It is possible to lend Inceptors via the app to anyone who has the app and wishes to try them. A user in possess of the app, the Inceptors, and an account that has scanned the QR code coming in the original Inceptor box is able to control the sharing of his/her device(s) via the app.


If the device has to be shared with a friend that didn’t download the app:

  2. Create an email or facebook account or retrieve Tactical Map account as explained in this article if the case is one of a former Tactical Map user.

  3. The user is now prompted to scan a QR code.

If the device has to be shared with a friend that already downloaded the app and signed up, he/she should take these steps:

  1. Get into the settings tab via the gear icon located at the top left side of the smartphone screen.

  2. Click on “CONNECT INCEPTOR”

  3. The user is now prompted to scan a QR code.

  1. Get into the settings tab via the gear icon located at the top left side of the smartphone screen.

  2. Click on the “SHARE INCEPTOR” button.
