The free WhereAreYou App allows you to locate people via text message. The people you wish to locate don't even need an app.
It's as simple as that.
*Unusable to track anyone, just for one-off location sharing
The WhereAreYou App is NOT useful for tracking, stalking or any other bad things:
- Each location request has to be sent separately
- Each location request has to be approved by the receiver separately
- The location does not update automatically. If the receiver wants to share their location again, he/she has to approve every position again separately
It is useful, for example, if you are waiting for somebody and they are late. You can find out where they are.
Why is this different to other apps?
The WhereAreYou App works via SMS. That means your friends don't need a specific phone or app to be located. It works on most modern phones that have access to the internet. It's almost like magic, yet really simple. You have to try it out.
