Trusted Contacts App Description

Trusted Contacts is a personal safety app that opens a direct line of sharing between you and your loved ones. • Add your closest friends and family as trusted contacts. • Allow trusted contacts to request your location. If everything’s fine, you can deny the request. If you’re unable to respond, your last known location is shared automatically within a custom timeframe (works even if you’re offline or your phone is out of battery). • Proactively share your location if you feel unsafe or find yourself in an emergency. • Schedule a location alert for a future time. • Integration with Google Maps location sharing, so you can easily enable permanent location sharing with selected contacts and find them directly within Google Maps. Whether you’re online or offline, in an emergency or just need reassurance, Trusted Contacts connects you with the people you care about most at the times you need them most.

  • Totally Broken

    By GRob51pzqx7
    Refuses to accept entry of my phone number (ironically, Google already knows it!). Location reporting usually fails. Should be pulled from the App Store until it is at least minimally functional.
  • can’t open then not really working

    I thought finally have a trust app for my family across all phone platforms. However, after I installed it to my iPhone. The app can’t open. Update: Tried again today and it finally installed. I was supposed it worked like the iOS find my friends APP. However, after the first used, I checked the location of another phone, the APP says updated 4 hrs ago. Hello! I set these two phones always share location each other and you told me it updated 4 hours ago? There was no way to “request” current location either after you set always share location. Sooooo disappointed!

  • Doesn’t work on iPhone

    By Jphillips2108
    It worked for all of 5 min. Just long enough to get it set up with contacts but after that it froze and once I closed the app it wouldn’t open back up. 2 big thumbs down!
  • Good concept but

    By Capt. Amazing!
    Worked well in the beginning. Fine world wide range. Unfortunately in the last few weeks only crashes at startup.
  • Won’t open

    By Lyzokha
    Installed, reinstalled, rebooted, reinstalled. App won’t open. Is Google purposely making awful apps for other platforms?
  • Crashes on launch

    By The French Dude
    Hey Google, are you doing any QA before releasing a new app?? Trusted Contacts repeatedly crashes on launch, after the initial setup. I was able to enter and verify my phone number and add one contact. That’s it. After that, it crashes on startup. Killing the app or rebooting the phone doesn’t help. Next up, removing and reinstalling the app. If this still doesn’t help, I’ll be looking for another app.
  • Unusable - crashes on iPhone X

    By Suryan78
    Terrible!! I installed the app just now on ios11.2.1. After setup, when I open the app, it crashes after 20 seconds. Same behavior after 2 retries. Location sharing in my iOS privacy settings is always on for this app. I wanted a “Find my friends” alternative for my family members who are on Android. I thought this app would help. The google engineer’s blog post for this app says it works but I have not read any reviews that says it works. Please update requirements/how to use/how to make it work instructions in the App Store description so that people can find it informational.
  • Stopped working on SE ...

    Tried re-install; no dice. Just freezes at splash screen then quits. Done with it. Too bad!
  • Won’t open on my iPhone

    By Nosh208
    No matter what I do, delete app, reinstall it, reboot my phone, the app won’t open anymore. Can somebody tell me what’s going on?
