How Does Life360 Work?

The Life360 app is designed to help families stay connected and safe. It can be used to see loved ones locations, receive notifications when they arrive at and/or leave designated Places, get alerted if they need help, and even help find them if they get lost. With features like these, it’s no wonder that Life360 has become one of the most popular family safety apps available. Millions of people use it worldwide to stay connected and safe.  The app works by allowing users to create a “Circle” of family and friends. This Circle can include anyone in your life that you want to stay connected to – whether that’s your spouse, your kids, your parents, or your friends. 

Life360 Features

Location Sharing

Life360’s location sharing feature enables family members to easily share their real-time location and movements with one another, allowing them to stay informed of each other’s whereabouts no matter where they are.

Driving Safety and Crash Detection

Using Life360 crash detection, your Circle can be notified when you’ve been in an accident. Your location will be shared with your Circle members and emergency contacts if help is needed or you do not respond. With Driving Summaries, you will also be able to see how your family is doing behind the wheel. 

Digital Safety

Life360 continuously scans the dark web for your personal information to keep your identity safe through data breach alerts. We’ll notify you right away if any suspicious activity is detected, so you’re always in the loop. Premium members can also benefit from identity theft protection and, with Platinum, credit monitoring.

Emergency Assistance and Travel Support

Your family will be taken care of by a team of trained experts. With our emergency assistance support we can help with any of the following:

How Accurate is Life360?

Life360 is renowned for its accuracy and reliability. The app’s advanced positioning technology makes sure that users can have the most up-to-date location information available. This technology uses a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi, and cellular networks to accurately pinpoint a user’s location within seconds of being requested.

Is Life360 Free?

The Life360 app is available for free on both Android and iOS devices. If you would like to access more advanced features, such as individual driving reports, emergency dispatch, roadside assistance, and more, we offer membership plans that suit a variety of lifestyles and budgets.

Can You Have More Than One Circle on Life360?

Yes! In fact, many Life360 users have more than one Circle. Users can have a Circle for their partner, a Circle for their family, and a Circle for their friends. Switching between Circles is no difficult task either. Learn more about switching Circles here.

Does Life360 Notify You When Someone Checks Your Location?

No, Life360 does not notify individual users when someone from their Circle checks their location within the app. However, Circle members cannot see each other’s locations without the user’s permission, as location availability is set by each individual user. Circle members are also not notified when a user turns off their location, but they will be able to see this information within the app itself.

Does Life360 Share Phone Activity?

While Life360 can detect phone usage while driving within Gold and Platinum subscriptions, it does not track what users do on their phones outside of the app. This means Life360 does not track or report: text messages, social media activity, phone calls, search history, and more.

Can You Change the Name of a Life360 Circle?

Yes! You can always change the name of your Circle within the Life360 app. All you have to do is enter the app, click on settings, navigate to “Circle Management” and from there you can change your Circle name whenever and however many times you’d like. Be sure to check out some funny Circle names from our members for inspiration.
