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