?

In iOS13, Apple has changed the phone behavior. It starts to prompt user for any background tracking app. This message will pop up every several days. Make sure to choose the "Always Allow" option when it prompts up. This is a new behavior of an iOS device and there is no workaround. For details, see this faq

This change by Apple has made the program almost impossible to use...
I have it set up as tracking and I am constantly setting the app to ALWAYS ALLOW - but of course, at some point, when my employee has the phone, it asks if he wants it to keep doing that.

If I go into a setting and select it from the settings menu - it should stay that way and leave it alone.

Very annoying...
The app was great, but I cant see paying again if I am not able to use it to track like I had in the past.
