A must have for every family!

My family loves Life360. A few of the reasons we love Life360 : we can check on my elderly in-laws who make a long commute and go through an hour of no service several times a week. Before we go to bed at night we get to see if they are not home. They also have a house out of state so when one of them goes by themselves out of state we can track their move if they were to be stopped on the side of the road and perhaps had vehicle trouble. My husband is a police officer and when I see he’s running late in the evening I always check Life360 and I can see where he’s at my local town and then I assume he’s on a call, verse at the store picking something up about to be home, and I can plan dinner accordingly. I have got another side of the family using it and we love it for the same reasons & more. No more asking where sew and sew is that they don’t answer their phone we can see oh they might be at the doctor or picking up the kids from school, they are stuck in traffic and that’s why they are not home yet. The teenagers in the family of course are not a big fan because this tracks speed, phone usage and location... but in times they wanted help on a long trip it has been a God send even to them. It’s a great gauge for even adults to pay attention to how many times you grab your phone or how many times you are speeding and then risk of a ticket which could make your insurance go up or cause a wreck. This is a fantastic app!


5+ stars!!!

A couple of years ago My mom suffered from “Transient Global Amnesia”. I’ve never heard of it.... but let me tell you it’s a very scary thing to happen to someone you love. It’s when there’s a Temporary loss but almost total disruption of short term memory, it can last between 2-8 hours. The first time this happened to her, we didn’t have the this app. She was leaving the gym and had no clue where she was at and why she was there. I thank God that some sweet people were there to help her back in and were able to call us. My brother had heard about the this app app and we quickly put on her phone. A year later it happened again (there is no cure from this, once it happens once it can happen again, we’ve been able to kinda figure what tributes to it) but again She had no idea why she was sitting in a car at a grocery store parking lot. I was waiting for her at a friends house and she was late. When I called her she didn’t know who I was or even who she was. I was able to track her down with the this app app..... which was the best invention ever for me and my family. I was able to get to her and rush her to the hospital. Without Life360.... I don’t even want to think of what could of happened. We have it on all our phones, our kids are not big fans but they’ve had some close calls when dealing with bad weather and getting stuck somewhere and we’ve been able to get to them. So they’ve come to appreciate it. Thank you this app!!!!


Great App!

I love Life360 because I can keep up with my family while they are away or on the go. It tells me the speed of the car to make sure the teenagers are driving safe. It also has a “driving safe mode” and a “wreck detector mode” on Life360 when you upgrade which is also another good thing about Life360 it’s really cheap to upgrade and all the upgrades come with better features and more things you can see. Life360 alerts me when my husband arrives and leaves any place I mark on the map but without the upgrade it will only allow you to get alerts with 2 locations you have marked on the map with the upgrade you get the option to get alerts with more then one location which is a lot better. I don’t use Life360 to spy on my husband or kids I use it for their safety and to know they are okay when they leave our home. I highly recommend Life360! I do have one downer about Life360 the locations of your peers do not work while their “save battery mode” is on or if they don’t have service or WiFi and if their phone needs to be charged once the battery gets to low then it want work as well but it will alert you to remind them to charge their phone. You can also message them on Life360 and react like “love” or “thumbs down” on their location. One more thing that I love is it also tells you their route and the locations they have been the whole week. I hope everyone enjoys Life360 like my family does!


Thank goodness

I had a hard time letting my daughter go places because I just didn’t trust people. After getting Life360 I started letting her go to playdates and sleep overs all I asked from the parents was to inform me of any plan changes. Well sadly this family thought it was okay to drop off my daughter and theirs to another house to babysit so they all could go to the bar. Life360 reported she was in another location and I called her only to hear her say she was uncomfortable and the kids they wanted her to babysit were under 5 years old, she didn’t know what to do or how to keep them from screaming. I was furious my daughter has never took care of kids or trained to. I called the parents and they acted as that was not a big deal. It was 11pm about to be 12am, I told them you ether get my daughter and her friend from that house or I will drive down there and I will call the police for endangerment of all the kids. My daughter normally is 5-10 minutes away from our home but this family relocated and now were a hour away. I was upset but not wanting my anger to get the best of me. It has been three years now she has gone once or twice for sleep overs but now they respect my wishes and always let me know if they plan to go to a playground or something else. Life360 gives me a peace of mind and lets me know where she is at all times today she’s 11 years old and understands the importance to report herself and voice her questions and concerns.


Happy Consumers

As for me I’m a mama and me and my daughters use this app and we do very much appreciate the service bcuz it helps me keep an eye out for and know exactly where my daughters are as well as my daughters know exactly where their mama is. Me and a friend of mine were robbed at gunpoint last year and without this app my kids wouldn’t have known where I was or where I had been yet the robber took our phones and our purses and my friends car yet my girls had been watching everywhere I had been and it did help. It even helped the cops even though they never found our phones nor her car it did help them find the people who robbed us and so that was awesome! I don’t know what we’d do without this app and I’d always be on ends bcuz I wouldn’t know exactly where my kids are even though they’re grown I still worry about them as they do me too bcuz we’ve been through some crazy situations in our lives even though we do not hang with a bad crowd it’s just America has become that dangerous. I wish it were a little more affordable as far a some of the special features bcuz we live on a fixed income and my kids are outta jobs due only to COVID-19. People we all need more prayers as we’re definitely praying for all of u. Thank u. We appreciate u in all u do for people this app! Keep saving lives and finding people! Life360 does Need to be a bit more exact and faster though it is great and we enjoy having the ability to use it. Thank you so much!


One of the best apps I have purchased

There are so many ways to use Life360. As a busy mom, I like to put in alerts when my husband reaches a certain point on his commute home so I know when to start dinner. Also, finding my lacrosse player kiddos on a huge lacrosse tournament field has been stressful in the past, now it is easy to locate and keep track of the three of them on a busy tournament weekend.
I understand that there is controversy about spying on my kids whereabouts, but as a parent it is nice to know that they are where they say they are going to be, or to know where to pick them up if they don’t know the address. And with teen drivers, having the crash detection and the high speed alerts gives me a lot more comfort when they are in the roads. My kids all know that we have Life360 and that we occasionally look in on them, but we also balance that up with having adult conversations about responsibility and in reality having Life360 allows them more freedom with us.
I would highly recommend Life360 for parents as one of the many tools we use to parent and protect our kids.
We have added my mother to our circle and she gets such a huge kick out of seeing where we are on any given day. I think it gives her a sense of closeness even though we live states apart. Also for me, as she is aging. Having a general idea of her daily activities can help alert me if something is off.
Highly recommend!


So grateful for this app

It may sound counterintuitive, but because I know that I can quickly locate my teens using Life 360 if there to be an emergency or they found themselves in an unsafe situation, my husband and I have been comfortable granting them greater freedom. I understand that some kids have been resistant to downloading Life 360 to their phones, but mine have come to appreciate that we trust them and really don’t need to spy on them or track them; Life360 is genuinely a tool that provides them safety and relieved our anxiety. I guess we feel that if we didn’t trust them in the first place, Life 360 wouldn’t change that. But, Life360 has been amazing and grants such peace of mind! My son began attending a school quite a distance from us in just 7th grade, and the only feasible way to get there and back is via subway/commuter rail. My chest tightened at the thought, until other parents told us about Life 360. I can’t tell you how many times Life360 has saved us - when he’s gotten off at the wrong train stop, or forgotten to text us when he got on the train, or when the train has been delayed, etc. It’s been hugely helpful as far as timing when to meet him. Later, this transferred to expanding his social privileges, knowing that if something didn’t work out quite right, we’d know how get to him. I highly recommend Life360 - and also explaining to your kids that using it as a safety tool is good for everyone.


Thoughts About This App

I was wondering Why can’t you do a Update for Life360 for like when your Family Member has paused there Location I was Wondering for the Person who created the Family group that is me I want to be Able to Be In control if when they want to paused or Stop Sharing Location I want to be able to decide if I want to let them paused it or stop sharing location because my Brother has Mental issuers I need to keep Tabs on him he put a location on paused and he does not answer his phone and I need to worry about him because he does not listen he does not go to class he waits outside and does not do work at all so he gets locked out but he does not come home to tell us that he got locked out instead he just wait there and last time he couldn’t make it Because he was having Double breathing and something so he just waited in the ally then he came home when school finish and then he told us so I want to be able to know he is Safe and we’ll without him knowing I can control his location in private so he won’t know I Unpaused his Location and i want to choose if I will let him paused his location or stop sharing so please Can you do that if you can because I don’t want my grandma having to worry so much she is old so she does not need to be stress and he is like 17 so if you can make an update like that it will be very helpful (Thanks for reading my Comment)


Good intention, but ruins relationships

I understand Life360 was made with the intention of being a safety tool. I 100% agree with that, and I think it can be a wonderful tool if used correctly. However, my mother is one of those helicopter parents that spends her entire life on that app stalking her kids. As an 18 year old, I am so tired of my mom constantly stalking my location and texting me if I forget to tell her that my friends and I are stopping for food first. For God’s sake, I’m an adult! I’m my own person. For the parents out there that constantly stalk there kids and use this as a punishment tool, YOU are the problem, not Life360. You created a simple safety app into an app that completely ruins your relationship with your kids because your intentions may be good, but your implications are that you have no trust in your kids. That hurts when you’re a good kid that’s done nothing wrong, gets great grades, gets into a great college, and literally stays inside all day. To the developers, you’ve done nothing wrong creating Life360 for safety purposes. Parents who feel like they have to have control on every aspect of their child’s life, do better. They are people too. I’m tired of hearing teenagers suffering like me and feeling like they don’t have control of their own life because their parents constantly stalk their every move. How about you set boundaries and create trust instead?


Good app and here’s why

I get so many people (mostly teens) feel like it’s an invasion of privacy and such, but it’s better than some other apps out there. With things going on today, I can see why a parent/parents/guardians would want to see where their child/children are going. Im 21, so I grew up with technology changing from flip phones to staying out until the street lights went on and change to people sending texts and FaceTiming on their phones. I also know sometimes kids (not all) can be dishonest and not tell their parents their true intention or location, in other words, you shouldn’t hate Life360 unless you have something to hide. There are apps that monitor what you do on your phone, so having your family just knowing your location truly shouldn’t be a problem.
Im going to University in a different country from where my family is, they use it to make sure I am safe because they are 10+ hours away from me. Life360 also lets me send out an SOS in case something were to happen.
Along with this my family uses it with older family members as well. My grandmother is almost 90 and it keeps us in a good state of mind to know where she is at all times.

Overall, Life360 isn’t something to hate, it gives families security that you’re safe. And like I said, you shouldn’t have an issue with it UNLESS you’re trying to hide something


My daughter suggested this app

I got Life360 because my teenage daughter was going to college and “she decided” it would be the best way for us to make sure we both were safe. When we first got it we both loved it. And still pretty much do love it but it has had some glitches like delays in telling me or her where we are at the time and sometimes reporting that her battery is dead on her phone when it’s not. I had one moment when I was in the hospital and her life 360 was saying that her last whereabouts was in a parking lot at 2o’clock in the morning and that her phone was dead I was so worried that I called the local police near her college luckily she was safe and asleep in her dorm it scared me half to death I never wanna be afraid like that again. But at the same time I’m glad it gave me that warning. What really happened was she was in a parking lot at 2 AM with a friend who was upset about something and she did go home because her phone was dead and she thought that she had plugged it in the charger but apparently it wasn’t working. I want to thank 360 for helping me and my daughter stay connected and feel safe! My biggest concern are the delays which is why I only have 4 stars. We love Life360 because we know that the world around us is not always a safe place and Life360 helps us in case of emergency. Just image if my daughter had been kidnapped that night. Life 360 might of gave us to help we needed to get her back home to me!


So helpful!

I’m a middle child, I work two jobs, go to school part time and volunteer on the side. I come from a family of busybodies where no one seems to know where anyone is or when they are coming home. This gets frustrating when dinner planning comes around and things need to be done in the house. We also have a few family members with serious health issues so having this app has been a literal lifesaver. We are a very open family so compromising privacy was never a concern for us. I’m so impressed with Life360. You can add in locations like work and school so my mom knows when I’m leaving work and how fast I’m driving or I can see how long my dad was at his doctors appointment. There’s an SOS option for emergencies, directions to family members location and arrival notifications. It’s very easy to use and WAY better than just using the location service on the iPhone. It doesn’t seem to use a ton of data and if my 70 year old father can figure it out I’m sure anyone can. I’m hearing there’s teens out there trying to ruin this apps reviews on TikTok?? I would have loved Life360 as a teenager. Build a more honest and open relationship with your parents before trying to take down a company that is actually working to keep others safe. Life360 obviously wasn’t designed to expose rebellious teens. I would highly recommend Life360.


Saved my dads life

If you’re even thinking about getting Life360, DO IT. My parents, my husband & I are all on one circle, so we can see each other’s locations. Originally it was bought because my husband is in law enforcement and couldn’t have his phone on him at work so I had no way of knowing if he made it safely when he was in a hurry to get to work on time (over an hour drive on interstates etc) Well now, 3years later.. my dad was in a bad motorcycle accident on a back country road headed home from his friends house in the middle of the night. I got the text message saying he may have been in a collision, and to check on him. I immediately called him with no answer, called my mom and within 10 mins of the accident she was on her way to him. Life360 gave us his exact location within 30 feet of him. Life360 allowed us to get him to the hospital with a depressed skull fracture, severely dislocated shoulder & several scrapes, etc requiring medical attention. Without this app my dad may have died on the side of the road before anyone even knew he was there. Life360 literally saved my dads life. Every single person we know is downloading it and sharing it with their loved ones as I type this. Thank God for this app. Thank you to the developers for creating Life360 that allowed me to get my dad the help he needed, before it was too late.


Used this app for over 5 years

Okay, let’s start by saying that no one is perfect and neither is Life360. That being said, as a family, we have used this for many years. Occasionally, the GPS locator is off or there is a delay but overall, it’s given us serious peace of mind when making sure people we love are safe and their location. I should also note that we do not used the paid version so I’m not sure if the paid version upgrade has fewer glitches but overall I’d still say it’s absolutely great.

On a funny note, we are a very conservative family and have different standards for “dating”. Our oldest daughter had a boyfriend and we had not allowed them to be off by themselves. She was working at a local restaurant and her boyfriend asked if he could drive her to work. We said yes but it was a cautious yes. About 15 minutes after they left, I opened this app and noticed that it showed they were not at her work but on a country road not far from there. I immediately called her work to catch her in a lie only to have her answer the phone! 😂
That episode was nearly 5 years ago and that type of glitch with the GPS seems to happen less frequently. But that said, a little parenting advice is to confirm before you react if it shows the person you are following isn’t EXACTLY where they’re supposed to be.


Connects our whole family

Life360 allows me to keep tabs on my aging mother and my children. My mom still drives, which makes me pretty nervous when she drives from Florida to New York by herself. My children are not quite driving age yet but they crave more independence and Life360 gives me a lot of peace of mind when they’re out riding their bikes around the neighborhood or going to creek stomp with neighbor friends. I always know exactly where they are. I also like the location check-in feature. I get notified when they arrive at school, or leave a friends house. I can see when the bus is about to drop them off. And I can see all the places my very active retired mother travels to… “mom, what are you doing in New Orleans?! And how many times do I have to ask you, PLEASE don’t text and drive!” Baby boomers are so head strong! LOL I am so much more optimistic for the future and my kids driving, knowing I’ll be able to keep an eye on their speed, and mobile device usage while they’re driving. Highly recommend to anyone with children, or an aging parent you need to keep tabs on. If my mom ever fell asleep during one of her “road trips”, or had a medical event and crashed with no one around, I would be notified and could call 911 and give them her exact location. I can see how Life360 could be a literal life saver. Thank you Life 360!


It’s been a fabulous family tool!

I was introduced to this by a fellow employee who works at the public school I teach at. At first I subscribed to have another tool to help calm my mama heart with a new teenage boy driver. I just wanted to make sure he got from point A to point B safely. But it’s turned into the whole family using it for many reasons. My younger daughters see if moms on her way home from work or staying longer (cuz I don’t always respond to texts as soon as they would like but they can see on Life360 I am still at work). My son now will see where I am at (location alerts at grocery stores and gas stations have been set up) and he will message and ask if I can grab something. Or when he is on his way home he runs errands and I can see about time wise how he is doing on being home for dinner. It’s the little things that have helped everyone out and helps things run just a little smoother. I am not one to watch him like a hawk on his privacy which I know teens can oppose to being watched. He knows I can peek anytime I want to know where he is at but we both know trust is earned both ways and as long we respect each other there has been no trouble whatsoever. He is almost 18 now and this app will continue to be a tool for my family as my other children grow up and spread their wings and aren’t as home as much.


Love Life 360!

I purchased Life360 when my 16 year old began driving almost 2 years ago. I found it very reassuring to know where he was, of course, but the (safety) circle and drive detection are truly my favorite features.
The circle alerts you, and other selected people of your choice, if the car has been in an accident. It can be used to call for emergency services, tow trucks, etc. It’s a fantastic feature to have. I hope we never have to use it, but you just never know.
The drive detection feature is also terrific. This feature gives me a weekly and daily snapshot of my child’s average driving speed, her braking, rapid acceleration and other good information. Not only does it let me see his driving habits, it also helps with our insurance costs. The longer he drives safely and follows the law, the more of a discount we get. I’m sure this depends upon your insurance provider, but insuring a teenage driver is expensive so every little bit helps!
Now, back to the location services. I have a daughter in middle school now and I really appreciate being able to locate her at all times. She and her friends like to walk and bike and we live in a frightening world. I like the comfort and security of knowing I will always be able to locate both of my children.
I highly recommend Life360. It is a great tool for families.


Stellar tracking and geofencing app

Update: Previous five star review below downgraded to four stars because this app no longer integrates with IFTTT. Because this app coordinated the location of all my family members I could use it to turn off the alarm and unlock the door when the first family member arrived home and then lock the doors and turn on the alarm when the last family member left. I could also use it to adjust the Ecobee thermostat depending on whether or not anyone was home. The default location service of IFTTT isn’t able to distinguish whether anyone else is home so the family location coordination suffers when trying to manage smart family apps. I’m not sure if the integration issue is a this app problem or an IFTTT problem but I give both services only four stars now instead of previous five stars. My understanding is that this app is working on this and if it ever reintegrates I will gladly repost a 5 star rating.


Continues to be a premier tracking and geofencing app. I use it along with SmartThings and IFTTT to turn off my alarm and unlock the door when family members arrive home (and vice versa when the last person leaves.) Not sure if life 360 is still getting slammed by negative reviews from the TikTok TeenyTots but you can bet that the more negative the review they might leave the more assured you can be as a parent that this is a must have app.


Crash detector is A+++++

One of my family members was in a car crash recently. Nothing fatal, thank God!
The person involved in a crash will get a notification on their phone saying: “We detected motion on your phone that felt like a car crash. We’ve informed your circle and emergency contacts so they can check if you’re ok.”
From here, they can either choose “False Alarm” or “There’s been a crash”. If you choose there’s been a crash, it would say: “We hope you’re ok. If you need immediate assistance, please cal 911 now. It gives you two options again “I’m ok” or “Cal 911”.
Regardless of whether the person involved in the crash responds to the Life 360 alerts or not, it will notify the members of the circle and emergency contacts. It took this app a bit longer than we’d like, maybe 8 minutes, to alert them via text message, but we are so thankful regardless! The message sent said: “ this app detected sudden motion on ___'s phone. This could be the result of a collision, hard braking, or a dropped phone. We suggest that you call ___ to check on them: (phone number). When we hear from them, we'll let you know.
View ___'s current location:___“. Life360 was once my enemy, being the teenager that I was. But now I am super thankful that Life360 exists!! Thank you so, so much this app!


very unreasonable when it comes to parenting

Most of the time, parents feel that keeping track of where their children are at at all times is a way to keep them safe, when in reality, you are teaching your child not to trust you. When you are telling your child that you feel the need to track them, you are indirectly telling them that you don’t trust them and you don’t trust that they are honest with where they are going. This builds a dishonest relationship between you and your child. Now, i’d understand if your child was around 8 or 9 years old and you wanted to keep track of them in case of an emergency. But using this on ages 15 and older is so unbelievably wrong. You are teaching your child to lie and hide things from you. No parent wants that. Learn to trust your own kid because it sounds like an issue with you. If your child has given you no valid, logical reason for them not to be trusted, you shouldn’t feel the need to track where they are. Overall, Life360 can be useful in certain circumstances but when it comes to use within the teenage age group, it is illogical and stupid. I’m a teenager myself and let me tell you, we all find ways around Life360. And there are some believe it or not. It’s better to not track your child and receive the honest truth than to be lied to and think you know the truth. suit yourself. that’s all I had to say and any parent with a little bit of intelligence will come to a conclusion that my argument is valid.


Does exactly what it says it does.

This is a must have app for parents and anyone with dependents (either children or parents) with compromised cognitive abilities. My wife found Life360 and placed it on my phone after an accident left me loss of short term memory. After the accident, I would literally get lost just trying to go home. My doctor independently recommended the same app to keep track of me. We now use it for everyone in the family, and always know where our kids are, even when they are traveling in a car. It gives everyone incredible peace of mind. We don’t even have to call one another to meet up - we just use Life360 to track to whomever we are supposed to meet. And when someone is running late, say, to dinner, we can accurately predict when they’ll arrive by tracking their travel. It’s a really, REALLY useful app. And as the original family member for who it was purchased, it gave me great peace of mind knowing that even if I got lost, my family can track directly to me. This is a MUST HAVE for anyone with kids today, for pure safety reasons. You can track to your child’s phone in real time, without help from anyone else, which is critical in the early moments of an abduction. I actually hate most apps and find most of them useless, so I cannot overstate how surprisingly pleased I was to finally find one that’s actually very useful, very simple, very effective, and, in my case, very necessary.


Saves the day every day!

I use this to daily to see where my kids are on their commute to and from school and sports. Two of my kids go to high school in a different state and one is a walker to her school. I like seeing them er their safely without having to call them to distract them from driving. Many times, we are in carpools to sports. I can see if my kids are a few minutes away so I can warm up dinner. Or when picking up, I can locate them and click on “get directions” and it takes me right to my child. Sports complexes are big and sprawling. So this helps me locate the exact field or side of the parking lot. One time, I knew a bad storm was coming and I could see that my son was only around the corner and would be home before the storm hit. When my husband is away, I can see when his plane lands. I can meet him easily. I have used it to find my kid when we separate at the mall. So without Life360, in order to find out where each person is and to get their eta .. it would take a phone call and conversation with each person. I glance at my phone and get all that in seconds. I don’t have to distract them from driving to do so. This is the most important app I have on my phone and cannot live without it. Currently, we have a snowstorm hitting us hard and school was dismissed early. I am nervously monitoring everyone on life 360 and counting down until they arrive home safely.


So far so good

Update: location accuracy has greatly improved in the last few years. For the teens that think Life360 is ruining something for them, get over it. We didn’t have cell phones when we were teens and this was not an option. We didn’t have Facebook, Snapchat instagram, you get it. Times are different. The overprotective parents of my time would actually follow their kids, happened to some of my friends. That was much more embarrassing than an app that just gets you an angry phone call. I would advise parents to not nitpick their kids regarding location and such. I like to know where my kids are but I’m not terribly concerned about what they’re doing. I can find them if I have to, that’s the point. Upgrading review to five stars.

I like knowing where my family is but I wouldn't make an issue with exact locations. Life360 can give you a general idea of where someone is but is only reliable within a 1 mile range or so. My husband and I can be in the same car and it shows us a mile apart on the highway. My daughter can be anywhere on a very large campus and it still says she's at her dorm. I would say that it's great for general peace of mind, but I wouldn't use it as evidence in court. And the map seems to track every stop you make and that makes for a lot of purple dots, kind of annoying. A trip to the pharmacy looks like ten stops. Otherwise, great app.


This app is AMAZING!!!

I only use the free app of this app as of right now because my daughter is only 12 and not driving as of yet. At first glance, I was a little dismayed because my daughter was a couple of blocks away and it said that she was "home" but upon closer look, I could actually continue tapping the icon where it stayed she was located and it LITERALLY showed me the building she was in and exactly where in the building she was located. It did not give me the unit number but it let me know that she was at the South East Corner of the building which was 💯% correct. It also tells me any stops that is made when she is in the car with someone else and how fast the driver is driving. The only bad part of this is that I can't give it more than 5 stars because Life360 is most definitely a 10! My daughter went to Mexico with her father for a long holiday weekend and I started getting sick to my stomach about it one night. I remembered that I had Life360 so I turned it on. At first, Life360 showed where she was but with no information but I kept tapping the icon with my daughter on it and it ended up showing me EXACTLY where she was in Mexico and I cannot tell you how much that meant to me. I could finally sleep and the next day, I followed them back on this app to make sure there were no problems at the border and that they made it home safely on one of the most dangerous Holidays of the year.


Great App - helped teen w/Accident!!

Life360 seems to be extremely accurate unless a phone is on low charge. We love the driving tracking feature. You can screen shoot anything to date and time it to Save the Data. It literally helped us with Insurance when one teen had an accident. We were able to prove they had not touched the phone! They were NOT texting and driving as the other irate obnoxious stigmatizing driver accused them of! We had a passenger witness but it was Life360 that was the final word! We were thankful and have shared that info with others. That could help ANY age driver!! I don’t like that if you put an iPhone on Low Power Mode it interrupts Location detection or if you do something else - but I won’t reveal that for teens who are reading my summary :) Kids think parents don’t trust them. I say kids - TRUST YOUR PARENTS! They have YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND WISDOM! Parents who track their teens care! We are not helicopter parents. And it’s not that I don’t trust my kids. I don’t trust OTHER kids and that has proven to be the right “feeling” many times. It’s been nice to know my teens were somewhere with another kid we knew something about and then we were able to talk and say another teen is in a “growing phase” and it’s best you don’t hang out with them right now. You have ONE NAME in this life! And one wrong event changes lives.


GPS issues

Update. The gps issue has gotten worse. It has even shown my daughter was at our house 38 minutes before she was and the location notification informed me if this. She was at a restaurant streets away with a friend. I really liked Life360 and found it to be useful. I really hope this is corrected and soon. It is not doing what it is intended to do. It incorrectly tells me when my family has left and arrived at a location.

Life360 has been great. Not only have I used it to help locate my family members the intention is for my family members to locate. I have a serious health issues and it will allows for my family members including my children to find me so they can get help for me. I have already found my daughter’s phone that she happened to lose. I have had the exact same issue that the other gentleman has had. GPS has inaccurately telling us we have are locations we have never been. It has told me my children are home when they are over streets away. These GPS issues become issue when they are supposed to tell us where I am so people can help me and get me help. It also helps me find my kids so I know if they are were I think they are. I see that it has been noted it is a know issue and will be corrected soon. An update was recently added, and it appears to be an ongoing issue. Is there a expected date for correction of this issue? This is a big issue and many people appreciate Life360 and would like to continue using it


I've been using this app for years

Thank you very much for allowing us to use your app, it has been a blessing to my family and especially me. I enjoy using Life360 to track where my kids and wife go, mostly to meet up with them or just to know where they're at without having to bother them with a call asking where they are. My family is always moving from place to place during the week, whether it be tumbling, cheer, church, or shopping, I've been able to help out my family with Life360, with the knowledge of what they are doing and knowing if I can go to them and help them out right after I get out of work.

Recently, I've had connection issues and I don't know whether it is my phone being 5+ years old, the service I have or if it is Life360 . I've, at times don't get the updated locations of where my family is at, although after a few minutes, it updates, but if the family is on the move, it could be another 10-15 minutes until I see them again. There are other situations where there is one moment where they are at home, and then the next minute they are 15 miles away... shopping...

I really would like to give 4.75 stars, but it is on a full star system, so I've given five stars. One of my favorite apps to use.


So thankful for this app!

I don’t write reviews, not ever. Life360 just changed that.
My husband travels so much for work that I gave up asking where he is going when he leaves for his trips. It isn’t uncommon for him to be in 2-3 states all in one day and he does most all of his trips driving from place to place. Adding to the challenge, we have kids and various health conditions and need to always be able to reach them or each other in emergencies. Our solution was to use Life360.
Last week I suddenly received a text from my husband that he was in the hospital and being rushed for a cat scan with the worst abdominal pain in his life. That was his only message. He couldn’t tell me where he was, what was wrong...nothing. It was terrifying. Then I remembered we had Life360. Upon checking 360 I found he was 3.5 hrs away in the state of Delaware in a local hospital there. I packed my bag, got in my car and Life360 took me right to him!
I cannot say enough good about Life360. It isn’t perfect but the piece of mind it offers to know that we can find each other relatively easily in emergencies when we sometimes can’t reach out due to pain, medications, and lack of cell service found in certain locations in hospitals give Life360 5 stars hands down. Thank you 360!


This app has had astounding improvements

I’ve been with Life360 for a long time, and have gone thru many teething episodes over the years. And I want to say that this developer really has improved their app. They actually listen and try to make user improvements. There was a time when you had to push a refresh button to get it to update where your person was located. And the person icon on the map jumped to the next location, then stayed there until you pressed the refresh. Now, you actually see your person moving in real-time down the street and you get their travel speed as well. I could go on and on about the many improvements these past 6 years or more. I and my group are extremely satisfied. If a problem does happen, I’ve seen swift action to get it fixed. It’s worth every penny to us.

One other thing I’ll add about Life360. My female friends do pet sitting, and they go into all sorts of neighborhoods. Life360 not only lets you watch their movement in real time, but it will give you a heads up of crime in the area. And that makes me watch very closely all my groups movement while in such areas.

This is a must have app if you care about anyone who travels and you want to check on their safety ahead of them.


Safe, has many features, and easy to use

My dad made us all get Life360, and let me tell you, I wish we had it sooner. This is basically a tracking app for a phone, but has so many more amenities that you could ever think of. Not only does it promote safety, allowing linked accounts to see where another person is, but it also provides directions and the time it takes to reach them all in a single view. It’ll give you the fastest routes. Also, you can also see a user’s top speed (free feature, may I add) if they are traveling in a car. It tells you the location of a person and how long they have been there, and it includes intricate routes that they take. It also shows the battery life of a person’s phone. I like to mess around and text my sister to charge her phone. Mind you, these features were all free with Life360 . They do have in-app purchases with more features, but my family is satisfied with this amount. The userface itself is very easy to use, and it’s also pleasant to the eye.
I’d recommend this for all families for safety, because you never know what can happen! Even though my parents use it on me to see where I am, I also use it on them! Thank you this app for quite literally saving lives!


Great App provides peace of mind

My family has been using Life360 for a number of years and it provides us with great peace of mind. Rather than texting my children when they are driving I can just check Life360 to watch their progress and see that they get to their destinations safely. While in college my daughters both studied abroad and it was nice for me to be able to take a peek to see that they were back at their apartments at night without bugging them or laying awake worrying. Recently my daughter traveled to India by herself and while she did text us to keep us updated it was still nice to be able to see where she was. When my mother travels I can see that she gets to her hotels safely and I get alerts when my husband leaves work so I know when to expect him. Family members can check in easily. It has helped us find each other in New York City, and helped us find lost phones etc. We recommended it to a friend with an autistic son and it has allowed him to become more independent because his parents now have peace of mind as they can track his travels and see that he gets to his part time job and other destinations safely. Fortunately, we have never had to use the safety features but I love knowing they’re there if we need them.


Great reason to download

I’ve been using this app for a couple months now. The first time I heard Life360 was from one of my good friends. She told me she can like “track” her mom and dad and stuff like that. So I decided to download Life360 . Because my father is a truck driver and me as a daughter I get worried when it’s like 10pm and he’s not home. But know that I have this app I get to know where he is and when he is on his way home. Also know my mother and father will know when I enter school. Especially my mother she will be notified once I leave school so she can come pick me up since I walk home. Overall this is a great app and if you have children that you want to make sure they are able to get to school and leave school or when you want to get notified one the come and leave work. Or you have a husband/wife that want to make sure there at work or on there way home. Another reason is you can also text on Life360 if your child/parent does not have the data to text regularly. Also to get my mother and father in the same circle as me did not take that long so basically to assemble your circle it only take about 2-5 minuets depending how many people you want in it. That’s why I give this app a 5-star rating!


Really useful!

I'm 15 years old and when my parents decided to get Life360, I felt really skeptical and unsure about it. However, after having it for over a year, I think it's great! I use it for many different reasons; for example, on the weekends my entire family (parents, sister, sister's husband and son, grandparents) have different plans and you never know where anyone is! With Life360, I usually do a check up on who's home, who's working, etc.. every morning when I wake up, it's really useful! Also, if I ever go to a friend's house and my parents forgot the address, they don't have to call me or text me asking for the address. They can just check where I am (and it does give an exact address along with a gps map) and come pick me up. The only trouble I've ever had is from when I was in middle school and our school had horrible service, so it would glitch out sometimes when I went to school. (Understandable, since the service is bas) Now that I'm in high school there aren't any issues. The interface also looks good and it's easy to use. To any young kids out there along with me, unless you sneak out of your house, you've got nothing to worry about. It's a really good app!


Great in many ways for many reasons

I recently had to do a missing person's in an elderly friend who is active but has health conditions. The police recommended an app like this. I had already used it to make sure my sister was safe in another state with lots of weather as she is also active but elderly. Now with some possible job scrutiny I use it to prove where I have been as well as others I interact with so that things run much smoother. If you use it as a mature adult it's great in so many ways. It's not meant to obstruct privacy it's meant for the well being of those who use Life360 properly and with consent to be part of a group. I just read a one star review about how Life360 has caused problems in the family, sounds like there are problems in the family Life360 can't fix. If you need help get it but don't blame Life360 for your obvious issues that do not pertain to Life360 . The post mentioned parenting but I read about preferred neglect not parenting. I like Life360 as it takes pressure off also when running errands and having to meet up with someone and one or the other may be running behind. All in all it's great and has great features. Thanks 360 for making my life easier!


Simply the best, and it’s free

I shouldn’t be saying this out loud but I can’t believe we get this many features for free. How long will it last? You can set 2 locations (ie geo-fences) free, which is all I need, home and work for example, and control the size of the fence so I’m not notified if my wife is simply on lunch, only when she really leaves work. Location history for a week!! Wow, unreal that that’s free. Oh and it includes speeds, if you are a super stalker I guess? But live speeds are amazing, live updates are about every second and include speed. That’s better than the stock find my app. Plus the week of history exonerates you from any accusations if you have a guilty conscious I guess lol, but really it can help you solve some mysteries I bet, most importantly where your phone disappeared, like if someone steals your phone, first thing they do is turn it off or put it in airplane mode so it can’t be tracked and they erase/reinstall and get a new sim so it can’t be bricked but with Life360, I can see the point where it disappeared and the history before, which could be good for a police report or if you lost it and it ran out of batteries. What an amazing and must-have app!
