Great! You want to know about...

Several people use Life360 to track their friends, relatives, kids, and their old ones for security or diverse reasons. The idea of tracking may look good to parents or anyone who want to track someone but the target may feel uncomfortable. If you are tired of being tracked, perhaps you want to disable Life360 but you don't want to raise eye-brows or collide with those who are tracking you. Fortunately, we have compiled for you a comprehensive guide on how to fake a location on Life360 without being noticed.


Part 1. What is Life360?

Life360 is a location tracker app used by scores of people to track the location of their friends, relatives, or anyone within their circle. Here, the circle means the people who use Life360 and have agreed to share location details. This app is great if you want to know the whereabouts or just concerned about the security of your kids or old relatives among others. The location tracking function works by taking the GPS location of one's phone, translate it, and put it on the Life360 map for others within the circle to see.

In fact, Life360 offers more than just location tracking. In the app a useful function called "Help Alert" is designed, which users can choose when in a situation where help is needed or if there's an emergency. Besides, every user can add some emergency contacts, whom Life360 will contact in case that an accident is detected.

Part 2. Why do People want to Fake Life360 Location?

Not everyone is comfortable while being tracked wherever they go by people in their circle. And sometimes it is not because they need some freedom to pull off some fishy stuff but simply due to privacy concerns. With Life360, your circle can see your location on the app's map, and therefore they know exactly where you are. This is not so good, especially if you don't want to be exposed so completely for some personal reasons.

Apart from privacy concerns, there is also the issue of personal security. If, unfortunately, you become a target of some malicious people, then chances are that your enemies will take advantage of people in your circle to trace and find you. Such kind of tracking can result in serious catastrophes sometimes.

These two concrete reasons highlight some of the genuine reasons why users are troubled by location sharing on Life360. With a location spoofer tool, however, everyone can fake location on Life360 without being noticed and hence reclaim privacy and security.
