What information does the Mobile Handshake send?

The Mobile Handshake is based on the standardized Geolocation API created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Depending on your device, GPS, IP addresses, or WiFi positions may be used to determine your location. When you launch the Mobile Handshake, your phone will send information letting our servers know where you are to make it easier for you to expand your network. Your personal data is protected at all times.
