I can't see the current location of my Child’s device

Family Zone displays the last known location of your Child's device. If you do not have access to your Child's device, issues with the phone or tablet stop it from sending the current location.

  • Switched off
    Your Child's device is switched off or out of power
  • No internet
    The device may not have access to the internet
  • Timing
    The Location data is sometimes delayed on mobile networks 
  • Network is filtered by your Child's School
    Location data is not sent while on the School's network
  • In Australia and New Zealand, your Child's device has been set up to connect to a Safe WiFi, like the public library
    The Safe Network may block Location data as part of the security and filtering
