Download.com Staff Aug 28, 2014

Life360 - Family Locator +more is a helpful application that allows you to monitor your family's activities through GPS tracking and private communication. This easy-to-use program offers tons of safety features, but its constant monitoring system will drain your battery.

Pros

Excellent safety features: The amount of details in Family Locator's map feature is great for keeping track of crime and dangerous areas, especially with the registered sex offender tool. Our map accurately displayed locations of hospitals and other emergency services, and our test phone checked into locations automatically as desired.

Fast performance: We found that Life360 - Family Locator +more is constantly updated with current crimes and family activity, and new maps load without hesitation. The messaging system is rapid, and we observed that the panic button feature quickly sent emails to our linked accounts after recognizing their mobile phones were powered off.

Easily operated: It is not hard to see that this application was designed with children in mind. Sending messages and finding family members is easy due to the large display scheme, and the automatic location monitoring does not require you to manually input data.

Cons

Moderate power consumption: Life360 - Family Locator +more claims that it will use approximately 10 percent of your phone's battery, but we observed that our test device lost about 15 while running this application.

Bottom Line

You will definitely find Life360 - Family Locator +more well built and beneficial for your family. It performed well during all tests and offers a wide variety of tools.

Family Locator alerts you when your family members have checked in at a location and thanks to GPS sensors in your phone, family locator can also advise if someone is running late.

Finding Family

The Life360 app uses state-of-the-art GPS location technology to report the real-time whereabouts of those that have accepted your invitation to join your circle and share their location. Simply install the Life360 Family Locator app on your phone, and invite your family. Once registered, each member appears as a unique icon on the navigational map so you'll know exactly where they are. No need to send annoying "Where are your?" or "What's your ETA?" texts, the Life360 Family Locator puts this information at your fingertips. And to make life super easy, we send you alerts the moment your family arrives at an appointed location!

In order for our app to work properly, we need a few permissions. Don't worry - when you create an account, we help you through this quick and easy process.

Location - Life360 locates you and your loved ones on a shared, private map. This setting allows us to show location accurately and quickly.

Phone permission - Life360 has a feature called Driver Care Support that, with a single push of a button, connects you to a live representative over the phone. Our live representative knows who you are and where you are to assist in roadside situations such as tows, jumps, and lockouts. We also offer an immediate emergency response in the case of a vehicular collision. Phone permissions allow us to connect your phone to the live representative and authenticate that you are the one calling them.

Network - This connects you to the Internet and allows us to send and receive location information to and from family members on your private map.
