How to Verify if the Geofencing Alert is Valid

Introduction

This guide will help you confirm if the Verification Alert is valid. First, please check the permitted geofence radius set in your company. See link: https://support.justlogin.com/hc/en-us/articles/360033178432-How-to-set-up-Geofencing-

In this scenario, let us take the geofence radius is set to 150 meters only.

In this case: 1.42799081,103.836199

Step 11: Go back to the tab or browser in Step 6, input the coordinates in Step 10 at Point #2.

It will show the total distance. In this scenario, the distance is 3km, and it's beyond 150m, therefore the alert is valid.
