Frequently Asked Questions
What is BarGlance?
It's a nightlife platform that connects bar with bar-goers through real-time info.
Where is the app available?
BarGlance works any place that has a nightlife scene. If we don't have your favorite bar or area listed, shoot us a message and we'll add it.
Why can't I find bars on the map?
The Bar Map is dynamic, so it highlights nightlife activity in real-time. Zooming in further will populate all the bars in that area.
Why don't all the bars have cameras?
While we would love for all of our partner bars to have live cameras, not all of them choose to do so. And that's cool too! We promote them in the app, regardless.
Are you concerned about privacy issues?
Privacy laws were something we addressed in the very beginning, even before building BarGlance 1.0. We are extremely mindful of issues pertaining to privacy, both legally and culturally. The safety and privacy of bar-goers and end-users is something we take very serious.
Where is a user's location visible on the map?
User's who have their visibility setting turned on are only shown at a bar. Once you leave the bar, your location will disappear from the map.
How do I change my visibility setting in the app?
In your profile, select the gear icon in the top right corner. Then go to Visibility Settings.
Why does the app show that I'm in a bar when I'm not?
One reason might be that the app was open before going to, and while at the bar, but closed out before leaving the bar. In this case, the app will automatically remove a user from a bar after a period of 2 hours.
