Turn off Wi-Fi and data. For iPhone, teens can turn off WiFi and data for the Life360 app only. Go to Settings, find Life360, turn off Cellular Data, Background App Refresh and Motion & Fitness. The location on Life360 will be paused at the location.
If you want to turn off Life360 without the parents knowing, you might try turning on Airplane mode. Turning on Airplane mode disconnects your network and GPS. In such a state, Life360 will stop updating your location. In other words, your location will not be visible to other circle members.
Just open the fake GPS location app and navigate to where you want your location to be. Click the green play button and your phone will now think you are located where you navigated to on the map.
Turn on Airplane mode. A simple way to temporarily prevent people from knowing your location is to turn on Airplane mode. It is a built-in feature available in almost all types of mobile phones. Note that Airplane mode also prevents all notifications and use of cellular networks, phone calls, or messages.
2 Does Life360 notify you when location is disabled? Yes, your Circle members will receive a notification letting them know that your location or GPS is disabled.
With your iPhone or iPad connected, select Toolbox at the top of the program and then VirtualLocation on this screen. Choose anywhere on the map or use the search bar to choose where you want to spoof your location. Select Change virtual location, and then select OK when you see the confirmation prompt.
Tap the Settings app, scroll down to Life360 and enter the menu. Click the button next to Background app updates to turn it off. This way you are 100% sure that the location will not be updated when the WiFi is turned off. Android users need to go to Settings > Apps > Allow use of background data and tap Life360.
Go to Settings > About Phone and repeatedly tap on “Build Number” until a message says “You are now a developer!” After that, go to Settings > System > Developer options or settings > Developer options on Samsung devices. Scroll all the way down to “Select Mock Location App”. Select Fake GPS from the list.
Airplane mode doesn’t work to hide your location. GPS available on iPhone or other device is a separate system that sends and receives signals directly from the satellite.
The answer to the question is NO! You will definitely not be tracked if you turn on Airplane mode.
Within the iOS or Android app, you can also communicate with each other in a group chat based on your circle. However, if someone checks your location, both the Android and iOS versions of Life360 will not notify you or give you a hint.
