"I love it"
"I love it, it is very easy to use and it has helped me a lot to feel sure that my friends arrived well at their homes and that my family also went to their jobs. You do not need to get it updated and you can send messages, as well as see the routes of the aggregates"
"I've been using the FindMy app for a while and then one of my friends introduced me to Life360 and I'm obsessed!! It lets you know their battery percentage, lets you know if they get in a car accident, tells you when they're in the car, and is very precise on their location. You can text each other which is a nice feature and you can make multiple circles with multiple people! Very well done app!"
"Invaluable on long solo road trips"
"Invaluable on long solo road trips! Also as someone who is perpetually running behind, my best friend uses the app to call me if my location is not tracking towards somewhere I need to be on time which has drastically improved my own sense of timeliness!"
"I enjoy this app"
"I enjoy this app because it can show me where my friends are so I can see where they go when they're out with boys so I can make sure they are okay"
"Make sure we are all safe"
"My friends and I have our own group circle and we can see what everyone is up to and also make sure we are all safe."

Life360 Friend Locator FAQs
Life360 has the lowest battery drain of all locator apps on the market. We have an advanced algorithm that helps us decide when to wake up your phone and update your location—so we never just leave your GPS on. That said, every app that uses location will use some extra battery.
Yes – but keep in mind the missing phone must have Life360 installed and logged in for us to find it. IMPORTANT: Do not log in to your account on another mobile device or the app will only locate the device you logged in to. To locate a lost or stolen phone, ask another person in your Circle to open the Life360 app on their phone to update the lost phone’s location. If the app is not logged in, or if the phone is turned off, or if the battery has died, the location will not update. Life360 cannot lock or factory reset a device that has been lost or stolen Life360 cannot emit a sound to locate your device
No, Life360 is an opt-in app. For someone to find your location using Life360, you will need to give us your explicit permission by: Installing the Life360 app Creating and logging into your account Accepting an invitation to join a Circle As soon as you log out of Life360 or turn off location permissions, your location will no longer update.
