  • Wonderful service


    By cheating is not good
    We got different intents coming here to search for an app to track our partner or friends so it’s advisable to know the truth and not fall prey to the evil ones. I have been in a long distance marriage because of the nature of my job, my husband cheated on me times without number but since I wasn’t around to get him caught red handed in the act I decided to hack his cell phone to get all the data activities on his device. I got in contact with Ghosthacker072(@) gmailcom through the head of the IT department in my workplace. According to him, after a long search on here he got to discover this genius and swift IT personnel, this guy is the best in the game right now. He shared me his contact info, After I got in contact with him, we made a deal and i paid him. I doubted the services at first but what I felt impossible became possible within 6hours,I got access to my husband’s phone activities,I don’t know how he did it but it looked like magic cause it was as if I had his phone in my palm. I got access to his Snapchat messages and videos, WhatsApp,instagram,Facebook,call logs ,video chat , text messages etc all in one swipe. I’m happy I got to discover the truth, knowing is better than self doubt. He is definitely the real deal, do not hesitate to reach out to him at Ghosthacker072(@) gmailcom for a perfect, quality and satisfactory spying and investigatory services.
  • This app ruins kids life’s


    By ❌life360❌
    I got this app almost a year ago now because my moms friend told her since I started driving that she should make sure I’m doing what I am supposed to do. She made me get it and immediately she started watching it every second of the day and it isn’t just me and her in a circle it me and my whole family so it isn’t only her being able to see my location and you can just turn it on for just her and turn it off for the other people in the circle. This app makes parents wanna watch their kids 24/7. I would like to know how parents would feel if they where tracked 24/7 when they where kids. This app makes kids have to lie about what they are doing and who they are going to be with. If I would have never got this app I would not have to lie so much about where I am going and who I am gonna be with. Today my mom drove around my friends house 20 time to see if I was at his house and when I had left my phone at his house and we walked to the gas station to get food my mom freaked out because Life360 told her that I was at his house and she seen me walking to the gas station. You need to make this app better by being able to turn off who sees your location in the circle and also be able to have it in a “ghost” mode without them getting notifications it should just say in the app that you are in ghost mode and they area that u might be in. I’m really disappointed in this app and how it was made I hope you make changes soon
  • Inaccurate and privacy issue!!!


    By MalakaiM
    I and my family have had a 360 degree life for about 3 years and not only is it a total privacy violation, we have also identified so many inaccuracies in the persecution. When we first got it, I was in high school in my senior year. A special incident occurred during my musical rehearsal at high school. Fortunately, when my mother called me, I wasn't called on stage yet, and I was beside myself, because life 360 ​​showed that I was in a random house about 5 miles away. I wasn't anywhere in this area before going to school because my house was going in the opposite direction and the rehearsal was right after school. I had to have several friends who spoke to my mother to reassure her that we were at school for a trial. If I hadn't answered my phone when she called, she could very well have called the police and sent them to this house to find me when I wasn't even there. There were also several times last year when I was in my dormitory and life 360 ​​showed me on the soccer field 0.5 miles away or in another dorm nearby, and my mother then texted asking where i am and why i am i where life 360 ​​says that i am. These inaccuracies are not only annoying and confusing for my parents and me, but the complete violation of privacy is also a big problem. I understand that I want to make sure everyone in a family is safe, but I'm 20 years old and still need to use this app.
  • Inaccurate invasion of privacy!!!!!


    By danceprincess6
    My husband and I got this app for our family as a way to better keep up with our high school kids. Initially, it was great. We were all able to keep up with each other much better than with find my friends. However, after a few months of using it, we started having big problems. First, when my son who was a junior in high school was shown as being at a house in a residential neighborhood instead of at school. My husband and I were furious but with a quick call to the school we found out he was indeed in class. How is that for accuracy and safety? Second, and this was our breaking point, I checked my app to check to make sure my daughter was still at her friends house after school to find that my husband was not at work but in an apartment complex near downtown where we both work. Unfortunately, the first thought in my head was that he was cheating and I marched down a couple blocks to his office and found that his Secretary was out for the day. Thankfully, seconds later before I blew a gasket, he came out from an all day meeting in the nearby conference room. It was then that we decided this was enough. This app is far from accurate. Had our kids actually been skipping school or, god forbid dead in a ditch, we wouldn’t know because of the lack of accuracy. I don’t know who okay’d this app but it should be removed or redone immediately! -Karen
  • Inaccurate location/ privacy issue


    By Game player20
    I’m 20 and my parents made my younger sister and I download this app my freshman year of college. My mom and I had a really good relationship until about a month after downloading this app. She and my step dad would look at our locations multiple times a day about where the app claimed we were. For example, I went to the library on campus one night to study and the app showed me sitting in a parking lot two miles away. I later got a text from my step dad who was furious asking where I was and calling me a liar. Another example is, the app said my location wasn’t available and I got a phone call telling me to turn my tracker back on. I no longer have any interest in having a relationship with either of them now. For the parents reading this review, I know you want to keep your children safe but instead of tracking their every move talk to them, establish trust with them and let them know they can come to you about things and have open lines of communication. I promise it will work so much better than any app ever could. Teenagers are smart, they will figure out ways around the app, and if something does happen to them they are less likely to come to you or hide it from you because they don’t trust you just like you’re proving you don’t trust them. So please, If you value your relationship with your children do not get this app.
  • Ruins Parents And Childs Trust With Each Other


    By 139klg
    My family and I have had this app for over 2 years now, and I have never fought with them as much as I do now. This app makes you feel like you’re being suffocated wherever you go, especially as a teenager who’s just trying to have fun and learn life like a normal teen is supposed to do. I am not a terrible kid, and have never done rebellious acts such as sneaking out or skipping school so I’m not sure why my parents put me on the app. There have been multiple times where I am at school, and life360 locates me a few miles away from the location I am currently at which causes my parents to constantly call when I’m busy and doing important things such as tests and just learning in general. No teen should have a constant locator on them with their parents. This causes a rebellious kid who will guaranteed make bad decisions that no parents want for their kid. I know a few people who have life360 that leave their phones behind at home in order to go out to parties or places they’re not supposed to be at in order to get away from being located by their parents. This is a serious issue. I recommend that no parent downloads any locator apps, especially ones that track every single step you take. It is violating your kids personal space, and all every teen wants is to grow up with guidance and have experiences without being coddled.
  • Bad


    By nadia swag
    This app is not good. You may download it bc you want to be a better parent? Are you dumb?? This WILL NOT make you a better parent. Your kid(s) will lose all trust in you, lose all privacy and much more. If you want to know where your kid is, simply already then. No need to stalk. “Oh but they could be lying” oh come on, you’ve been a teen. You probaly snuck around a lot. And do you really not trust your kid? That’s messed up. Wanna know what’s on there phone, don’t snoop. That ll makes trust go down, along with your relationship. Don’t give your kid a screen limit. Are you serious??? Us teens use our phones for more than you think. We don’t play games, and scroll on social media. We see what’s going on in the world, talk to our friends(especially at this time, since we can’t see them) research our questions. And if you say “well you never tell me” or “I never see you doing that” it’s because we do t think it’s THAT big of a deal. So in conclusion, this stupid app will not make you a better parent, or build your relationship ship with them. It will do the complete opposite. In order to be closer, talk to them, don’t be nosey and push them to hard, but have NORMAL convos. Trust them. Support them. And be kind. Teens in this generation are way diffrent. Here’s a lot more drama, and we have diffrent feelings since there’s social media. So don’t compare us to when you were a kid PLEASE.

  • Invasive and Destructive.


    By WRT4 (join Tungsten Hammer)
    I completely and utterly regret downloading this app. It has destroyed my relationship with my son. We started using it about a year ago after some family friends suggested it to us. What started out inside of me as a minor desire to see what he was up to outside of the house turned into my obsession with making sure he is where he claims to be at all times. It has caused many fights, not only between him and I, but also between my wife and I. There are many causes for these fights. For one, the app itself isn’t as accurate as it claims to be. The location tracking feature often does not track where he exactly is, but rather the general area. Additionally, by giving me the ability to see my sons location at all times, the app allowed an obsession to grow inside of me. I began simply being curious as to where he was, but over time, I began checking it every 20 minutes. Like I said previously, many fights were caused over this. As a result, my son believed my wife and I trusted him less, which eventually did happen. He trusts us less as a result, which any parent knows is extremely sad. Ultimately, save yourself the pain. If you need an app to track your children, you probably have bigger problems to discuss with them. This app has only complicated my family dynamics and has proved itself to be almost entirely unnecessary.
  • Thumbs down.


    By Bebby2234
    As an adult leader in teen ministry with a Bachelors of Arts in psychology, I find this app absolutely ridiculous. I truly understand the good intentions behind it, but the obsession by parents has gotten way out of hand, and I have seen it with almost all of the high school students involved in our ministry. When I was in high school, I remember my parents always saying that, while they had many house rules and expected honesty from us, they never wanted to become “helicopter parents”. My parents (and many parents of my friends) used a good authoritative parenting style. I have always respected my parents, and because of that, they trusted my siblings and I to not break the rules (even though we sometimes messed up). However, I have studied and now understand the importance of freedom in the lives of adolescents and young adults. Parents who want to be respected should NOT need to know where their children are 24/7. There is little room for maturity in minors whose parents monitor their every move. Many studies in various psychological journals show that the majority of adolescents will be more likely to disrespect their parents and break rules if their parents do not exhibit some level of trust in them. Therefore, I do not recommend this app to any parents of minors ages 13+, unless there is an underlying variable involved (such as a mental or physical health/disorder).
