Crash Detection has not been tested on motorcycles, scooters, or three-wheel trikes. However, we’re always working to improve the reliability and the types of collisions that we can detect.
In order for our app to work properly, we need a few permissions. Don’t worry – when you create an account, we help you through this quick and easy process.
- Location – Life360 locates you and your family members on a shared, private map. This setting allows us to show location accurately and quickly.
- Phone permission – Life360 has a feature called Driver Care Support that, with a single push of a button, connects you to a live representative over the phone. Our live representative knows who you are and where you are to assist in roadside situations such as tows, jumps, and lockouts. We also offer an immediate emergency response in the case of a vehicular collision. Phone permissions allow us to connect your phone to the live representative and authenticate that you are the one calling them.
