LOCATION SHARING AND TRACKING

The Namola App allows the ability for you to share your exact location with trusted contacts from within the app. This function is useful in a multitude of scenarios — on your commute from home to the office and back, going out at night with friends, outdoor activities around the neighbourhood, going away for the weekend, or just popping down to the shops — basically any situation or activity that you can think of where it would be a great idea for someone to know that you are safe, or vice versa.

The functionality and setup of this feature is easy, and part of the existing free app:

 

  • Go to the ‘Track’ tab at the bottom of the Namola app home screen.

  • Tap the “Add a contact” button at the bottom.

  • Find the person you want to share your location with.

  • Decide whether you want to live-share your location: Always / For the next hour / Until the end of the day (or Never).

  • Hit the ‘Send Invite Button’ and they will get a notification that you are sharing your location.


Note: If you invite someone to track you who isn’t using the app yet, they’ll get an SMS invite to join Namola. Perhaps let them know and get them started with the Namola App?

To see the location of contacts that have shared their location with you:

 

  • Go to the ‘Track’ tab at the bottom of the Namola app home screen.

  • Tap the ‘Track’ button at the top of the screen.

  • This will show you all your trackable contacts.

  • Tap the contact that you would like to see location of.

  • Once in this screen, you can set up movement notifications with the 'Notify' button. (More detail below.)

  • You can also navigate directly to that person’s location from inside the app by tapping the ‘Navigate’ button.

How to use the Notifications feature:

 

This is a helpful function for parents to know when their kids arrive or leave from school to home. Or if you are perhaps meeting friends or family in a public space and want to know when they arrive. Or want to know when your significant other leaves the gym. Here’s how you do it:

 

  • Open Namola and go to Track.

  • Select a contact that is sharing their location with you.

  • Tap the ‘Notify’ button. 

Choose whether you want to be notified:

  • when they leave their current location, or 

  • when they arrive at your current location.

IMPORTANT: Never share your location with someone you don’t trust with your life. (And Namola puts you in charge — only people you’ve explicitly shared your location with will be able to track you. Nobody else, not even the staff at Namola.)
