Code9 Mobile

Family Locator

As a parent you're going to be concerned about where your children are, and Code9 Mobile aims to help you keep tabs on where your entire family is.

All smartphones have a variety of ways to determine location, and we take advantage of that functionality to let you keep track of the locations of all of the phones in your account.

Throughout the day Code9 Mobile keeps track of the general locations of your children, and you can see those locations on the website. We take special care to respect both your child's privacy and the battery life of the phone, and as such we don't monitor exact locations until you request them.

At any time you have the option to "ping" the phone for a more up-to-date location. Code9 Mobile will then ask the phone for the current location, using a combination of cellular tower locations and the GPS radio. Although the speed and accuracy of this location depend on a lot of factors, we find that most phones will return a location within a couple hundred feet in a matter of minutes.
