Why do Eargo Apps require this?
Eargo apps requires a cellular data or WiFi internet connection to authenticate your connected Devices. It also allows the mobile app to maintain communication with and transfer data to and from our remote server.
This function is necessary as it allows the Eargo app to:
Display helpful device information (e.g. Charger Battery level, serial numbers, etc.).
Send you important notifications and alerts (e.g. Cleaning reminders, 30-Day Tutorial content, etc.)
Access resources hosted on external websites such as www.eargo.com (e.g. Eargo Watch and Learn videos, Help articles, User Guide, etc.)
Connect users to Eargo Support by phone, email, and chat.
Schedule and later access in-app Video Call support with an Eargo Client Care Coordinator or Personal Hearing Professional when needed.
Update your Hearing Device(s) and/or Charger(s) through remote Software Updates when available.
Update your Hearing Device(s) settings via remote programming when sent from your Eargo Personal Hearing Professional.
Update and personalize your Hearing Device(s) settings after completing Sound Match for Eargo 5 or Eargo 6.
Add new or replacement devices to your Eargo system when needed.
Share valuable device usage information with your Eargo Personal Hearing Professional to improve your experience through more personalized and efficient telecare support when needed.
