While with good intentions, Life 360 has gone overboard with its purpose and tracking ability. The app creates distrust between parents and kids and while supporters of Life 360 argue that it ensures safety this is not the case. Kids will always find a way to disable and outsmart apps such as Life 360 and there are many tutorials already on the internet to bypass it. If anything it puts kids in more danger because not putting trust in your child causes them to feel that they are unable to trust their parents when serious situations arise, leading to a disaster that could have been prevented if the child felt they could trust their parents. While location tracking such as Apple’s Find My Friends where the app only tracks current and/or last seen location Life 360 has gone above in beyond, not only providing the child’s entire route of where they’ve been but also tracking how fast their kid is driving at any given point in time. The app enables an unhealthy habit of micromanaging their child and for some families even the wife is tracked constantly by the dad. I have seen other parents at dinners unable to maintain conversations for long periods of times because they are too fixated on their child’s current location. It is a perfect tool for helicopter parents to completely manage their child’s life. In the long run, neither the child nor the parent will benefit. Parents will become obsessed with controlling their child, never learning to let go even when their kid is and adult and ruining their relationship with their child. When children who have spent their entire lives being micromanaged have to live on their own in college they tend to lack necessary skills and independence to thrive.
