Find The Kidz
Ever wondered where the Kidz are but hesitated to call them because you do not want to compromise their feeling of independence?
Find the Kidz is the first mobile application dedicated to locating your children in a non-intrusive manner and can update you with important information regarding their movements.
The Application’s unique notification system allows you to receive notifications when your child arrives or leaves selected ‘Known Locations’ or when your child ventures outside a selected ‘Safe Zone’, ensuring your peace of mind and your child’s independence.
Recognising the importance of security, Find the Kidz does not require the registration of personal details for the use of the Application.
Utilising the latest Smartphone technology, Find the Kidz:
1.uses your child’s Smartphone to determine their location.
2.reports locations to your (the parent’s) Smartphone in a user friendly manner.
3.optionally notifies you when your child leaves a specified Safe Zone (being a selected distance from a specified location).
4.optionally notifies you when your child arrives or leaves two selected Known Locations, which may be named individually (eg home and school).
5.optionally notifies you when a connection is lost or re-established with your child’s Smartphone.
Find the Kidz can view the location of up to five children and there are no ongoing charges* to utilise the application.
The Two Find the Kidz Applications
The most cost effective way to utilise Find the Kids is to:
•load the free of charge Location - Find the Kidz Application on your child’s Smartphone. This application allows the child’s location to be determined and does not include monitoring features necessary to view another child’s location, and
•load the paid Find the Kidz Application on your (the parent’s) Smartphone. This application allows you to view your child’s location and receive notifications. The Application does not transmit your location unless you ‘tick’ Allow Incoming Connection Requests.
How it Works
The Find the Kidz Application utilises phone tower triangulation, Wi-Fi locations and GPS to determine your child’s location, provided each of these services are turned on in your child’s Smartphone.
As a result Find the Kidz relies upon the accuracy of your Smartphone’s GPS transmitter, your phone carrier’s network and Google’s Wi-Fi mapping to determine the location of your child’s Smartphone. Find the Kidz will report the most accurate location it receives from each of these sources.
The Application reports the accuracy of your child’s location by placing a shaded circle around the reported location, indicating the vicinity your child is located.
The privacy and security of your data is the highest priority for Find the Kidz.
No personal data is collected by the Application as a unique Device ID is utilised by the Application.
The Device ID is used to support connection requests from the parent to the child’s Application.
All communication with the Find the Kidz server is secured with industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology – the same technology that secures billions of e-commerce sales each year.
All location data is permanently deleted from our servers on a rolling monthly schedule.
Find the Kidz will never sell your data (as we don’t have your personal details) or use it for marketing purposes.
Our revenue is generated by selling the Application to you and not via Application advertising.
Whilst Find the Kidz has taken all reasonable steps to ensure your security, you are responsible for safe guarding your Device ID. Such steps as a minimum should include placing a pin on your Smartphone for access.
*standard data charges apply to your phone network carrier.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
