Summary: Life360 is an excellent and important application that many families use to share location, which helps you always keep in touch with your family or people you know. But for most of us, privacy is also important. In this article we will introduce you to how to turn off the location of Life360 on IOS to protect your privacy.

Overview Life360

Life360’s main function is location sharing, and the data sharing is only carried out among family members that you have agreed to. With the Life360 app, parents can see where their children are at any time and don’t have to worry about whether their children are going somewhere they shouldn’t be.

In addition to location, Life360 also does a good job of security and communication. Users can seek immediate service, find a nearby hospital or police station, or communicate with family members by text or message.

However, in some cases, you may be concerned about privacy issues. Spouses can track each other’s movements. It’s great if you go home from work as usual, but what if you want to stop and buy an anniversary gift for your spouse? Or, what if you are in a bad relationship and need to seek help secretly.

Method 1: Turn Off Location Services and Wifi on IOS

Luckily, in order to maintain privacy, Users can establish an unreal location for Life360 by turning off their location services and wifi on IOS. To ensure that Life360 can no longer track your location, please follow these steps:

  1. Turn on the power-saving mode. This convenient feature of iPhone/iPad can prevent background apps from refreshing.
  2. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi to turn off Wifi.                                         iphone-wifi-turn off
  3. Disable the application by Settings > Life360 and turning off cellular data.life360-turn off cellular data
