Welcome to the new family circle
Answer an age-old question
Our research shows that 6 to 8 text messages a day are dedicated to this question. Why not just open the familywatch map and answer it for yourself?
You made it to the soccer game, the poker tournament, or Aunt Millie’s house. Avoid the "did you arrive okay?" phone call. Check in instead. (Have an emergency? There’s a button for that, too.)
familywatch Places lets you save your favorite locations, so that friends and family will get automatic alerts when you come and go. Sure, it’s a lazy way to check in, but it’s effective!
Group your connections
We default to the Family Circle, but you’ll want to create more for the other people in your life. Aunts & Uncles, perhaps? Babysitters? Dog walkers? Marathon pace team? The sky’s the limit.
Messaging, location sharing, and check ins are all Circle specific, so no one will see anything they don’t need to. Handy, huh?
When you create a Circle, you get to decide who is invited and who gets the boot. Perfect for when Nancy creates a scandal and gets kicked out of the PTA.
You're in control
Not everyone needs to know where you are at all times. Location sharing is specific to each Circle, and you can turn it off and on whenever you want.
Locations are standard, but you can also choose to see safety points like hospitals, fire and police stations. Checking out a new neighborhood? Turn on crime markers to see what’s going on around you.
As familywatch has evolved, we’ve done everything we can to put you in the driver’s seat. You control the invites, you control when you share your location, you control who goes in what Circle, you decide which Places you’re going to save and more.
While you might invite Uncle Bob or Kathy from the YMCA to join a Circle, at its heart familywatch is about family. Sure, you You may want to wring their necks sometimes, but you’d do anything to keep your family connected. We get that. Everything we do is designed to help you manage the chaos that is daily family life. From seeing where everyone is on a map to letting them know you’ll be five minutes late, we’ve designed familywatch to make things a lot easier.
Knowledge is power
And we want to spread the knowledge around. At familywatch, we believe it’s important for everyone in the family to know what’s going on. We’re not about people sneakily tracking their loved ones, we can’t stop anyone from uninstalling the app, and there’s no way to hide the fact that our app is installed. Call a family meeting, set rules together, and then use our app to give everyone peace of mind and stay in sync throughout the day.
We're here for you
You trust us with your whereabouts, and that's not something we take lightly. familywatch uses top-notch GPS technology, and your maps and chat channels are built with bank-level security. Your locations and conversations will always be private, available only to people you invite.
