Update 1.0.7 includes a host of new features and various improvements to the web app, plus new macOS, Windows 10, and iOS apps. 


New Features

Geofencing (Available only on SMB Plan and above) 

Geofencing is a brand new feature designed to improve reaction times to at-risk devices, further helping to prevent loss and theft. 

Set a virtual safe zone in a real-world geographical area, and receive an alert when a device exits or enters the designated zone. 

Additional capabilities include automatically marking a device as "Missing" when it leaves a safe zone and automatically marking it as "Secure" when it re-enters a safe zone. 

What is GeoFencing?


Messaging 

Messaging is a new addition to the macOS, Windows 10, and iOS apps and increases the functionality of our existing Spoken Messaging system (for macOS/Windows), and is a new edition entirely for iOS. 

The Spoken Message action in the Actions Menu is now named Messaging and comes with the choice of whether to send a spoken or written message for macOS/Windows, and a written message for iOS . 

When sending a written message, the message will be displayed on the device's screen the next time it connects to HiddenApp's servers.

Feature Customization (HiddenApp Business only) 

Feature Customization gives complete control to each account owner to select which types of data HiddenApp tracks for the organization's devices. For example, if your organization has a policy for location tracking but is not interested in other tracking data, it's now possible to switch off intruder-selfies/screenshots, etc. 

From the account settings, you can now choose to disable the following data collection on all devices: 

  • Location 
  • Network 
  • Data 
  • Intruder-selfie 
  • Screenshots 
  • Keylog Data

Once disabled, HiddenApp will no longer track and collect the chosen data type for all the enrolled devices in your organization's HiddenApp account.

Improvements 

Fleet View (Available only on SMB Plan and above) 

Fleet View has received a facelift and can now be found under "Fleet Tracking". 

It now has a cleaner menu, and we've added a shortcut from "Fleet View" to the "Device View" for convenience. We've also updated the device icons for pinpoint accuracy, increased the zoom capability and improved in-map navigation and focus. 


Device Enrolment 

Previously named "Device Registration", we've cleaned up and simplified the "Device Enrolment" interface. 

The enrolment flow is now categorized by platform, with single and multi-device enrolment. 

We've also included some common questions about enrolment, installation and deployment for your convenience during the enrolment process.

Location History 

We've improved "Location History" navigation by adding scroll functionality, a recent date selector, and a calendar to speed up search and find the most important events. 

We've also notably added access to more locations within the web app, increasing the available locations to 500.

Device and Location Clustering 

We improved the clustering of locations in the "Location History" and devices in "Fleet View". Clustering no longer occurs at shallow scroll depths on the map, and we've added a spidifier to show locations/devices in densely populated areas of the map. 


New Apps 

HiddenApp for macOS v3.6.1 

As well as adding support for "Messaging" and "Feature Customization", we've added support to force the Location/Camera permission with a check every 15 minutes if the permission is unchecked, the "Remote Lock" feature has also been improved, plus various under the hood performance and stability improvements. 


HiddenApp for Windows 10 v1.3.1 

We've added support for Messaging and Feature customization, as well as various performance and stability improvements. 


HiddenApp for iOS v2.1 

Additionally to adding support for "Messaging", we've added a silent notification feature to mitigate crash risk. A silent notification will be sent to the device if the HiddenApp servers haven't received a check-in from the device.
