Locator Apps

For a little peace of mind (and a few bucks), there are some apps you can download prior to Halloween, so you can keep tabs on everyone in your trick-or-treating crew. Picniic, a family management dashboard, allows you to track your kid’s locations and helps the entire family stay in constant communication by checking in once arriving at a destination. With FamilySignal, this app not only tracks the location of your kids, but it also includes a panic button that will alert you as soon as your child has pushed it. If you know exactly where you’re headed on Halloween, the Life360 app allows you to create favorite spots and anytime your child arrives at that location you’ll get an automatic notification.

Picniic is available for IOS, $11.99/monthly subscription.

FamilySignal is available for IOS, Free for two family members or $4.99/month for all family members.

Life360 is available for IOS and Android, Free or $4.99/month for premium features.

How do you keep your kids safe and visible on Halloween? We would love to hear your ideas in the Comments below.
