Mel VS - This is hands down the best and most important app on our phones! Thank you!!
As a user of Life360 for many years, I can’t say enough wonderful things about this app. With our family spread across the county, Life 360 gives us all extreme peace of mind. Even our 23 year old son (at the Naval Academy), and our 20 year old daughter in college, appreciate knowing where we, their parents, are. It was incredibly easy to locate them if I had to pick them up at a high school party. If they needed to contact us because they wanted to come home, yet didn’t want their friends to see notifications of texts going back and forth, we’d communicate through the app. Most importantly, because we are their parents and we’ve paid for their phone, that is just part of the deal. We’ve paid for your phone and your plan, then you must have this on your phone at all times, and they’ve never had a problem with that. We’ve never used it as a way to spy on them, but in this day and age in this crazy world, it’s a tool for increased safety. Actually, our 20 year old daughter appreciates us being able to “check-in” on her whereabouts and safety without having to call or text all the time. This was especially useful when she was in high school. There are so many great aspects of this app, and it’s incredibly user friendly. I will continue using Life360 for many, many years to come. Thank you Life360 for peace of mind and the ability to have a good night’s sleep for these past 6 years.
chihuahuasrbest - A must have for every family!
My family loves this app. A few of the reasons we love this app : 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 this app 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!
pearlvision - 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 Life360. 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 Life360 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 Life360 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 this app.... 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 Life360!!!!
Unknown reviewer!! - Great App!
I love this app 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 the app when you upgrade which is also another good thing about the app it’s really cheap to upgrade and all the upgrades come with better features and more things you can see. This app 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 the app 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 this app! I do have one downer about this app 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 the app 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 the app like my family does!
Wild Pepsi - Thank goodness
I had a hard time letting my daughter go places because I just didn’t trust people. After getting this app 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. The app 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. This app 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.
J.J. Spears - Happy Consumers
As for me I’m a mama and me and my daughters use Life360 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 Life360 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 Life360 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 Life360! Keep saving lives and finding people! The app 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!
BoskoBella - One of the best apps I have purchased
There are so many ways to use this app. 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 this app and that we occasionally look in on them, but we also balance that up with having adult conversations about responsibility and in reality having the app allows them more freedom with us.
I would highly recommend this app 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.
KREG55 - 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; the app 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, this app 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 this app 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 this app - and also explaining to your kids that using it as a safety tool is good for everyone.
Rose Love3 - Thoughts About This App
I was wondering Why can’t you do a Update for this app 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)
Lkoegle - Good intention, but ruins relationships
I understand this app 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 this app. 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 this app 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?
Anastasia is a disney Princess - 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 this app 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. This app 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, this app 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
good!!!!!!!!!* - My daughter suggested this app
I got this app 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 this app because we know that the world around us is not always a safe place and this app 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!
lilpapy - 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 Life360 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 this app. 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 this app 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. This app obviously wasn’t designed to expose rebellious teens. I would highly recommend this app.
Dixie3813 - Saved my dads life
If you’re even thinking about getting this app, 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. This app gave us his exact location within 30 feet of him. This app allowed us to get him to the hospital with a depressed skull fracture, severely dislocated shoulder & several scrapes, etc requiring medical attention. Without Life360 my dad may have died on the side of the road before anyone even knew he was there. This app 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 Life360. Thank you to the developers for creating this app that allowed me to get my dad the help he needed, before it was too late.
Jaxonsmomma2004 - 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 the app 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 Life360 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.
PrairieKerri - Used this app for over 5 years
Okay, let’s start by saying that no one is perfect and neither is this app. 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 Life360 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.
dat Hemroid - Connects our whole family
This App 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 this App 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 this App could be a literal life saver. Thank you Life 360!
Eminem2008 - Love Life 360!
I purchased this app 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 this app. It is a great tool for families.
brlittle01 - Stellar tracking and geofencing app
Update: Previous five star review below downgraded to four stars because Life360 no longer integrates with IFTTT. Because Life360 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 Life360 problem or an IFTTT problem but I give both services only four stars now instead of previous five stars. My understanding is that Life360 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.
ReadyForSummer13 - 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 Life360 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: “ Life360 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:___“. This app was once my enemy, being the teenager that I was. But now I am super thankful that this app exists!! Thank you so, so much Life360!
bubblecoco457747 - 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, this app 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 this app. 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.
YogiMamaX2 - Best app if you care to know that your kids are safe.
I’ve had this app since it launched and it gives me peace of mind. I’m far more comfortable allowing my kids to go out with their friends because I know that if anything happens I’ll be alerted and can find them quickly. Without this app I don’t think I would be so open to hand my keys over. It’s not about trusting my children it’s about knowing the many things that could go wrong and having experienced the horror of delays in getting to your loved one. In addition, as a single mom,I like your kids would know because somebody needs to. My youngest son will sometimes check where I’m at and ask if I can stop by and pick something up or instead of texting me five times wondering how long till I’m home he just checks the app instead. One last gift of this app is whenever my grown son travels on long road trips he’ll add himself to my circle just as a back up in case something were to happen during his travels. It gives us both peace of mind. If teens don’t like this app it’s because they are teenagers and they’re not going to like much of anything that you do as a parent. But having conversations about boundaries and expectations are always helpful in a family and this can be a tool for that.
19Am84 - Good But Needs Improvements
This app is great in many ways but at the same time it also lacks a lot. I have had the app tell me that my son left school in the middle of the day and was showing him in the middle of a farm field. He in fact was at school and never left. It isn’t always accurate in showing where someone is and will show them 2-3 buildings down or across the street (but eventually does reload to reflect the correct location). When you go to review someone’s drive that has been completed it doesn’t show the actual drive but has just jagged lines that shows you drove through the middle of buildings, fields and across neighborhoods. I have had the app state that my drive had “hard breaking” when in fact I didn’t (not even close). My daughter has also been in two accidents where one actually totaled her car and I was not notified by the app of the accident.
The idea of it is great but they have a lot to work on. Talking with their customer service is pointless as it is obvious that they are just reading from a prompt and don’t actually listen to your concerns or have knowledge of the app. Yes, it does help but if you are wanting to know exact routes you child took to get to their destination this is not the app for you. If you child has hard breaking reports don’t be too hard on them because there is a large chance that it didn’t actually happen.
barboshks - The death of trust and good parenting
Edit: The newly added bubble method is a great way to keep safe while still giving your kids some degree of privacy. This new feature actually makes me want to update my review from a 1 star to 4 stars. I still believe that incorrect usage of the app creates a bad relationship of trust between your kid and you but these new features help kids be independent and helps their parents know they are safe.
Honestly what this app does is show parents lack of trust in their kids. If your kid is sneaking out all the time who’s fault do you think it is? It’s YOUR fault. It’s a reflection of you bad parenting ability. A good parent builds trust with their kid where they wouldn’t go against their parents. This app destroys trust. If you are tracking your kid you think they won’t do stuff or sneak out anyway? Kids are smart obviously much smarter then you. After testing this app there are various easy loopholes to make you seem like your somewhere else or to break the app from working in general. Maybe instead of pushing your kid farther from you and putting them in chains you should take the opportunity to address the issue and build your relationship with your kid. This app is greatest at pushing your kid away from you and allowing parents to take the easy way in addressing the issue while ruining their relations with your kid.
*nelsona99* - Great app
I love this app. It is great for families and especially for parents. To all the “people” leaving negative reviews, I can tell that most of you are teenagers and have NO clue what it is like to be a parent, and until you have raised your own children through their teenage years you have no idea what you are talking about; you just sound like spoiled, bratty children, which is all the more reason parents needs apps like this! I have a great relationship with my teenagers and I do trust them but this app is used for so much more than tracking our kids’ whereabouts. No teenager should hide their whereabouts from their parents, who undoubtedly pay their kid’s phone bills (all bills for that matter). So until you are grown enough to work, pay your own way in life, and get out on your own, stop complaining and giving this app bad reviews just because you’re angry with your parents. Enough of my rant, just tired of apps getting bad reviews for the wrong reasons. This app works great. It has little glitches from time to time but overall it works correctly and gives some peace of mind so that you don’t have to worry about your family as much, plus you don’t have to call or text them to ask where they are and possibly distract them while driving. Love it!!
Tville Girl - Peace of Mind
I’ve had this had for about 4 years now. My teens, age 19 & 16, are in my circle. At times some of their friends have asked me to add them as well. My daughter is away at college and has circles with her sorority sisters and friends. It gives me such peace of mind to look and see where my kids are. If they are driving, as long as they are moving, it lets me know they are okay. And to know I could locate them in an emergency if needed is very helpful. I do not stalk them. In fact they use it to track my location more than I do theirs!! But if I don’t recognize a location, and I can’t get them to answer a text, I will call. But that happens very rarely. I understand that some have a problem with location tracking apps and feeling like it’s a violation of privacy. That’s just something you will have to work out with your family. As for me & my family, this works great for us. I did have to turn off the sound notifications though because every time it would alert, the dogs ran to the back door barking & waiting for the kids to come in. They had been trained that the sound meant the kids were home. The problem was sometimes they were just driving by the house, since the school is just a mile down the road!!
Californian29 - STILL FRUSTRATING
UPDATE II: I still seem to have issues now with my moms tracking. I’ve checked the settings and all is correct. But, it still shows her at home since November 25, 2020. My daughters seemed to have resolved itself of previous problems. But, in good conscience, I just cannot give this app more than two stars at this time due to continued issues. Get your app together L360. It’s long over due. 🤨
UPDATE: Developers were very quick to reach out and try to help with a resolution. I give them kudos for that. However, I opted to not pursue their suggestions again because they were taking me down the exact same road as my previous THREE times I’ve had concerns to report. It doesn’t fix the problems. It never does. So, for the sake of my sanity, it’s no longer worth my time nor the frustration. I will let my subscription expire and will purchase the HUM tracking device. My dad has had it well over a year without a single issue whatsoever.
This app is USELESS!! It will not update locations. It consistently shows my daughter at home when I know she’s at school. It randomly decides when the heck it’s going to work. I’ve contacted systems help. I’ve done EVERYTHING to make sure our settings are correct. THEY ARE!! It STILL won’t work. We paid the $$ to have the premium service too and it’s a complete waste of money. It gives me ZERO piece of mind. I’ll very soon be looking for a new tracking app. Can’t wait to get RID of this one. 😡
safe teens - Family safety and trust
I started life 361 after my daughter started driving and going out with her friends in the evening. It was a way for me to know where she was in case of an emergency, and not to track her every movement. I knew there would come a time when I would have to trust in her but life 360 gave me a little more confidence. I did the same for my son when he started driving. I also added my husband who is a contractor and drives all over town and has a heart condition so if something ever happened to him I would never known where he was. life360 also gave me confidence knowing I could find him if necessary. I had to make it clear to my family that this was not being used as a tracking device but a safety device and we have never had a problem. One other feature is that it tracks how fast you drive. I have actually been called out by my two teams that when coming to pick them up from a Friends house I was driving over the speed limit. I would highly recommend this app and hope you can stay in business because it really is a good safety tool so long as you use it that way, and trust in each other knowing that it’s for everyone’s safety. FYI many colleges nowadays also have a similar app.
ArseKicker - A very well designed and developed app that does what it says it does.
It’s pretty shocking how many people want to leave negative reviews about an app that does exactly what it says it does. If you don’t like what it does, why did you use it to begin with?
If you’re like me and you have a very young daughter and the family that drives a lot, it’s nice to know where everyone is at all times without having to make a phone call or send a text message while you’re driving, for example. For those who say that you’re a bad parent if your kid sneaks out of the house at 2a, that sounds like something a sneaky child might write 😉. I had good parents, and I did some sneaky things as a teen. People aren’t perfect. But if something goes wrong (like an auto accident or a kidnapping), this app might help, and it certainly helps if you’re trying to find them at a location when they are in a loud room or not near their phone. I use it to know when my parents (senior citizens) are arriving at my home or meeting me somewhere, since they are challenged with directions. I can see when family members are going to be home based on their location, without having to interrupt them while they’re driving.
I use this app every day and love it.
Tamara sexy - Accurate Gps tracker💧
It took me so long to understand the real use of this gps tracker I actually downloaded it due to an online ad about few months ago I decided to make use of it and ever since I started making use of this gps tracker I feel at ease because I feel my family closer even while we are miles away from one another at least I can know there whereabouts and all that but using this tracker to track my husband gps location lead me to finding out that he constantly visit his ex girlfriend this was a bit of shock to me and I tried asking him but he denies every single time I asked so all this made this very suspicious for me and I discussed this with a military friend of mine and she referred me to this professionals private investigator hacker whom I reach on this email Cybernationexpert@gmailcom. reaching them and with their professional interventions I was able to get every bit of my mans phone activities including his chats calls log pictures and other apps remotely from my phone without any suspicion getting into his phone gives me a lot of information about what he’s been keeping from me and where I really stand in the relationship and wonderful thank you for your active gps service
Judyblukers - I found my daughter after a terrible accident
I got the life 360 app after my divorce. It made me feel better knowing where the kids were. They were young when I first got the app. But as they got older and even started driving they liked "marking" locations so I wouldn't wonder where they are- but what's the bigger deal is how Life360 helped me find my daughter when she was in a horrible horse accident and was knocked out. She was helicoptered in a flight for life from a remote location. When some random person called me ( yes- every parents nightmare) and asked "Is Ella your daughter?". My daughter was riding horses with a group of young women in a remote location. A horse reared up and and fell on her crushing her. The people she was with panicked and dragged her (literally). By the time I got a call my daughter was in shock. The people didn't know where they were going- I was able to follow where she was using the app ( I was 3.5 hours away) and follow her movement. I was able to figure out the possibilities of which hospital she might end up in and while driving myself call them all to find her. I did. And as soon as I got there they loaded me and my daughter in a helicopter. I love Life360. I tell all my fiends. It's priceless.
bren.schulz - Invasion of privacy
Before you all go writing me off as another teen trying to escape from my parents, no. I'm not. I'm 19 and I'm about to be in college. I understand the reasoning for this application, as it is very useful. HOWEVER, it is only useful when put in the hands of someone who knows how to use it. For example, I have had Life360 for a few years now. Before I had the app, I would go about my day enjoying myself and the world around me. This has changed. My family forced me into downloading this app onto my iPhone through convincing me that it would be beneficial to everyone. I was sorely mistaken for believing them. Ever since I downloaded the app, my stress and anxiety levels have increased beyond belief because I have members of my family who will constantly be on the app, I have screenshots of when my location was pinged 90+ times in one day. This is a sign of a toxic household. I now live in fear of "going beyond the boundaries" and I also now always feel the need to let everybody know every single detail, even when they don't need to know. I know this sounds like a small issue, but as a young adult who is about to transition into the grown-up and adult world, this is unhealthy and therefore this application is not beneficial to my mental health or safety or helpful in any way. This app alone has harboured countless arguments in my family and I am seriously sick and tired of invasive apps like these coupled with families like mine ruining kids' childhoods.
tSiv3 - Peace of mind, life saver
My family has had Life360 for 5 years, since my son started driving. He is now in college. I always explained to him that by having access to his whereabouts, I didn’t need to call him or have him call me all the time. I held to that promise. Even in college, when I need peace of mind, I check to see he made it back to his apartment. I never comment to him or ask him to call me all the time. He understood that as a Mom, I would worry about him. I also gave him access to my location when he went to college as a sign of mutual respect. Life360 came in handy when he was 16 and was in car accident. He didn’t know where he was and within seconds I had directions directly to him. He’s had multiple accidents and this tool has helped out each and every time. I turned off the capability to monitor his speed and driving halfway into his senior year of high school because I knew it was time to trust. Plus, the conflicts over the information began to wear on me. Early on, it’s was very helpful and productive. After a year or two it just became a source of conflict. He’s 20 now. I can see his location. anytime I want, though I rarely check. It has helped me be a better, less nagging parent.
Daurice - LOVE LOVE LOVE
Our family has been using this app for over 10 years! We needed a way to stay connected when we weren’t all together. You can text and check in with your family right from the app! About two years ago we got married in Vegas. All of our kids who are now grown tracked each other. If they got confused they would pop open the app and start walking toward one another. Now our niece is in the family circle. She regularly checks our locations to see what we are up too. In recent times, the world has gotten more dangerous, people have replaced house phones with cellphones making it difficult to talk to your kids when they are out with friends. I love that EVERYONE in a family circle of trust. The kids don’t feel violated and it gives the parents an opportunity to let the kids have the same level of trust bc adults are being tracked. My girls have both told us that they secretly always loved the app bc if anything were to happen, Life360 would report their trips and their last known locations. It lets you know if your child is walking or in a car. If the car is speeding it will let you know. This app does it all! Not to mention lost phones are quickly located!
country bimpki - The benefits of life 360 App.
My family started using life 360 as a safety measure for active kids growing up, as well as our aging mother. I joined the family circle a state away, as did most of our family, so we were all in touch. Little did i know i would find out first hand, just how beneficial the app would be! I was in a bad accident, and rear ended at a high rate of speed. By the time the vehicle i was in, completely stopped from the impact, my phone began ringing almost continuously. Life 360 contacted my family within seconds of the impact, dispatched emergency personnel to my location and continued to call my phone until i answered. The dispatcher asked about the color and type of vehicle i was in and how i was doing, as well as if i could tell her anything about the others involved. She was incredibly kind, and let me know that everything was being taken care of and that help would be there quickly. We had “on star” and i also have a medical app but the paramedics were there before either of them got through to us for assistance. I can’t say enough about the benefits of having this app, or just how awsome the people who work there are. Thank you Life 360* for all you do!
hannahthehero🦋🦄 - Love it! Psst also download maps aka Apple Maps it’s good too!
So I love Life360 you can track friends and family and has stuff like crash detection, emergency contacts ( this is all in the safety button), and crime reports and like incidents near you. Ok next, there are places you can pin point to look at the address, and on the people list of you tap on somebody you can see how many minutes or hours they are away. You can also see wheee they have been to! If you need map and tracking apps this is the one you really should get!!!! Also I recommend Apple Maps too! Like I said in the title! If your new in town or where ever you are you can get directions on how to get there and is very easy to do! Also I’m 11 yrs old and I helped my grandma to get to my sisters tae kwon do class by using Apple Maps well I think it’s also called just maps idk, anyway it was easy I just looked at the trail and told her where to go and easy peasy! Yes I know the story might be confusing also, but my point is I recommend both apps! Anyways thanks for reading this review and have a great day and if your in summer right now (depends when your read this) then have a good summer! (Or winter,spring, and fall!) God bless you!
Can not watch - Piece of mind, Great app!!
As a parent, it is our responsibility to know where our kids are and keep them safe until they go out on their own. This app is a GREAT way to help keep them safe and see where they are. It’s nice to be able to see they arrived safely at their destination and they forgot to let you know. If your kids aren’t doing anything wrong or trying to hide something, then what is there to be mad about. If they think this app is causing the relationship issues with parents, their wrong. They need to look a lot deeper than this app and build a real trusting, loving, and respecting relationship with their parents. Maybe one day when they become parents they will understand.
I use this for our mom’s too, who are in their late 70’s. It’s just a piece of mind to be able to look at the app and see where they are when they don’t answer your phone call or text.
I am so glad this app was developed. Some kids these days don’t understand all the dangers that are out there and think they are invincible. Tell that to some of the parents whose kids are missing or dead because of the evil in this world. This app could literally save a persons life. Thanks Chris and the Life360 family!!
JunkMan333 - A must have app for anyone
This app has been a game changer for our family. We love the peace of mind it gives. Just one example is that I am a cyclist and ride 100 mile rides often. Several times I have been out and had a break down with my bike that I couldn’t fix roadside. My wife has been able to use the app to give her exact directions to my location. I could go on and on about many of the features but I want to say something about all the teens that gave negative reviews. You don’t have to use the app if you don’t want. That’s your choice but don’t degrade a company that’s only agenda is to help people stay connected. I get you are young and want to be independent and not have some parent knowing everywhere you are but mark my words, one day you will have children and you too will worry about them. Besides, if you are doing nothing wrong then what does it hurt? You may regret it if you find yourself trapped in your upside down vehicle off the road somewhere that you can’t be seen by passing motorist. A friend on mine sat trapped in his upside down truck for two and a half days in a creek with his dead girlfriend beside him. He wishes they had something like this back the. Grow up.
lettuce tomato onion - Thank you for listening to teens
I’m 18, I live on my own, my parents never used life360. They respected me enough to understand that I am my own person, not an extension of them. If my mom ever feared for my safety, she would call and text. I always told her where I was going, because we had a great deal of mutual trust between us. I got into my fair share of trouble as a minor, but not nearly as much as I would have if I knew I was being watched. The lack of privacy that teens are given when they’re forced to use this app just makes them sneakier, and they’re more likely to get themselves into dangerous situations, just to avoid being punished. Ghost mode is a fantastic addition to this app. All of the safety features are still enabled, just with the location turned off. I respect the company so much more knowing that they listened to the young people that this app is often weaponized against. If this company, who literally designed an app that you use to spy on your children, can understand that they deserve privacy, why can’t you? Please be respectful of your kids, understand that they are human, just like you, and they deserve privacy. Open and honest communication is the first building block of a trusting relationship between you and your kid(s).
Boast-not - Teen Management
This App works perfectly for parents to know where their children are at all times. The purpose of parents knowing where our children are is not to ‘catch them in the act’ perse. It works for parents to know their kids are ok and god forbid anything should happen, we as parents will know where their located. In my opinion, if teenagers and the like don’t like the app because of its accuracy as to their location, then I expect those children are somewhere they are not supposed to be or doing something they are not supposed to be doing, or both. If children tell their parents where they are going and later decide to go somewhere else then they should either text their parents of the change in plans or have a good explanation why they were located somewhere else. Sorry for the rant! But kids, we parents care most about your safety and it’s for that reason parents have this app.
On a side note, I have 2 teenage boys, that think they are grown. And occasionally turn off location services. Since the phones are on my account and I pay for them, I should be able to control the location function for this app on their phones. Wish we had that capability!
kikiki1144 - Best app out there for busy families, hands down!
The best app out there for busy families, hands down! Pre-Covid, everyone in my family had busy schedules - my sister travels a lot for work, my parents travel a lot to golf, and my brother commutes about an hour for work. This app keeps us all on the same page. My parents are able to sleep more soundly, knowing where their kids are, that their kids are safe, and knowing that if we were to get into an accident, Life360 is right there. For me, it even gives me peace of mind. Before we had Life360 there were a few times my brother would go out with his friends, forget to call/text them, and not come home. Which left my parents worried sick, and calling me to try and figure out where he was. Now that we have Life360 this hasn’t been an issue - we are able to just check the app to see where he is and where he’s been to make sure he’s somewhere safe. We’ve even used it to find his lost phone before. The SOS Help Alert button also lets us rest easy, knowing that when he is out, if something were to happen, he could just use it. I honestly feel like if you care about your family’s safety, you should have this app.
Cory83192 - Removal of previous reviews
I received an email from you requesting me to reevaluate your company due to past negative reviews given by your users. This is why I give you one star. I don’t agree with you asking your service provider to remove previous reviews because they were not acceptable to you. I don’t get the option to contact the credit bureau and ask them to remove all of my negative history because I failed at something. I work to make things better and pay the price until I can prove myself. I feel you should not ask us, your users, to reevaluate you because you removed previous reviews because they were low. There was a reason they were low, either misunderstanding or actual failure to provide to your users. Both considered a failure. Either way, it should make you reflect on what caused the low reviews and should try other means to prove your company as opposed to deleting pertinent feedback given by your users. You now have enlightened me now on how it is possible to manipulate reviews if they are not giving you a positive outcome. And I’m sure this feedback will surely end up the same as your other negative feedback, deleted.
But I did want you to know how I felt. Notice nothing in this feedback is in regards to your actual product. Only in the manor you wish to control the way users who give you feedback.
I wish you luck and strength in the future of your business.
eab2002 - Great app for families trying to manage a busy schedule
I have read the comments about “death of parenting trust” and completely disagree. This is just a other tool to use while you are responsibly parenting. They are kids for goodness sake. No matter how much you trust them, it is necessary to find them sometimes when your child has her ringer off on her phone and forget to tell you where to pick them up after the football game. This is an incredible app for determining when the sports bus will be returning back to the school after a late game and if they have returned home safely from school when you are at work and your teen forgets to touch base. Most times, my teen just tells me to “360” her when I am picking her up from a sports dinner when she can’t remember the address of the teammate’s house. With the app, I feel safer when my tween wants to ride bikes with friends or go to the candy store since I know exactly where to pick her up when she calls. Also, it goes both ways. My children know where my husband and I are and how quickly we will be to their location to pick them up. I have recommended this app to countless friends and sportsparents and will continue to do so.
Coinlaundry - Thankful Mom and Dad
Thank you Life360 for offering a tool to offer a peace of mind when our son is behind the wheel. You see, on January 8, 2019, I logged into Life360 to see the location of our son. I knew he was on his way home from basketball practice and as time passed knew he had plenty of time to arrive home. I logged back into Life360 and noticed he had stalled a mile from home. Still no movement, I decided to go check on him. Lots of thoughts crossed my mind. Did he get pulled over by the police, was he in an accident, or maybe out of gas. After calling his phone several times and no answer, I decided to go look for him. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about our precious kiddo! As I pulled up to the scene, I kept hollering “please Jesus let him be ok”. Mason was nowhere to be found. Rescue and police were everywhere. His Jeep was destroyed. Not knowing the condition Mason was in, I ran back to my car and drove to the hospital. He was immediately life flighted to another state. Mason spent time in ICU with the most amazing doctors and nurses. We know why and how he survived the wreck. JESUS! Thank you Life360! With the help of your app, I was able to get to our son. Life360 is an awesome tool and provides a peace of mind!
lola ava.l - This app is amazing!
This apo is SO useful it helps a lot! I love how you can see where your loved ones/ friends or family are at any time! I just have a few suggestions when your at a certain place and someone comes close to you it should tell you that they have arrived at your location. For example if you have Life360 and your mom dose and you are waiting for her to pick you up and someone’s car comes up and you do not know if it is her or not it would not tell you she would be there but if her car comes instead of having to check the app to see if she is near it should give you a notification like “ Mom has arrived in your location” also I like how there is so much tools and stuff like that but I hate how most of them cost money and don’t get me wrong this app saved SO MANY lives but it would be just so amazing if the emergency dispatch thing would be free and all of the other stuff like that because what if someone can’t spend money and there loved one got in a situation and all you have is Life360!? And again I LOVE this app just that please make some of the things free it would really help others! other than that this app is really great and helpful!
waaaaay powerful - This app gives me piece of mind when I let my teens go out.
There are many aspects of this app I love, but my favorite feature of this app is the safety component. One day my son was out riding his bike and he was lost. It was getting dark and he was 10 miles away from home. Through the app I was able to map him, find him, and bring him home safely. In another incidence, my son fell off his bike and the bike was damaged and he was not able to ride home. Once again I was able to easily find him. This app allows my teens to have some freedom at the same time gives me piece of mind. If they are running late, I quickly look to see where they are and I either remind them its time to come home, or I can see they are on their way without the barrage of texts. It also allows me to see what my family’s phone charge is-so if I dont get a call I can see if my boys (or husband) phones are dead. I don’t have drivers yet but I intend to use that service too. I really love this app. As for the boys (15 and 13)- they were thankful those few times I was able to find them so quickly. My boys use the app as well to see where I am when I am picking them from school. It is truly and wonderful app!
ldapayne - Awesome
My daughter and I witnessed a car accident and I asked her to call 911 while I went to get the driver out of the vehicle as it was filling with smoke. My daughter went into panic mode and had no clue where we were, even though we drove through that area everyday. She was almost 15 at the time and I thought if she ever had an accident of her own , she would probably react the same. A few weeks later, I ran into an old co worker of mine and she told me about this app. We downloaded it and I fell in love with it. We added My dad, who is retired, to our circle and when he hears about accidents etc that’s in our area or daily routes, he can look and have peace of mind knowing that we are safe. My daughter now 17, had a accident over the summer and just as I suspected, when she called me, she couldn’t tell me where she was. I’m so glad we heard and downloaded this app. I was able to see exactly where she was and get help to her as she was almost an hr away visiting relatives and I was at work. You never know how you’re gonna react in situations until it happens, so for the teens that don’t want or like this app, it’s for your parents peace of mind and not necessarily a violation of privacy.
LJern360 - Family Friendly
Our family begin using Life360 almost 10 years ago when both of our boys were driving and one of them was getting involved with drugs. One son would disappear for days on end and we didn’t know if he was dead or alive. We found Life360 and presented it to our boys asking them to please trust us enough to be able to see where they were just in case the unthinkable might happen so we could at least find them if their phone was still with them. It turned out to be a huge blessing for all of us! Not only in the critical times, but to be able to find each other quickly, give them directions if they are lost, oh and fun things like knowing how far away family is from arriving at our home for the holidays.
We highly recommend this app for family and friends who want to stay in touch. We have loved ones who live in Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maine, etc. It truly makes you feel closer when you can see each other through Life360. And what’s nice is if you don’t want people to see where you are, you just turn off the Wi-Fi on the app and then turn it back on again when you’re ready.
World of tanks tips too - To all the parents
I understand the concept of this app. To know where each other are located when you need to know. Parents calling us rebellious teens for having to “hide” where we’re going...No we aren’t. If I tell you I’m going somewhere....that’s where I’m going ...if you need to know where I’m at...call me. With the inaccuracies on the tracking it’s great to come home and get asked 500 questions. Let me ask you, parents. Were you ever tracked when you were a kid? As long as parents do not abuse the app and check it ever 15 seconds (which I know happens) it’s fine. It’s a great app for emergencies, but most overuse it. You weren’t tracked as a teen and you probably turned out just fine. Talk about destroying freedoms and relationships. These straight A students you can find it the comments (before the company removed the badly rated comments) deserve parents trust. If you can’t trust them they sure aren’t going to trust you. Don’t be surprised after years of this they move out and don’t come back or talk to you for a while. Here’s a tip if you MUST have some sort of tracking. Use find my iPhone which tells of the last place a specific iPhone was and it’s already installed on iPhones. It’s actually accurate. I hear the argument often, “what if you were in a crash and no one could find you”....Really? I doubt that’s the real reason, but again...find my iPhone works just fine for that.
Will Proper - Complete invasion of privacy
I am 19 years old and for the most part have myself together pretty well. I don’t get drunk, I don’t do drugs, I don’t get myself into situations I wouldn’t want my parents hearing about or finding out about and I tend to be pretty open when it comes to something that I did the night before that was funny or stupid or or even bad sometimes. I also tell my parents where I’m going and tell them I love them before I leave the house every time. I enjoy staying out later on the weekends and finding things to do with my friends and my mom always questions me of where I’m at and why I’m out so late etc and I feel like parents are so reliant on the app to stalk their kids that they don’t give a rats behind about whether their kids are, oh i don’t know, maybe having fun? Enjoying time with their friends? Just food for thought for any parents reading this review, it may not gain you peace of mind but rather leave you sitting awake at night tracking your kids and pestering them while not even realize you’re being a bother and also losing sleep in the process. Just establish some trust with your kids and let them know you’ll be there if they need them (whether you’ll be mad or not lol) and let them have fun on their own because sooner or later, you won’t have the luxury of talking to them in the morning at the table and asking them how their night went.

1987BE - Great app!
Great app! We have used this with a big group of friends while on holiday... if your meant to meet up but your friends are in the pool or can’t answer their phone, you can look at your app and know where they are & meet up with them that way. Great for if you have young teenagers, you know where they are and that they are safe and or doing what they said they were. If you lose your phone ( gives you an area - not an exact pin point ) but if you leave it at a restaurant you were at you’d be able to work it out... I use it to see when my husband leaves work to start dinner so it’s ready when he walks in. It’s not creepy or sneaky as you both have to download the app and agree to be in a “tracking circle”. I think it’s super handy! ☺️
concerned citizen 10 - Pausing locations
Love the app
But don’t make it obvious that people have turned off their location. Make an option to pause location. sharing your location with some one is personnel and it takes a lot of trust and some kids don’t have that trust with their parents yet.
Even making a disclaimer to anyone pauses their location, telling them to make sure that people who care about can’t still know where they are. Making sure that parents and children know that they need to trust each other for location sharing to work is very important
Dazzer04 - Positive feedback, please iron out aforementioned below :)
For an app founded in 2008, you would expect it would have ironed out the flaws, it is pretty good and offers decent use for a free account, I’m mostly disappointed with the driving history, it doesn’t recognise being on a train, giving a false reading of your actual driving; I think if snapchat can do this, so could your developer.
One other thing that could use some improvement, is travelling passed “home” it alerts that I’m home, instead I often on my way home go passed on the way to the shops, surely if still driving, the app can work it out not to alert within a zone, unless you’ve stopped the car?
I’ll finish on a positive, this has great potential and for now is still really good at tracking you and others, and would recommend for tracking alone, that works great.
Carthewg - Inaccurate and inconsistent
This app is good in theory and there are many things I like about it like adding places etc. However, I use it for my children, exactly same model phones exactly the same mobile carrier and sometimes when they are together the results are different. First started noticing it with alerts for areas going off, it wouldn’t advise my daughter had left a location until we were several kms away from the circle. Even today, both kids went for bike ride same place, on way there app didn’t pick up one of the kids until she was half way there, the other child the app was ‘estimating where she was’ as the line didn’t show up on any roads. But I’m the way back the app had kicked in properly and the results were consistent. So I guess what I’m trying to say is when you move it takes a while for the app the track… and the results are quite inconsistent.
geotash74 - What’s changed?
I’ve had Life360 for my family and early teenagers for a couple of years and it’s been brilliant for peace of mind and knowing when they leave home, arrive at school etc. However, it seems since this latest update introducing the bubbles, suddenly our family notifications don’t work properly. I get notifications all night and day telling me the kids have left home and arrived home when they are sitting right next to me. I’ve tried increasing the tolerance on ‘places’ and makes no difference. I’ve messaged support and never received a reply but my ticket has been closed. Disappointed. My kids will be driving in the next year or so but at the moment I would be reluctant to pay for the extended driving version of this app until it’s working properly again. Admin@Life360... can you help!!?
Oliviakeyinthedoor - Great- a few minor glitches
This app has brought a great deal of peace of mind whilst dealing with a teenager just starting to spread her wings. It allows me to give her more of the freedoms she craves- and while it doesn’t assure her safety it offers me reassurance about where she is and who’s house she is at. Though I have noticed a few glitches- it will tell me she is home when she is known to be elsewhere. Then it jumps around and puts her at several places all within the space of about 3 seconds. Apart from this it’s wonderful, and worth the modest monthly subscription (optional- the free service is just as comprehensive) for peace of mind.
RBass81 - Peace of mind and convenience
Life360 is a fantastic way for our family to keep track of each other. The app makes it so much easier for my wife and I to coordinate pick-ups and drop-offs for the kids as our live locations are visible. Also provides peace of mind when one of the kids starts walking or riding to school independently, and the geo-alerts let you know when they’ve arrived safely.
Even my 16 year old has seen the benefit of the app as he can see when we’re leaving work and will often request a pick-up if we’re in his vicinity.
Crazy Cool 1 - #ghostmode
This app use to be absolute garbage and allowed narcissistic parents to stalk and harass their own children but now ghost mode is allowing a bit of privacy and altogether has made it a lot more fair and is still and effective way of staying safe so overall this app is fantastic and cheers to the creator for listening out and risking their everything to improve the app because for people who are unaware they actually almost lost their job for this because others didn’t agree but he stood his ground and made this app reasonable so I overall recommend this app for parents and teens
ECBntlnay - BIG help
Lucky that my husband and I both downloaded this app. There was a time when I am talking with my husband over the phone while his driving late at night from his workplace and about to go home when he suddenly feel a terrible pain from his stomach going up to his chest and he can no longer talk to me on the phone and locate the hospital (because we are new in town), so I try to locate him using this app and guided him going there. Thank you for creating this app really saved my husband earlier tonight. 🙏❤️
Tahleela - Great app but buggy
It’s a great app but I’m currently having issues with locations.
Someone in my family group has all of their location permissions on and has done everything the app is telling her to do however my app is still saying that her locations permissions are off and will not update with her location.
I’ve gone through every setting and it’s all the same as mine (which is working). Is this just a bug? We cannot fix this :(
zoesfreakinnickname - Comfort at my fingertips
I love this app! I feel so much better being able to see where my family are at the touch of a button and check where they’ve been, especially my teenager! You can even see the average km/h they were driving and how much battery % is left on their phones and zoom in to see google earth rooftops and exactly where the ph is if you lose it. They have really covered all bases on this app it’s the best. Absolutely 5 stars!
Rp1980papa - Accurate and easy.
This app is probably one of the best on the market. It is accurate, and informative. It’s very helpful for family members who travel long distances away from home, for that added peace of mind of knowing where family members are when travelling at night or during busy periods. It’s also good to keep watch of speeds, especially if a certain family member has a lead foot whilst driving. Highly recommend this app.
carebare 15 - Actually helped me get my phone back!
So my family have used Life 360 for around 2 years and has always been helpful, but as of an hour ago this app has truly helped me! I was at a plant nursery where someone tried to steal my phone, and with my daughters help from her phone connected to our account helped us track down the person who took it. I am truly thankful for this app helping me get my iPhone 11 Pro back. Thanks Life 360!!!
rads47 - Enhancement to aid personal safety
A friend has mentioned Hollie Guard App which tracks similarly to Life360 but also has a personal alarm ‘siren’ where any user who feels threatens can ‘shake’ their phone and a audible noise comes from their device to help alert others but also could scare off some attackers. Before I consider switching to that App, does Life360 have a similar support feature and/or could you consider designing one? Thank you
Cueball 1966 - No Regrets
This is so useful to know where our family members are at all times. We don’t have to wonder if the kids made it to where they were going, if someone is a little late we can check how far away they are and if God forbid anything should ever happen, we would have a much better idea of where they have been in order to find them.
Our family love this app.
Jez308 - Love it
Life360 is a great app that allows you to know where your loved ones are.
I also use it to know when to start cooking as I can see how far each family member is from me and the app gives me an estimated time to that person. So the meals are always on time when they arrive.
Great for making sure your elderly parents or grandparents ok and always know where they are.
M.R (malek-micco raad) - Tracking like a boss
Yo, I'm mot a tracking freak, but it helps out a lot when my family get notified when I'm at the shopping centre so they send me what they meed without me having to call them one by one.
It is so helpful with my job as well since I get paid hourly, so the application has all the hours, to the minute, that I've been at my workplace and I can use it to show my boss.
Really good app.
morgaaan-x - Used to work but doesn’t anymore
I’ve updated the app several times in hope that it will start working again like it used to. I don’t get notifications anymore of people leaving or arriving at places until hours later. If I try and locate them on the map, their location is completely inaccurate (I know this because we will be at home together and it’ll say they’re out in the middle of nowhere). Currently, it says my fiancé has his phone off or no network but I am currently on the phone with him. Please fix the app because it used to be so good and it’s just not anymore
Ljds1234 - Great
Easy to use, has helped my anxiety by reassuring me that my husband is nearly home/stopped at the shop/still at work etc, instead of worrying that he’s had an accident. Anxiety makes no sense, but it’s nice to be able to alleviate it on a day to day basis using the app. Can add other people to your circle (with their permission, of course), so great for the whole family.
Blussfull77 - Update
Since the last update it says people in my circle can not be found whilst their location sharing is turned on? Any tips would be helpful I have closed the app and reopened it, turned phone off and back on to reboot and still saying person can not be located
I use to love this app but the last year I’ve had it has been nothing short of disappointment after the next, then when nothing gets resolved and I enquire about a refund as the app has not done what I paid good money for it to do, I’m told it’s not up to life360 themselves to refund even though it’s their app I paid for
KedronTaroPeelers - Useful app
I have continued using this app as it allows family members to immediately see where each of us are located. My grand daughter loves watching her mum drive home to us. I can check to see when family members are on the way to family gatherings and I can make sure our grey nomad members are moving and are safe at night.
Ruby tuby poopy pants - LIFE 360
My family downloaded this app for me because I have started high school this year and a few of my friends have recommended it... I was happy that I got notifications when mum and dad were coming home, home, at work or wherever their location was. We used it heaps until it disappointed us by glitching and saying I was somewhere else when I was at home or not even opening the app... my friend has it and she has no issues. Can someone please help?? But aside from all of this it is a good app and is helpful to know where mum and dad are when you need them
Chick & Meryl - Family Safety
I had used this app for myself and hubby as we ride motor bikes so often ride alone- this gave us peace of mind to track each other. Then introduced the whole family with teenagers who love the fact they can see were each other is if they need to contact them for safety as our granddaughter is a first time driver and we know where she is. Would highly recommend.
Mick & Cheryl
Josh_Reviews_ - Best available
This app is truly the greatest on the market, I’ve been using this on my children for about a year. The largest complaint from my children were the minimal space of privacy but this ghost mode addition is the absolute best thing for this app. I can know where my kids are but giving them much more privacy, best update ever!
Sai bhimaraju - Sai Bhimaraju
Hi it is a great app particularly if you have a family we need to use this app so that we can know where is everyone. And gives lot of peice oh mind when any family member running late we can trace them where they are and making life easy
Thanks to Life360
I recommending this app to all families around the globe
Thanks again to Life360 👍
megeloisenorman - Saved my Grandmother
Life 360 is wonderful, with all the precise functions we have achieved so much. My grandmother recently got her phone and car stolen- life 360 had tracked the drive and specifics about speed etc. we successfully found her phone along with finding security footage of the bandits at a near service station. Thank you- wonderful app.
K80appleapper - Fantastic-Easy-Detailed-Reliable
I love this ap. It not only makes it easy for my husband and I to stay in touch with where we are, but it even shows as we move and speeds we’re travelling. I can see this being an asset when my kids begin driving themselves.
It’s easy to use, accurate and reliable.
Working Mum of Three - Best kid tracking tool ever
Notifications and fast access to location information makes working parent life so much more bearable. Always know where your kids are without asking them. Notifies when they arrive at school and back home safely. This has been massive sanity saver for me from primary to teens.
liisa66 - Love this app for whole fam tracking and movements
The app provides knowledge and security to know where everyone is. I feel I can have kids safe to know they have bit more independence to go about activities and day.
We have had few incidents and life 360 got them out of trouble as could see us or brother and sister. Through Covid this has been life saver for travel and more.
Iisacc Cusack - Selling your info unless you opt out.
I’ve been using this app for years. Even had a paid plan for a while there. But today, it’s been uninstalled on all of my families devices because of one (not so simple) thing: selling our information for profit. Buried three layers deep is an option where you must manually opt out, otherwise they’ll sell your location and history of data. This is low-life, shady and despicable. Disgusting ethics. I’ll never use this service again, and I’ll be suggesting the same to my entire network of friends.
Rell_21 - Anywhere
I’ve been using this app for awhile now, I love it as my partner is a truck driver so I can see where he is and where my 2 kids are but I’m sick of getting notifications saying one of my daughters has left home at 4am and she’s over a hill in the bush than arrived home 5 minutes later. I get so many that they have left or arrived home all throughout the night. This is meant to let you know where your family are not give you heart attacks. This needs to be fixed.
G & T L - Good but the sound notifications are not helpful
I like the app but I think that there are issues like when we change phones and numbers and if there is no internet it doesn’t work say if the carrier you’re using has bad reception everywhere the. This app is not useful. Also would be good to have more free functions like adding work, school, uni, etc
MandyJMoo - My bf literally flipped his car and crash/drive detection didn’t say anything
Luckily he was able to get out unhurt miraculously, and call me for help. However
If he had sustained severe injuries during this accident, he most likely would’ve died.
Because I wouldn't of had a clue he got into an accident if he didn’t call me that day.
He would’ve been stuck in that car upside down for hours maybe even a night. It was a gravel road a fair ways away from our home. In my eyes, if things had gone any differently he probably wouldn’t be alive today. Which scares me
I’m just a bit confused why it’s called crash detection if it can’t even detect a car flipping upside down but okay And if I seriously have to pay for that feature that just feels wrong. Especially when it’s a feature you’re supposed to be able to use without a subscription.
Anortimous - Love it!
Great way for families to feel connected, safe and worry free. Also handy if someone you set a pin on the grocery store and get alerted that someone is nearby to grab milk etc. cool for the kids in that they can ask you to pick them up from somewhere and you can see exactly where they are.
Haylock74 - Knowing where loved ones are!
I really find this app useful! Especially with making sure my step son is safe when he is out and knowing where he is and where he has been. It also allows him to know where his parents are if he needs to locate us in an emergency.
jdmc369147 - The best app to keep a safe watch on kids
My family is absolutely loving Life360! My son has just started driving and it’s just so reassuring to know when he has completed a drive safely and the app even tells me his top speed! Very happy to recommend to kids, parents, partners & friends.
geegeef - Unreliable app
I was so happy I found this app so I could check that my children were ok when traveling to/from school and sports activities and it was great initially but lately it has been unreliable with huge lags on location updates on family members which is a major concern and defeats the whole purpose of the app. From a safety perspective you could not rely on it to give you a real time location of your family members. Reliability, real time updates are critical. Time to search for a more reliable app.
wEiRdO LiKeS SIX the Musical - .
My life360 is amazing apart from one thing. I have this for me and my friends and you can send messages to people in your circle, but when I try to send messages it says “Failed to send. Tap to retry” I literally looked everywhere to find how to fix this but nothing is found. None of my friends have this problem though.
Trishngav - Great for parents
I have 2 teenage boys, one who has just started driving and this app has helped me be less nagging and stressed. The boys enjoy it too as they don’t have to check in every 5 minutes. Also helps with pick ups knowing exactly where they are. Well worth the money.
NSMXO - Now not working
This was a great app!! Now not so much only works when driving. Stays stuck on location where I have dropped off my daughter for hours, won’t refresh and her location could not be found. No point having it!!
Heidiwalkr - So useful
This app is so useful. I can check how far away my husband is coming home from work. Or where he is if out. I can check on family to make sure they are safe when traveling. This can give so much peace of mind. And help for planning busy days and evenings.
Dog-onit - Invaluable
We use this app for a Jetski social group and it has proved itself invaluable as a safety tool.
It’s the number one priority for our group rides that all participants have the app and turned on, that is how valuable it has proved itself. We recommend this app to many.
comsdb - Great app, when it works!
We have been using this app for several months now and found when it works it’s a great benefit. But there are times it just does not update. Even though people are using the same routes at the same time most days sometimes it will just not display movement or notify when someone has left or entered a predefined location.
Leapster84 - Glitches
I use this for my girls to make sure they get to and from school
It is amazing, honestly it is. But every now and then it delays, and - for example - the girls will be at the train station then it says that one kid is on the freeway....
I freak out a bit, and end up calling them hahah
Is there a reason for this
nisaljayy - Great app!
Shows the travelling speed for the free version as well. Using this for years now. The desktop website need to get improved since it's not refreshing as the mobile app and does not show the travelling speed. Other than that love the app!
Grimm1487 - Poor Customer Service.
This app used to be okay but now it’s not accurate & now we can’t track each other live, it keeps saying cannot locate other person/people. I pay for premium but if I change circles it cancels my premium.
It also keeps saying people are offline when they aren’t. Contacted support 3 days ago with no reply. Starting to feel I want a refund & to go to another app honestly.
tuppence saint - Teenage family
I am a mum of 3 and 2 no longer live at home but I still know if my kids are at school, work or home. The peace of mind is amazing. Also they know where I’m at and can call me if I’m at the shop or just out and about and they need something.
hcat_ - Peace of mind
This app gives me peace of mind as I can see at a glance where my 16yo daughter is, and she knows she doesn’t have to call me to ask if she can go to a friends house etc. having said that, she’s very honest & reliable so she doesn’t mind having the app on her phone.
tyreld - Absolutely fantastic
Being a dad of teenagers, I was always worried about their wear-about , specifically at night. This app has been a blessing to know where they are and are on their way home in real time.
Thank you for this App guys. Still exploring the many features. 😍👍🏼
Windyz - We love the Transparency
My whole family loves this app, knowing where anyone is is great, and with three teens in cars or on bikes I feel like I have a clue where they are and how safe they are travelling. The kids especially appreciate knowing where I am when they want a lift home.

️Mermaidariel - don’t use it to track ur kids
it’s a great app for friends to keep each other safe. just don’t force kids to have it as a way to track them.
RordenGamsey - If you hate your kids
this is how you lose your child's trust and friendliness. please never download this app if you plan on tracking your children or your partner without their consent. this is so blatantly disrespectful and creepy.
jacob duong - How to trick life 360
Turn off data for life 360

DavetheUsher - Horrendous
If you want to have a terrible relationship with your children and give them trust issues for the rest of their life, I’d highly recommend you start with this garbage app. :)
f*chthissh*t - Ruins relationships
This app is perfect if you your children to lose all trust in you as a parent. It’s an invasion of privacy and should not be used to monitor everyone at all times.
Wally 444 - Life360
As a father if my kids need help I know where to look for them. I don’t criticize them wherever they may go and never question them they don’t mind me knowing wherever they may be. I’m sure they feel more secure knowing where I can find them if they need help,
kessia_kane - Prison life
Thx can’t live my life now 🙄
a.mc_ - my parents made me get this app
i hate this app, it’s absolutely annoying AND for some stupid reason it’s saying that my phone is off when it’s not
LdoggGaming - Eww
daaaamnRiLEY - Read
Hate this app:) if it wasn’t for this app I’d be living my teenage life right now but instead I can’t go anywhere +I’m being tracked at all times? Hate it.
lhaloween - Boycott not free
Ghost mode: This app isn’t meant to be used for abuse of power over teenagers ghost mode is essential to the apps integrity.
Cost: this app should not require parent. This apps Alleged goal is safety.... safety isn’t a luxury for the rich lower income families deserve this as well
mz courage - Life360 outstanding app
It’s important to know that 360 is a great remote spy apps that can be used to monitor and track suspected cheating wives, kids and your staff activities at work. However this great app couldn’t grant all access I needed to detect and catch my wife red handed in her deceptive ways. It all started when I had a suspicion on her with some recently inherited behavior like staying out late nights after work, being clingy to her phones and so on. I came to the internet to find a lasting solution to solve my marital problems. Thank God, Reece faz came my way after checking through positive reviews on Mspy app, how he helped a woman catch her cheating husband red handed. I reached him via his mail at targetspytech (@) gmailcom and he requested for certain info such as my spouses phone number and phone model. Within 3-5 hrs I got a notification popped up on my phone it was from Reece. he gave me a spy link which I accessed with my phone web browser there I was able to see all of his texts, call logs, shared pictures and videos etc as if I got his phone in my palms. It’s really a great opportunity to use the services of targetspytech (@) gmailcom, if you got similar issues right now I’ll strongly advice you write him for an excellent spying and tracking services. This is the most highly recommended and genuine services that works efficiently than the spy apps.
Mrsghost - Great app!
Love knowing where all my family is! And knowing everyone is safe
allyyyyy632 - hate it
haute it hate it
zaaaaaaakkkkkk - tracker
terrible app its a sham
KadieDoran - I hate this app
I really don’t like this app the timing is off when it says I’m leaving home and flushes out and puts me on a random street when I’m somewhere else don’t use it!!!!!!!
teenromancexpeep - how
how does it have a 4.4 rating... literally ruined sm relationships between parents n kids
26488/'dhiwnsnd - worst decision
Absolutely ruined my relationship with my kids they hate me now and call me toxic and I know it is. I do not recommend this if you want to have a good relationship with your kids😢
tna__02 - Good interface, bad idea
My parents still force me to have it and I’m 18, it’s a great way to loose trust in your kids and too constantly stalk them but if you want to keep a good relationship I wouldn’t recommend. I absolutely hate this app more than anything, I wish it was banned so children of struct parents weren’t subjected too it.
janaecole6 - Worst app ever
If you wanna ruin your trust and relationship with your kid this app is perfect. My parents forced me to get it and since then there has been no trust ever
jekwlwlnd - Lose your child’s trust 101
My mom downloaded this and then deleted it cuz she knew it would destroy my trust with her and my dad. Terrible app if your trying to watch your kids location all the time.
DescendantMalDove191919 - don’t do it...
unless you want lifelong trust issues that can grow into hate :)
Queen austina - Unnecessary notifications
I don’t need to know that my sisters battery is at 7%. She knows.
Joebealer - Gives my kids more freedom
This app allows me to feel safer knowing my kids are where they’re supposed to be. They like it as well to know where I am.
just.being.honestt - Invasion
This is not how parents should be “maintaining a healthy relationship with their kids”. It’s ridiculous that parents are watching their every move. Children deserve some aspect of privacy and if your wondering why your kid doesn’t like you very much than this is part of the reason.
Moonkeys Are Cool - poopy
sucks hate being tracked.
cdog review - Invade of privacy
It sucks it’s absolute dogwater plus it an invade of privacy
aaaadssdsdkeigoenphowjv - Great app
I love this app. It works for me and my family and even with my bf. My mom has my location and I don’t care because I have nothing to hide. The people that hate this app are either cheaters or they know they’re doing things they shouldn’t be doing. If you have nothing to hide, there’s nothing wrong with this app. And for people saying they sell your data, big news buddy every app does! So who cares? I completely trust my bf/family, we use it for safety. The only reason I don’t give 5 stars is because it bugs sometimes but other than that, it’s perfect ❤️
EpiiicReviews - a
Todd Noel - Selling location data
Not a fan of you packaging and selling children’s location days.
Jndndnhduehdhdnnd - don’t use it to track kids!!
this app is great for keeping yourself safe between friends or family if you want. features like crash detection can and probably have saved lives. don’t hate the app for what it was supposed to be for! on the other hand, please don’t use it to track your kids. you may think you’re just being protective and are worried for their safety but there are other ways to do this. this can destroy your relationship and make them not trust you.
AlexandraJBennett - cool for friends but chat is so laggy
i have a circle with my friends but whenever i use the chat feature it bugs out and lags everything and is incredibly frustrating. pls fix thank you
monterrubiohalex - Mrs Monterrubio
This app is simple, functional, and does what it has to. Great one!
bisligm - GARBAGE
This trash is loading so slow and doesn’t trash accurate location.
Aashayen - Terrible apps not accurate
My wife and I have been using this apps for 2 years now then all of the sudden it stopped working in her end it always says her phone is off or no coverage even though her phone is on . We tried everything to fix it. Changed our both password and logged out for 24 hours and turn it back on and still says her phone is off. Please fix this .
whoreable humans - Meh
I understand that when you get an app you can get a free trial but with this app i just wish you would get more without having to pay for gold or premium or at least make it more affordable
self musing - Most accurate
No glitches and the most accurate location app.
Melt1208 - Great app on the whole
Life360 is a great app but there are some times when you have to refresh the app to get a person’s location or sometimes it doesn’t show but I’m not sure if that’s my phone or the app.
isnewkehej - PUT EMAIL OPTION TO SIGN UP PLEASE
I need a number to sign up for it maybe put emails too.
37!:9$?: - driving
when my mom is driving it’s really delayed
MascaraGeek - Glitchy
Usually love this app. Lately it has been glitchy. Notifications are way delayed. We use this as a family to know that everyone got where they are going, safely but when it doesn’t notify you in real time, it causes some upset. Time for a bug fix?
egregiously terribly awful - Bad
bowvowbow - It works
I use it too track wherever my mom is, and I find it safe because say your child goes out and doesn’t come back at the time they said they would then you can track the phone and it’ll make it easier to find him/her
gacha._.cookie484 - Nice app!
I use it with my friends and its very funny
nonameyuh - So good and safe!
The app is perfect and free!!
Anonymous young one - Good but not good
My parents use this to track my sister and I which I don’t mind but I think kids deserve privacy and parents should trust their kids. I like it though good app and my parents love it!
secret person shhhh - sucks.
i can’t even open the app it just crashes
