Getting Started with Life360: The Basics
Before we dive into the specifics, it’s important to understand what Life360 is. Essentially, it’s a location-sharing app that helps you keep tabs on your family members. It comes packed with features like real-time tracking, geo-fencing, and emergency alerts. Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s jump right into how you can set up Life360.
First things first, you’ll need to download the app. You can find it easily on both the App Store and Google Play. Once installed, open the app and sign up using your email or Facebook account.
After signing up, you’ll be prompted to create a ‘Circle’. Think of this as a digital representation of your family or group. Here are some steps:
- Click on ‘Create Circle’
- Enter a name for your circle
- Add members by entering their mobile number
Once you’ve added all members to your circle, they will receive an invite text message from Life360.
Next comes setting up places – these are specific locations that trigger notifications when circle members arrive or leave them. Some common examples include home, school or work.
Finally, ensure all permissions requested by the app are granted – this includes access to location services and notifications. Without these permissions enabled, Life360 won’t be able to function as intended.
Remember folks! This is just scratching the surface of what Life360 has to offer. As we move further in upcoming sections of this article series I’ll delve deeper into other functionalities of this brilliant family locator tool!
