What can Life360 do for you?

Family Locating – When you’re on the go and life is moving fast, make sure you know where your family members are! If you are Mom and leaving work, it’s easy to open the app and quickly see that little Susie is on her way home from school, Dad is still at the grocery getting dinner, while Johnny just arrived at soccer practice.

This mom uses the app to watch her son as he takes the dogs on a walk around the neighborhood and as he walks home from school. “The roads Nick walks home on don’t always have sidewalks and can be really busy. It’s nice to be able to watch him walking home from my phone.” Peace of mind can go a long way for a parent. Often times parents find it difficult to keep tabs on their teens. They’re always on the move between school, practice, rehearsal, hanging with friends, etc and calling mom to check in isn’t only inconvenient, but sometimes embarrassing for these young adults trying to establish their independence. But a parent is still a parent and we need to know that our kids are safe and sound! A quick look at the map and you have peace of mind!

Come back next week to learn about the Check In and Panic Alert features on the app!
