Turning On Location Tracking

Location tracking is typically turned on as part of the install steps on the Child's Android device. Use these steps if you skipped location tracking or turned it off on your Child's phone.

On your Child's Android phone or tablet:

  1. Open the Family Zone app
  2. At the top-right, tap the gear icon
  3. Enter your Parent PIN
  4. In the open Settings screen, tap to turn on Track location

Android 10 and 11 Location Settings

Additional Steps for Android version 10 (2019) and newer:

After tapping Enable Location, Family Zone will display an Enable device location pop-up.

  2. In App Info, tap Permissions 
  3. In App permissions, tap Location
    In Location permission, tap Allow all the time
  4. At the top-left, click the back arrow 4 times until you return to the Family Zone app

You are done activating the Location Tracking. As a Parent, you will be able to see the last known location of the Child's Android phone or tablet from your Family Zone app or the Web portal.
