Peace of mind is a tough thing to come by these days. The world is still a generally safe place, but we hear news stories about predators both real and virtual. Small wonder the first time our kids get a smartphone is not a calming moment for parents.
“Wasn’t technology supposed to make us safer?” we might ask ourselves. The answer is that it can … but it generally doesn’t. It takes a little proactivity on the part of parents and family members to ensure the phones that were meant to keep us connected actually do what they were supposed to do.
The GeoZilla Phone GPS Locator & Tracker App is one way people can take back that control, using the power of satellite location to make sure they know their loved ones are safe.
The way it works is simple: A subscription to the service makes your phone the hub for a map that tracks any family members who also have a free version of the app. From that hub, you can easily locate the entire household, no matter where they are.
Of course, the options make this much more than a simple tracker. You can customize notifications for individual family members, set up alerts that show you when they’ve left the house, arrived at school, stopped by a relative’s house or arrived back home.
You can just as easily set up check-ins for yourself to let the clan know you’re OK. What’s more, you can engineer special location-based task reminders for yourself or others. For instance, if someone passes the grocery store, the app might remind them they’re out of eggs and milk.
Even if your kids never open their phones (which is highly unlikely), you’ll still be able to tell if they’re on the move or possibly lost. There’s even a velocity detector that can sound alarms if someone is speeding.
There’s a lifetime subscription to the GeoZilla Phone GPS Locator & Tracker App premium plan for $29, which is 90% off the list price for Komando readers.
