Lack of permissions is the main reason Copper mobile fails to find a Copper device.

  1. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone.
  2. Make sure you grant 'location' permissions when prompted in Copper mobile. On Android phones, Bluetooth permissions are grouped with location permissions. If you have not seen a request for location permission or accidentally answered no, you'll need to change this through your phone OS settings.

To check permissions on an Android:

  1. Swipe down twice.
  2. Tap the gear icon.
  3. Tap 'Apps & notifications'.
  4. Tap 'See all apps'.
  5. Swipe until you see 'Copper' and tap on it.
  6. Tap on 'Permissions' and make sure 'Location' is in the Allowed list.
