5. Make sure that Hövding App is running

Hövding App has to be open (or running in the background) on the phone during your trips. If you force close Hövding App you must open it again, for your trips to be registered and your ICE contacts to be notified – in the case of an accident.

NOTE: ICE contacts (In Case of Emergency) can be added in the app. For instructions, see Add ICE contacts.
