Eufy App on iOS - Disable the location requirement

Ever since I have upgraded to iOS 13 and with recent Eufy App upgrade, Eufy Apps keeps nagging about enabling the Location Services whenever I add a new device, eufy

I usually keep this disabled and even if enabled, it is only for Maps / Google Maps and dont want any apps to access my location.

@AnkerSupport @AnkerTechnical can you please mention why the location services are required for setup? Can this be completely be disabled?

I know at least couple more apps that don’t ask me for location services when I try to add new smart device, why Eufyhome then?

At least I’m not getting this on eufy security app. I have other issues with eufysecurity. It randomly log me out of the app and asks for login credentials. Not sure what prompts it to do that.
