DJI is committed to helping maintain safe air space for all our users and the public. Our GEO system has different levels of geofencing zones to help you choose the right flight location based on different policies around world. If you have been authorized to operate in a GEO zone by the authorities you can apply to unlock flight restriction in Authorization Zones or restricted areas.

When you takeoff inside or near an Authorization Zone a flight restrictions warning will be shown in the app. Tap yes and choose credit card or phone SMS for verification. After verification tap the confirm button to unlock the Authorization Zone. The unlocking license can be checked and managed in the app. You can also unlock and Authorization Zone on the fly safe section of the DJI’s official website before the flight.
