Gatha FAQ


What is the Gatha App?2018-02-28T17:38:22+00:00

Gatha is a secure, real time geolocation tracking tool that businesses can use for connecting and communicating with customers & clients, as well as for managing employees. Gatha can also be used to securely share your location with family and friends, to schedule events and monitor the arrival of guests.

Is Gatha secure? Does it protect my privacy?2018-03-02T16:38:47+00:00

Gatha uses state of the art, two way, military-grade encryption technology to protect your information always. Your privacy is of utmost importance to us!

How does Gatha know my location?2018-03-02T16:44:35+00:00

Just like many of the GPS type apps you use today, Gatha uses the GPS in your phone to plot your location on the map for your gatherings. In order to use Gatha optimally, make sure that:

  •        Your location services are turned on for your phone
  •        Location services for the Gatha app are turned on
  •        Your location toggle is set to ‘on’ for any Gathering that you’re at when you want to see others and be seen by others at the Gathering.

Of course – click the “People” icon at the bottom of the home screen, then tap the “Show/Hide” tab at the top of the screen – then select the level of visibility you want to provide (if any) with any given person.  You can choose between letting them know you are in attendance, or share your exact location – it’s completely up to you!

How can I stop sharing my location?2018-03-02T17:04:00+00:00

To stop sharing your location in a single Gathering, set the location toggle to “off” for that specific Gathering.

To stop sharing your altogether, click on your profile (bottom right icon), then touch  “Hide Me Now” from the menu.  If you change your mind later, just touch this button again to toggle back to “Show Me Now”. This option is helpful if you are in multiple Gatherings at the same time, since you don’t have to manually stop sharing your location in each separate gathering.
