The LifeSaver app works slightly differently on iPhones than it does on Androids due to restrictions Apple imposes on iOS developers. As such, when a driver is driving, is inside the lock screen on their iPhone, and does not have the LifeSaver app pulled up, a banner notification will persist at the top of the phone.
The banner is a warning to the driver that the app has detected that they are driving and using their phone. If they do not go back to the LifeSaver app, or locked their phone, they will receive a violation.
If the banner comes up, and you are actually a passenger in the vehicle, you may have the option to use the passenger unlock feature. This needs to be enabled by the administrator in your group. There are two ways to designate that you are a passenger in the vehicle.
To use the passenger unlock on iPhones:
- Bring up the LifeSaver app on your phone.
- Tap the Passenger Unlock button on the LifeSaver blue screen.
- When you see the "Keep your eyes on the road" banner appears, pull down on that banner.
- Once pulled down, tap the "Passenger Unlock" button.
Any time the passenger unlock is used the system will clear all violations for that drive, even if a violation was incurred before the passenger unlock was activated. This clearing happens on the server about once per hour. You may see a violation within that time but it will be cleared if there’s a passenger unlock, and no points will be taken away from your driving score.
