Life360 is an amazing app for families that lets you keep track of everyone’s location all the time. It’s like having a digital map that shows where all your family members are. This app is really useful because it means you don’t have to constantly text or worry about not knowing where your child is. When you use Life360, you can check in with your family members and let them know you’ve arrived safely at your destination. But sometimes, kids forget to do that. So here’s how you can ask for check-in information on Life360.

How the App Works

Life360 uses the internet and your smartphone’s GPS to work. With these tools, it can show you where everyone in your family circle is located.

But what’s a circle? Well, it’s the main part of the app. While you can connect with other people using Life360, you don’t automatically see where everyone is. The idea is to create a small online community, kind of like a small group of people you trust. Normally, this is for families, but you can also use Life360 to keep track of your friends and coworkers. They just need to download the app, make an account, and include you in their circle.

Multiple Circles

When I use the app, I can easily check-in by tapping the + button at the bottom of the screen. Then, I just need to tap Check-in, choose a nearby place, and enter the location info. All my circle members will be notified of this.

But how many circles can I send my check-in to? With Life360, I can create as many circles as I want. And the best part is, I can choose to share my location with some circles while keeping it private from others. I can also choose which circles I want to send my check-in location to.

Checking in With Location Turned Off

Although Life360 is all about using GPS to locate circle members, it’s an app that respects your choices. You have the power to turn off GPS tracking if you wish. Just keep in mind that when you do this, all your circle members will be informed that you’ve turned off your location.

Don’t even try using excuses like a dead phone battery because Life360 is smarter than that. The app will let all circle members know that you’ve turned off your location or that you don’t have internet access or that your phone is off.

However, when your location is turned off, you won’t be able to check-in. To prevent fake check-ins, the app only allows check-ins from places close to your actual GPS location. So if your phone’s location feature is turned off, you won’t be able to check-in, and everyone in your circle will know your location is off.

Asking for a Check-in

It would have been great if Life360 had a button to simply ask for a check-in. This would be useful for reminding forgetful kids to let their inner circle know they’re okay. But don’t worry, the app has an insta-message chat feature that lets you communicate with any family member. It may not be the fanciest method, but you can always ask for a check-in directly.

Alternatively, you can always rely on good old text messaging if the app was supposed to eliminate the need for it. And for the most part, Life360 achieves that. But there might be times when you have to go around the app’s features and just tell a circle member to check-in. Parents may be popular for nagging about this, but grownups should check-in too!

Other Great Features

Sometimes, a check-in may not be necessary. With Life360, I can select the most frequently visited places for my family, and the app will notify everyone when someone arrives there. Additionally, the app alerts me when someone’s battery is running low and even provides their battery info, so I can tell when they intentionally turned off their phone or when their battery died.

The app also comes with a crash detection tool that automatically alerts emergency contacts and contacts emergency services with the location. It even sends nearby crime reports, keeping everyone informed about neighborhoods to avoid for the time being.

Life360 provides a 2-day history for each member, so I don’t have to worry about my kids lying to me anymore. The paid version of the app offers access to up to 30 days of history.

Lastly, there’s a Help Alert feature built into the app that’s just one tap away. It contacts everyone in my circle, sends an SMS to everyone, and sends my location to the emergency services in case of an emergency.

One of the Most Advanced Location Tracking Apps Out There

While there are many location tracking apps out there, Life360 is unmatched when it comes to tracking family members within your inner circle. It offers an extensive list of features that go beyond the usual location tracking options. Although there’s no single button to ask for a check-in, the chat feature is always just a few taps away.
