My sister sent me an invitation to join the life360 app so that we could keep track of each other. The constant messages about my sister, and even her husband's whereabouts (which I never wanted to know, and it feels like i"m intruding on his life.), were so frustrating that I deleted the app. It will not stop sending me several (many) email's every day about my sister and her husband arriving home or at work, despite the fact that I have DELETED THE APP!!!. There is nothing on the email except their locations, where they are, no unsubscribe button, nothing. I am frustrated beyond words. I signed into the app on my laptop computer to try to yet delete it again. It doesn't show up on my APP's, or my searches, but yet remains a constant nuisance and apparently I"m locked in. I couldn't be more frustrated. This is the only app I have ever truly regretted getting and if anyone knows how to delete it, please help. If I could give no stars I would. If I could write a more negative review, I would. It isn't right that on the page of this Life360 app they give you every possible choice EXCEPT to delete it. Infuriating.
I have tried a few apps for phone tracking...they were all inaccurate and didn't even show locations that were up to date. This tracker is brilliant, easy to use with added features the others didn't have...not to mention 100% accuate and always up to date...just love it! It's also a bit of fun with messaging etc.xx
THIS APP HAS CAUSED NOTHING BUT GREAT PAIN FOR ME AND THE LADY I LOVE!! THE APP WAS PLACED ON OUR PHONE SO SHE COULD HAVE PEACE OF MIND. IN THE COURSE OF ONE YEAR IT HAS DESTROYED US. THE RELIABILITY OF TIMES AND LOCATION IS COMPLETLY MISLEADING. I REALLY DO BELIEVE THIS APP IS PATHETIC, EVEN IF THIS APP IS FREE OF CHARGE YOU WOULD THINK THE " DEVELOPER " WOULD WANT TO PUT FORTH A QUALITY PRODUCT. A PRODUCT THAT WOULD ENABLE A CUSTOMER TO PURCHASE UPGRADES WITH OUT HESITATION. I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND IT TO A SINGLE PERSON. IT IS NO MORE THAN A CATALYST FOR DESTRUCTION.
My step daughters mom put this app on her phone and has it set to alert her phone every time my stepdaughter leaves our house and returns. It tracks everywhere we go when she is with us. NOT going to happen! Her phone will be staying at home when she is with us! She also tracks her husband! what the heck? WOW.
No privacy at all!
I have the free App on three of my family members phones. The app does not show their precise location. It is close enough though, anywhere from 500 to 1000 feet. I have my app set up to know when they arrive/leave home and when they arrive at work and back. No particular reason to know. I use it just because the option is there. This app will not show you where they are if they are talking on the phone. When the phone is in use the app will show that they, say for instance, just left the movie theatre and are five miles from home then it will appear that they are just hanging out in the same place if they are on the phone. Once they hang up the app will relocate them. If this thing has broken up anybody's marriage I'd have to say that particular marriage/romance was ill fated to begin with. I use it for a sense of security. My adult children dont mind that I know where they are and why shouldn't they? The only people that have argued with me against using this app by saying that I am using it to spy on my family turned out to be cheating on their own. Enough said about that. Besides, if you really wanted to catch your mate cheating on you check their cell phone records, not the ones on their phone (too easy to delete), check the ones kept at the Cell Phone service they are using, but youre going to need their password/code. If they dont give you their code, then get suspicious real fast. Unless they are using an extra phone (Wally-World),then you're screwed, but cheaters always screw up at some point. Love is blind my friend, but its not stupid. Trust your gut.
Becausr of this stupid app. I am often shown in places I am not places I've never been. My fiance takes what it says as gospel. I am beside myself. This app is ruining my life.
I had the app on my daughter's phone and it said we were in 2 different places and we were in the car together. It showed us going on different directions. How do I explain that to my fiance ?
This is the worst app ever
I submit to you my resentment and anger as a result of the information fallacies you have provided to the love of my life. We both signed on to your app to ameliorate our real time knowledge of our respective whereabouts. On several occasions your poor excuse for software provided not only inaccurate but implausible or impossible location information. Close shop now. Your irresponsibility causes havoc. Before anyone else has to waste time explaining your inaccuracies to someone who means EVERY THING to them, shut it down.
I am on a business trip, and this morning I got a call from my husband telling me that he is leaving me because life360 said I left my hotel room and went several blocks away from 5:02 to 7:02 this morning. I was asleep in my room with my phone beside me, but how do I prove that to him? This unreliable app may have ended my marriage of 16 years.
So obviously I do a lot of traveling to other countries. Just this morning I have been to Egypt and Africa but yet have not left my house in texas. Like I have said before life360 is becoming more and more like Facebook meaning it causes issues in relationships and marriages because it is so undependable.
We have been using Life 360 for several years and although it is far from ideal, it is by far better than other similar services that we used before. My friends and I use it when we go to Airventure in Oshkosh WI every year where there are 20 or 30 thousand people in a 300 acre area and have little or no problem in locating each other to within 50 to 100 feet. My wife misplaced her phone and Life 360 found it in our grandaughter's car which was parked outside our daughter's house where she had mistakenly left it. One of my friends likes to travel and I routinely follow him to places live Scandinavia, Taiwan, and other Asian and European sites where it seems to work just as well as in the US. Yes, we have had some of the problems described by others, but feel that its usefulness far outweighs its shortcomings! - HD , Georgia
My husband and I installed this app to find each other in a large crowd. That part works fine, but shortly after we installed it I got an odd text from my husband's work number saying that "home" wants to connect with me with a fake looking link it wanted me to click on. My husband never sent me anything from his work phone, though that number is in my contact list. It seems that somehow this a hack job. I wrote Life360 an email asking them to comment and guess what? Except for a form email, they never replied. We deleted the text and uninstalled the app immediately.

It is a good way to spy on my wife, but the other day she accused me of being in a town 25 miles away at 3:41am and its weird cause the time calculation matched up. I explained how i was abducted by aliens because I had no better way of explaining my self. She then tried running me over with a car for "cheating" on her. Wow! Thanks life 360, now I have to bail her out of jail.
Went to the pub and 2 scum stole my phone out of my hand bag i got home and found it missing but saw on my husband phone it was still at pub went back and confronted the 2 scum at pub and phoned the police they dumped phone and ran i got my phone back best apt ever
Wife thought this would be a great Iphone 6s app for the family. Life 360 continually shows me at addresses I have never been to at times when I have been at home or work. When traveling to and from my work place (2 hours away) it often shows me stopping for long periods of time miles off of the interstate. I am tech savvy and was easily able to set up the app so I am not the root cause of the inaccuracies.
While I was in the bed at work at the fire station, it said I was 5 miles away in another town at a house I have never been at. I was talking to my wife, while I was in my own bed at the station, she mentioned the locator and while I was on the phone with her it showed that i went to that same house AND BACK in 4 minutes. Remarkable that I never left the fire station. Please all spouses realize the uncertainties.
We have Life 360 premium. A lot of the time, we can't locate our family members. It's a bummer because that's why we paid the subscription fee. We hit update, and the update circle goes around and around for 5 minutes and finally reports that the person's location cannot be determined. Why can't it at least notify the other person that someone is trying to locate them. When it works, it's great. I can't condemn it completely. I wouldn't recommend it, however.
Up until a few days ago my husband and I were using this app because a few times he left his phone at a jobsite and then people kept saying that he was being unfaithful to me. So I followed him for a week and wrote down where he was and date and time. He wasn't cheating on me at all. They just hoped I'd leave him so they could have him. So we were fine. Tonight however, it said I was on the other side of town when I was actually a few blocks away at 7-11 getting a drink and heading home when he calls me and accuses me of lying to him. In which he was about to end our marriage because of this app. I had to get on here and show him proof that this app was faulty to change his mind. So unless you fix this crap, I'm never going to use it again.
I have this to keep track of my 17 yr old daughter. Tonight she left around 8 pm to spend the night at her friends. Around 2 am I got a 360 notification saying she left home. I looked up her location on 360 and it showed her a few towns over, in the opposite direction from where her friend lives. I sent her a check in request through 360 and she checked in through 360, it showed her at her friends. Got that? The 360 map was showing her in one location on the map (about 10 miles from where she actually was) the 360 check in was accurate. I think it was showing her movement earlier in the day, just 6 hours behind. Saying she was some here at 230 am when she had been there 6 hrs previous at 830 pm.
The Premium service ($4.99/mo) states you get Roadside Assistance for 80% less than Onstar, AAA, etc. We have been a subscribing member for over 2 years, and when we needed them yesterday for a tow, they informed us they don't actually provide tow service. They simply provide the phone call arrangement call of a tow company. DO NOT purchase the premium service. If you have a smart phone, you can find a tow company just as easy as they can. Don't waste your money.
The whole idea of installing this program was to rebuild trust in my marriage. ... this program falsly indicated my texting at all hours of the night and morning to roughly 5 address locations in an approximately 200 mile radius of me. The number part of these addressed are non- existing, however the street name, city zip are all on the map. The program also falsly stated my logging on and off several times! When I called their support, the rep walked me threw some of my set-up that could have made a problem. I GOT THE SAME READINGS AGAIN! When my spouse called to inquire on this, the life360 tech indicated this was an ACCURATE READING!! I'm devistated! I'm in bed, asleep!! I feel like I need to go spend an insane amount of money to prove the inaccurate readings off my phone!!! Now I look even more guilty because I turned off my location and don't join my circle anymore. ... WHAT'S THE POINT?? IT MADE THINGS WORSE!!
Not only has the app not been accurate, I end up tracking down family members myself, only to discover I now have issues with the billing I will need to address. I have now been charged for two premium memberships two months in a row at $49.95. I would not recommend this app to anyone who is looking for reliability without frustration.
Never seen anything like it Never gives the right location. My wife has diabetes and thought I had lost her. We had a prime subscription to Life360 so I thought I was OK can find her. I when to this street worried crazy. Life 360 was telling me she was right there I walked past her a number of times worried sick. She calls me from home and asked were I am at this is about 3 miles away. What a flippin app! )))-:
I figured it out after three days of installing the software that Life360 is not for me. It looks pretty but dosen't really word. It just says that my internet connection is not okay but it always is. It's irritating. Plus, it almost always shows my child's location which isn't accurate. I just gave it up for FamilyTime. Location tracking is always spot-on and it let me block apps on my child's phone. It's a bonus. But Life360 has been a great dissapointment. Thank lord I didn't switch to Premium straight away.
most on here are correct. It is very slow in keeping up with movement. There are times that it is hours behind. But there are also times it's only minutes behind. It gets frustrating sometimes but for the most part I like it. I use it everyday. It tells me the vicinity my kids are in at least. It's rare that you ever need the exact address. I know when my kids are at their friends or school or the mall etc. It's way better than not having anything at all. I have to tell my kids to log back on about twice a month too but still worth having.
DGM- This app is hit and miss. It is not accurate 90 percent of the time. The time frame they say you where at a location is not correct. The streets are not correct 75 percent of the time. I would not use this app to check on anyone with any accuracy. In the end it will end up messing your relationships up with inaccurate data. I dont know if the pay app is any better. I guess the old adage is correct. You get what you pay for. Or in this case what you dont pay for.
Tried this on our iPhone 6's. This app is hit and miss...it often doesn't respond (states in banner to check connection, when connection is fine). It also says my daughters phone is somewhere its not. I know this because myself or my wife are with her and it locates her miles away somewhere she has never been. When it does work, it's not up to date, but may often be hours behind. Definitely needs more work
Clearly this app isn't reliable because it said my sister was in Florida. Except she wasn't, her phone was definitely in Ohio.
These kinds of mistakes are completely unacceptable. We thought someone had stolen her phone and gone to Florida, or worse, taken her as well. Don't trust this app, it's a complete JOKE.
I hate this app, being a 16 year old, my parents are always on it tracking every $#*!ing movement i make, damn i cant even smoke weed in peace because my mom is always on there asking all these questions. Is there someway to get this app of the app stores?
Unreliable at best. This app is not what you need if you're keeping up with kids, loved ones, etc. Not only does the app report people "can't be located" often, it then blames the person, not their garbage app. I had both phones that we had this app installed on sitting side by side. Life360 showed one 3 blocks away and couldn't find the other. After going through the troubleshooting list it gives you and finding nothing on the list applied I sent an email asking customer service what was the deal. A week later I'm still waiting for a response. Garbage app, garbage customer service, just skip this useless waste of time.
I installed the free version of this app and later decided it was not something I was utilizing, so I uninstalled it. Today I happened to turn off my GPS on my phone and when I did so I got a warning that Life360 could not function correctly with GPS off. I looked back in my list of apps to see if I'd missed something, but there was nothing there(obviously) associated with Life360. I went to their support webpage to find contact info to ask them about this. What a surprise (not). Their contact link is disabled, there is no phone number, and I'm sure the snail mail gets thrown away. So I'm left with some sort of tracking / info -gathering piece of software on my phone that I can't get rid of. I will slam these people in every review site possible. DO NOT INSTALL THIS ON YOUR PHONE unless you want to be spied on.

I don't understand all the negative reviews on this product. I've been using the free version for about a month and love it. It's not perfect but what do you expect for FREE? I plan to upgrade to Premium to add my 84 year old Dad's dumbphone. I'm in Houston and tracking my daughter who is travelling with the Matisyahu tour throughout the southeast. She may be 26 but is still my little girl and it's comforting to keep up with her. Plus I'm in home security and I am testing this app as part of a family security suite of tools.
4-4-16 UPDATE - Based on the negative reviews I see I think its important to note that Life360 is not spyware. Your not going to get NSA accuracy in a free or $5 app. ALso, there may be some differences in phone, network provider or environment issues that could explain the various results. I'm in flat Houston TX on T-mobile with a Galaxy S6 and get generally good results but there are times when locations lag a bit.
For you distrustful people having relationship issues I suggest you invest in a real tracking device that updates more often like ATTI. $24/month, 10 second updates. It is truly real-time precision tracking intended for fleet vehicles but parents and suspicious partners use them too.
It tears family apart! I was at my limit for Internet so I turned it off and was at my senior homecoming party and left around 10 to go eat and got home around 10:50. My mom blew up on me not believe me thinking that I went to go sneak off with my boyfriend and fool around . I would never do that I have too much respect for myself and I was with a big group of friends. Now I'm grounded and consider to be a whore all thanks to life 360
My wife installed this app on my phone, now every time im with my babies mama she comes bustin through tha doe and $#*!s everything up, how do I get this $#*! off my phone
loaded Life 360 Family Locator on 2 identical Windows phones. With both phones in the same house, one phone showed the correct address while the other showed a location 3 blocks away. "Update" did not improve location!
Location is unreliable & Support blames everything on the consumer. One recent night phone was on nightstand while we slept & L360 reported it at 20 different locations in 2mile radius between 12 & 8am. Free is too much for bad info.
Some how this site started to send me texts and there is no way to stop them or tell them I am not interested in their serves. I have to pay for texts so getting messages i don't want is like stealing from me. I texts me about 5 times a day and has been doing so for several days.
How the heck do I opt out. I am not a child and not married who the heck wants to keep tabs on me?
Dear all users,
Please be aware that the sex offender portion is not kept up-to-date. I have been trying to contact the company for weeks concerning this matter and have not been able to reach anyone.I personally know two people listed on the app who are no longer registered sex offenders. Sadly, as great of an idea as I think the app could be, the irresponsibility of life360 is coming to light. I would recommend using your states registry to find accurate information, rather than use this product.
