If something like device manager were adapted for family and friends with simpler permissions and more frequent updates would be better. This is too over the top and irritating to use. I was looking forward to something like this from Google but instead it is a vibrating ringing mess with very infrequent updates. Hope something better comes out soon. For now it is not very useable for me
DOES NOT WORK! I have set up my trusted contacts half a dozen times. None of them have received a single email from the app. Everytime I open the app it asks me to set up trusted contacts. That is the only part of the app I have ever been able to view.
How about some settings and options. Starting with, if I've made someone a trusted contact, let me choose if I want my phone to vibrate for 5 minutes, annoying the crap out of everyone and wasting battery. Let me choose the ringtone. Also, once you get this working well and we all get used to it, make sure you get rid of it like everything else.
If only it was available in Iceland. Google Play also desperately needs a way to tell people why an app isn't available on some counties.
It should be able to bypass user settings and turn location back on (if it's turned off) though
Use to work well but now not very accurate
Dec 2016 - add your trusted contacts, share your location and request the location of others.
