  • No Privacy And Inaccurate


    By mightymikeochondria
    This app has absolutely ruined my relationship with my mother. She seems to have serious trust issues despite the fact that I am a straight A student that hasn’t gotten in trouble for many years. Due to the bad location accuracy, my mother thought i was in a closed park during the COVID-19 quarantine. However i was not, I was simply biking by and the app failed to alert her of that. I feel as though i am always being watched with this app and invaded. My mom also comes and gets me to bring me home when I’m biking, despite me previously telling her that i have a charger and i’m going to a friends house. Because if Life360, I can’t live my life like a normal teenager. Because of Life360 time i’m allowed to spend with my friends is limited. Because of Life360 I am constantly bombarded with texts and calls asking “why are you here” or “why are you there” or “come home now”. And it pisses me off. Sometimes this app will randomly ask if i want to only use location when the app is open. Once, i accidentally clicked yes and was instantly asked to come home. Before being given a chance to explain myself i was lectured and had my phone taken for a week. I hope you understand and agree with me that this app, is making life a lot worse than it needs to be. This app needs to be deleted from the app store as soon as possible so i highly encourage leaving a review like mine. Every little bit helps!
  • 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 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.
  • THIS APP IS HORRIBLE


    By olivia.b00
    such an invasion of privacy and emotionally destroys kids. i would even go as far to say it’s used as a way to abuse kids by invading personal space and enabling toxic, abusive parents to control every aspect of their life and avoid developing an actual relationship with their kid that involves trust. this app has done more bad than good. the amount of details it allows a parent to see is too much. so many of my friends have had the relationship w their parents ruined as it gives parents the chance to use it AGAINST their kids. it’s not use for safety, but for CONTROL. kids leave their phones in random places so their parents don’t know where they really are just to avoid their psycho parents tracking them down and watching them while they drive down a street. absolutely terrifying how technology is being used in such a negative way by parents who think they’re being “good parents”. i’d rather have my kid WITH their cellphone and lying to me than WITHOUT it because they left it at a friends house to trick me. pick and choose your battles with your kids and don’t destroy them to be one step ahead of them every time. kids aren’t always going to follow the rules and do right. THATS NORMAL. trust them and treat them fairly with respect of privacy and create a relationship where them lying and sneaking around ISNT EVEN AN ISSUE FOR THE MOST PART. delete this horrible app.
  • 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).
  • No Customer Support


    By Shwatzy
    I was so excited to try this app. Several people I know use the free version, and praise it. I downloaded the app to all 4 of our phones (2 adults, 2 teen drivers). I was very disappointed! First, it notifies you that your child has left 10-15 minutes after the child actually left. It lags and is behind on real time. We were told by a friend to upgrade to the paid version. We figured if we were going to pay, might as well get the best. So we opted for the more expensive “subscription”. Second, only half of our phones were allowed on the “premium” subscription, the others were not. They were only allowed on the “basic” subscription. The account was setup and created on my phone, and it was my Apple account that was going to be charged, but my phone was only allowed basic. So you pay for your entire “circle” to be on your “plan” but your lucky if you can get them on there. There is no number and no customer support!! I read numerous reviews about this same problem. They charge you, for everyone, but not everyone gets the same quality. I also read about how crappy the customer service was. I ended up deleting this app, and canceling my subscription. I hope you never have any problems or questions because they do not care!! There is no way to reach them, take your money and leave you hanging.
  • develop trust with your kids


    By louise j🦋🍄🐌
    this app is bad and a quick google search would give you tons of articles talking about how this app sells your information. but i’d like to address the elephant in the room. if you are getting this app to watch your kids, you must not have a strong relationship. my parents and i are best friends and i don’t have to have this app because they trust me to make good decisions and with that trust i know that if I do make a mistake i can come to them. they know everything in my life, not because they force me to tell them stuff, but because they let me make mistakes and reassure me they are there to help me. respect your kids with space and understanding and they will trust you. i know kids whose parents force them to have this app and they don’t tell their parents anything or trust them. be the parents you wish you have, be better. love, a teen who can’t wait to have kids so they can treat them with respect and kindness and teach the next generation to be thoughtful and understanding. (and if you get this app because you just want to make sure your kid gets to the right place or in case their phone gets lost, i’d suggest find my iphone or simply just asking your kid to check in. AND DONT GET MAD IF THEY FORGET, WE ARE KIDS AND ARE STILL DEVELOPING. being overbearing and yelling doesn’t fix our mistakes, it just makes us scared of you.)
  • Trust?


    By Unknown😺🤗😎🤓🙂😃
    This app has ruined my teenage years. I have no life with my parents constantly monitoring me. “Why does life360 say you’re here?!” “Why does it say this and that”I get why it could be used for safety but parents are abusing the power of this app. There is absolutely no trust in my relationship with my parents. Especially when they found this app. They constantly track where I am. This isn’t right! It should be used for safety not for tracking your children. Parents stop controlling everything your kid does. You didn’t want your parents to know what you were doing every ten seconds did you? Stop controlling your kids and have a little faith in them. Sure the app is okay for if their in danger but don’t check it every ten seconds to see where your kid is. Some the app lags causing it to say you are somewhere that you aren't. Use this for what it’s meant for. Stop taking control of your children. Accept the fact that they are teenagers their gonna get in trouble sometimes but they will learn from it and controlling them will only make it worse when their older causing them to make bad choices when their older with more serious consequences. So LISTEN TO ME! Be a better parent. Stop controlling your kid. Stop trying to keep them from a life. Let them live out their teenage years so they can grow up. Please listen to me. Please.
