La Crosse View App: Why is your App requesting my email password (hint- we're not)?
We are not requesting your email password, but we do understand that this may be confusing. The App requires setting up a user account. This is so we can group together your sensors, weather displays and your data into an account for you to view from the App. This enables you to view the data from anywhere in the world with internet access on your mobile device. The ID (or handle) used for that account is your email address. You should use another password that is different from your email account’s password. We actually don’t record your password and it’s only used in an authentication process between the App and the server. However, it is a great idea for you to use a different password for this, and any other service that might use your email address for the account, such as streaming services, airlines, hotels, social media, video conferencing, ride share and other services.
