What is a trusted contact?

Trusted Contacts allows you to share your location with your family so they can locate you if there's an emergency.

To get started you need to select your family members as trusted contacts. After you select your trusted contacts here's what can happen:

  1. You can send your real-time location to your contacts if you're in a disaster or somewhere you feel unsafe.
  2. The contacts you add can ask for your location if they think you might be in trouble. And if you can't respond within a short time, your location will be shared to make sure that someone you trust will know how to find you if you really are in trouble.
  3. Trusted contacts can feel reassured about your safety by seeing if you've moved recently or if your phone's battery is low
