  1. Family Locator is a simple, secure service that lets you and your family locate each other's phones from your mobile device or computer. Puedes usar Family Locator para:

    • Localizar teléfonos en una foto aérea o mapa

    • Controlar cuando tus familiares llegan o se van de los lugares designados

    • Receive scheduled location alerts automatically on your phone, by text message or email

    • View your family members' location history for the past week

    Para obtener más información sobre las funciones de Family Locator, visita la página de Family Locator .



  2. Family Locator helps you stay connected to your family by making it easy to keep track of the location of your family members' phones, providing peace of mind.

    With Family Locator, you can share the location of your family members' phones, receive notice when a family member leaves a designated area, receive driving directions to a family members' location, and more.



  3. Family Locator es compatible con todos los planes mensuales estándar con una cuenta de Mi Verizon activa. We also recommend a data plan for participant phones, because data is used whenever a family member is located.

    Note: The Family Locator service must be added to your account with at least one family member administrator, and one participant.

    Family Locator is not available for prepaid or business accounts.



  4. Family Locator costs $9.99/month for up to 10 lines on your account.

    Standard messaging rates apply. Data charges may apply for app downloads and locating activity.



  5. The Family Locator app is available for both Android® y iOS devices. Open the app store (Google Play™ or Apple® App StoreSM). Si la aplicación aparece en los resultados de búsqueda, tu dispositivo es compatible y puedes descargarla.

  6. You can locate any web-capable mobile phone on your family's account with no additional setup required.

    However, you'll get more precise locations and additional features with Android phones, by installing the Family Locator app on the participant's phone (requires Android 4.4 or newer).

    To determine if your phone is compatible with the Family Locator app, open the app store on your phone and search for "Verizon Family Locator". Si la aplicación aparece en los resultados de búsqueda, tu teléfono es compatible.

    **Accuracy may be lower in rural areas or where Verizon network coverage is limited.



  10. Yes, if a family member's lost phone is turned on and in the Verizon Wireless coverage area, Family Locator can provide the phone's location. In addition, for Android phones with the Family Locator app installed, Family Locator will show the phone's last reported location, even if the phone has lost power or is outside the área de cobertura de Verizon Wireless.



  11. Se implementan varias funciones de seguridad para proteger tu cuenta de Family Locator:

    • Solo familiares autorizados (designados por el Propietario de la cuenta) pueden localizar los teléfonos de otros familiares.

    • Family Locator requires users to sign in to My Verizon in order to locate any family members' phones in the app.

    • The account administrator can select which phones can be located by Family Locator, and which family members can locate other members' phones. The administrator can also choose whether to share their own phone location.

    • Only the account administrator can set or change the privacy controls.

    To maintain this security, it's very important that you and your family keep your account information private and don't disclose your My Verizon user ID or password to others.

Uso de Family Locator
  1. To set up and start using Family Locator on your phones, follow these 4 easy steps:

    1. Sign up - Sign up for a Family Locator subscription on Mi Verizon. Go to the Family Locator website, then tap or click Get it Now and follow the sign-up steps.

    2. Make sure location services are enabled on all the devices you want to locate. To turn on location services, go to the Settings app on your device.

    3. Install the Verizon Wireless Family Locator App - Install the app on the administrator's phone and on any Android phones you wish to locate (iPhone app for members is also coming soon). To get the app, go to the app store on your phone and search for "Verizon Family Locator".

    4. Learn more - Get more details on how to use Family Locator by viewing the Help section under the menu icon.
    5. Note: If you have a phone that is not an Android or iPhone (such as a basic phone), there is no software or apps to install. We'll still be able to locate the phone, but the location will be less precise.



  2. Sign in to Family Locator using your Mi Verizon user ID and password. Other family members don't need a Verizon ID to use Family Locator, unless you want them to locate other members' phones using the Family Locator app.

    If you allow other family members to locate members' phones, they will need a My Verizon user ID. Each family member with locate privileges must use their My Verizon ID and password to sign in to the Family Locator app or Family Locator page. If the family member hasn't registered for My Verizon yet, they'll need to registrarte en Mi Verizon and create a user ID and receive a password.



  3. No, only the Family Locator account administrator can change any Family Locator settings or set whether someone's phone is allowed to locate others or be located.

    Other family members can:

    • Locate family member phones (if allowed by the administrator)

    • See the names of other members on Family Locator account


  4. Yes, you can designate anyone on the Family Locator account to be the administrator. There can be only one administrator at a time.

    To change the administrator:

    • Visita Manage My Safeguards en Mi Verizon.

    • Find Family Locator and select View Details and Edit.

    • Select Add or Remove Members.

    • Change the use roles as desired and Save.


  5. No, the phone must be turned on and connected to the Verizon network to be located. In addition, to obtain a precise location, the Family Locator app must be installed on any Android phones (iPhone app for members is coming soon), and GPS and Wi-Fi must be enabled. Note, if the phone enters "doze" or "sleep" mode to conserve battery during inactivity, the device will not provide precise location information.

    To prevent an Android phone from blocking Family Locator during "doze" mode, follow the instructions in "How do I prevent my Android phone from blocking Family Locator during doze mode?", below. Also note, the phone may not be locatable if it is outside of the área de cobertura de Verizon Wireless.



  6. To obtain a precise location, the Family Locator app must be installed on the member's phone. The app is currently available for Android, and an iPhone app for members is coming soon. In addition, to obtain a precise location the device must be awake (not in "doze mode"), GPS and Wi-Fi must be enabled and available (which usually requires the device has a clear view of the sky).



  7. To trigger an arrival or departure alert, the phone must be powered on and connected to the Verizon network within the área de cobertura de Verizon Wireless, and a precise (GPS or Wi-Fi) location must be available.

    In addition, if the device has entered "doze" or "sleep' mode to conserve battery during periods of inactivity, this will typically prevent Family Locator from communicating with the system. In these scenarios, Family Locator won't be able to obtain a precise location, and arrival/departure alerts may be delayed.

    Family Locator will send the alert as soon as it receives a location indicating that the device is within the area defined in the alert conditions.



  8. Newer versions of Android include a feature called doze mode, which shuts down certain functions during periods of inactivity to conserve battery power. If an Android phone enters doze mode, it will normally block Family Locator, which prevents finding precise locations.

    To prevent an Android phone from blocking Family Locator during doze mode, turn off the "Optimize battery usage" feature under the Battery setting in the Settings App. To locate this setting on most recent Android phones:

    • Open the Settings app.
    • Select Battery.
    • Tap the Unmonitored apps.
    • Tap Add apps.
    • Selecciona Family Locator.
    • Tap DONE.


  9. To set up automatic scheduled location alerts, select the Alerts tab in the Family Locator app, then select Scheduled Alerts and follow the steps.

    If you have an Android phone with the Family Locator app, you'll receive notification alerts on your phone. Otherwise, you will receive a text message. You can also receive alerts via email by entering your email in the "Additional recipients" field.



  10. To set up arrival or departure location alerts, select the Alerts tab in the Family Locator app, then select Arrival/Departure Alerts and follow the steps. If you have an Android phone with the Family Locator app, you'll receive notification alerts on your phone. Otherwise, you will receive a text message. You can also receive alerts via email by entering your email in the "Additional recipients" field.



  11. Yes, you can get directions to your family member's phone location in the mobile app, using VZ Navigator® or another map app.

    To get directions, tap on the family member's name in Family Locator, then tap the directions icon on the bottom right of the screen.



  12. Participants will get a text message when their phone is added to Family Locator. They will also get a reminder message each month that their location may be shared with anyone designated by the account's administrator.



  13. The exact steps vary by phone, but in general you can enable location services on Android phones as follows:

    • Open Settings on your phone.
    • Select the Location setting.
    • Make sure that Location is turned on, and set to "High Accuracy".

    In addition to enabling location services on your phone, make sure that the app permissions on your phone allow Family Locator to access your location.



  14. If you have previously installed Family Locator on your family members' devices, when you update to V6, you will also need to ensure your other phones are updated as well, to ensure that they're fully compatible.

    To check the Family Locator app version, launch the app, then select About under the menu icon. If you need to update, go to Google Play Store and search for Verizon Family Locator, then select Update. Be sure to launch the app after the new version is downloaded.



  15. In most cases, Family Locator can still provide a location if Location Services is turned off, but the location may not be as precise. Some Android devices allow you to set up a restricted user profile to prevent the user from changing the settings. Consult your device user guide for more information.



  16. Sí, ambos servicios pueden instalarse en la misma cuenta.

    Note: Family Locator can't manage or track a phone during time restrictions set by FamilyBase. Learn more about time restrictions in the Configurar controles section of our Verizon FamilyBase How to Use Guide.



  17. If you upgrade to a new phone, you will need to install the Family Locator app on the new phone. You can send a text message to the phone with a link to download the Family Locator app. To send the app, following these steps:

    • In Family Locator, go to Modify Member Profiles in the menu.
    • Select the family member in the list.
