Home assistant phone app does not automatically update the phone's location

I installed the Home Assistant app on my phone and I have “Device Tracker Component Loaded”. My problem is that even if I leave home, it still shows me as being home.

If I click on the “one shot” location updater, it immediately shows me as “away”. But I don’t want to have to do that. Isn’t it supposed to update automatically?

In the phone’s “Privacy” settings, I have it configured as “Always allow” access to location services.

How can I have the phone automatically update it’s location in Home Assistant, without having to manually update the location using “One shot” option?


I have the same problem.

App updated to latest version. I use Android and iOS.
