Safety so simple, it’s scary

By Amy Johnsonbaugh

As parents, we all want to give our kids some freedom as they get older. Whether that means allowing them to trick or treat with friends this Halloween or play sports after school. When we’re not with them, however, many parents are at least slightly concerned about whether or not they are where they should be at any given time.

Sprint Family Locator is a service that enables parents to remotely locate their children’s devices on a virtual map from their mobile phone, PC or tablet. It gives parents peace of mind knowing they can locate their child on-demand or perform automatic safety check locates to ensure they made it home from school or back from soccer practice. Let’s face it, kids often forget to call or text to let you know where they are, so why not simply check a map instead?

Key Features
  • On-Demand Locates – Unlimited on-demand locates that show you the location of your child on a virtual map
  • Safety Checks – Automatic locates that tell you if your loved one is where they should be at a specific time
