I am using my Galaxy phone to track my location in HA but my location is not updating. It still shows the phone as Home but I am currently away and have been for a number of hours.
The phone shows my correct location on Maps.
Is there a setting in HA to allow location access?
I am using Nabu Casa to connect.
Thanks.




 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

On the phone take a look at HA app -> settings -> companion app -> manage sensors




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Under Settings I don't see anything about Companion App.

Are you using the native HA app on the phone? This all needed to be done on the phone

Check the Apps permissions in the phone's settings and make sure it has location allowed and make sure "remove permissions if app is unused" is not.

 

Check location is on.

What does your phone screen look like when you click Settings in Home Assistant then?

🤷‍♂️ OK - just check your user, click on people.  Firstly make sure you have selected your device to track location for your user:

 

 

 

Then as Huckster said - check your phone settings

I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and then had the companion app settings. All working now, thanks to everyone for their help.
