Sprint family locator android application

 

Checking in on a family member in 2016 is much easier than ever, and perhaps less invasive, too. We don't have to call or text to see that Sally hasn't left the house or that Dad is driving and should be home by 7.

We have apps that can passively keep an eye on friends and family members' whereabouts, and that's a huge relief. No more worry when someone forgets to call or is held up. A quick glance at your tracking app tells you all you need to know -- and then you can relax.

If tracking the people you love sounds shady, or you're worried about spying, don't worry. These Android and iPhone apps are safe and I've used all the ones I recommend below. Contacts have to agree to be tracked, and the apps come with very clear instructions for use.

For security reasons, phones receive a text message from Sprint Family Locator when they become locatable. Additionally, locatable phones receive a periodic notification via text message that they can be located. These messages are received about once a month.

As an added measure of security, if you sign up for Sprint Family Locator using a temporary password, everyone on your Sprint account will receive a one-time text message that you have signed up for the service.

Sprint knows that your location information is sensitive and has taken steps to ensure that information is secure. All of your location information is stored in a secure facility and is deleted in seven-day intervals.
