How can we permanently locate an iPhone of a child, family member or friend [Find My & Find Friends]

Location services of a mobile device (Android or iPhone phone) are very useful when someone is wandersThis kidnapped, sequesteredHas a serious health problem or suffered a accident.

It is very important for every parent to know permanently where is his child, to know how to reach him in the shortest time if an unexpected problem arises. It is also very important for the child to tell the parents where they are going and with whom, especially when they come in contact with strangers. For example, when children are required to take a car at hitchhiking, taxi or car sharing (Uber, Bolt, Yango), it would be ideal to notify their parents by SMS or phone, car number, color and destination to which they are heading. .

These days Facebook is circulating a message of encouragement in this regard. Everything based the tragic events in Caracal (Olt, Romania), where two minor girls disappeared, without knowing exactly at this moment whether or not they are still alive.

FOR DAUGHTERS OF GIRLS. AND THE BOYS.

EACH DATE WHEN USING A TAXI, IN BUCHAREST, IN THE COUNTRY OR ABROAD, I HAVE SENT ME A MESSAGE WITH THE NUMBER OF THE MACHINE IN WHICH IT IS WANTED. BECAUSE THEY TELEPHONE DURING THE RISE, STILL BEFORE THE driver hears that he knows where he is. AND TAKE THE PLACE IN THE RIGHT-RIGHT. NOT AS I CONTROL IT, BUT I KNOW WHERE I CAN TAKE IT. HOW MANY HOURS DO YOU SAVE ME?

A simple method for parents is to use location services and applications on children's phones. In this era, most children have smart phones and almost permanently connected to the Internet.

Let's take the scenario where the child and parents have iPhone phones. In this case, there are two applications developed by Apple and found by default on Apple devices. Find iPhone si Find Friends. As a parenthesis, starting with autumn, with the launch of the operating system iOS 13 for iPhone, these two localization applications will be transformed into a single application. Find My.
