Ratings and Reviews
I have never written a review, but this app has been such a disappointment, that I feel like I owed it to mankind to warn them of its worthlessness. I wish I could give this app 0/5 stars.
You have to pay a subscription ($10 per month)to use this app. For that amount of money, you would think that Verizon could deliver a product that was actually useful.
My wife and I run the app on iPhone Xs. Our son uses an iPhone 6s. Regardless of the device, the app has a clunky interface and is inconsistent in operation at best.
I have not been able to use this without logging in on a daily basis (despite continuously leaving the app open in the background. Sometimes the app lets me log in, sometimes it does not. If every member on the plan is not actively logged in, it seems to only track via cell tower triangulation to give an approximate location of family members. Everybody must be logged in and have the app running in the background for gps localization to be effective.
I am very disappointed and would not recommend this app or service to anyone.
First of all NPXO I don’t think that the majority of users are tracking family members in an attempt to abuse that person, most of that goes in behind closed doors.
But I, as a wife of a husband with serious health concerns and the simple fact that he has his ankle fused and one leg is shorter than the other is cause for me to worry when he is trying to do yard work or garden work and I am either not at home or I am busy with inside clean, laundry, beds, or cooking. I can not hear him if he feel And he had done that while in his wheel chair and had to lay outside behind his truck for 2 hours bc he could not call me from the other competitors......yes at times I check on my son who is 33 but only it I think he has been gone from home for over 24 hours without any notice to us prior.
Verizon, I LOVE THIS APP!!!
Needs lots of work
Wow where to start? Don’t download this app.
It never remembers the log in, asks for the security answer as if using a new device every time.
“Area location” is next to useless. This app has to be “open” not just installed on the phone to get precise location, minimal “family safety” should something happen. Never remembers username/password. Log in menu is unstable, wont accept “auto-fill”. “Notify when leaving or entering” “location geo fence” Unstable and next to never works. Minimal GPS options. Minimal options in general. Very dissatisfied. Especially considering you have to pay for this joke. I found an alternative and will be canceling. Guess Verizon isn’t too worried about improving this app, a 1.8 App Store rating!?? Means they obviously are not gonna update or fix this app. I’ll be deleting, you might wanna avoid installing.
