Location History is the newest addition to our Family Locator feature. With Location History enabled, you can see on your Family Locator map the different locations your child's device has been in a day.
Premium subscribers will have access to 7 days worth of Location History data, and Premium+ subscribers will have access to 30 days of data.

*Location History is currently only available in the iOS parent OurPact app and our web app but will be available for Android app users soon!
To get started with Location History in your PARENT app, please ensure:
1. Family Locator is Enabled
Launch OurPact > tap the Locator Map on your child's profile > Toggle ON ‘Family Locator.'
- For iOS parent devices, tap the Setting icon and then Toggle ON 'Enable Locator.'
With Family Locator and Location History enabled, your child's location will be updated roughly once a minute. When the device has been in a location for five minutes or more, a 'breadcrumb' will be added to the map, and the location will be stored in the location history.
At the bottom of the Locator map, you will see a 'drawer' that, when opened, will provide details about your child's location history and allow you to scroll or search for different days of available data; days with available data will be displayed in teal on the calendar.
Some important notes about using Location History:
- Only one child's location history will be displayed at a time.
- You can tap on another child's profile on the map to see that device's location history.
- Detailed information about a breadcrumbed location can be found in the drawer OR by tapping on the breadcrumbed location on the map.
- Tapping a breadcrumbed location on the map will allow you to add the location to your savedPlacesas well as get directions to that location (using your default GPS app).
