Recently we have released our first publicly available app, named [ClaimR Auth][claimr-auth-google-play]. With ClaimR Auth, we offer a drop-in replacement to widely used multi-factor authenticator apps, such as Google Authenticator and Microsoft Authenticator.

Our app makes use of the ClaimR API to add an additional layer of security: You can limit the area in which the multi-factor authentication can be performed. This additional security measure gives you a unique method of protecting your accounts today.

Having a device in our pocket which can pinpoint our location has become the norm in the last decade. Many apps capitalize on this feature, for example to tailor the experience to the user's location, offer them navigation instructions, or record where a certain photo is taken.

In some of these cases the user can gain by manipulating their location. This makes app developers unable to use their user's location for critical applications. While less vital applications resort to accepting that some of their users are able to cheat.

In this post we will cover the impact of location fraud and how apps can integrate with ClaimR as to prevent location fraud.
