How it works
The user who installed the application can be either «observed» or «observer», possibly simultaneously.
In order to become «observable» you need to start the location service in the «I’m watched» menu, and allow the application to access the location and access to the Internet.
Important: You should not disclose your identifier to third parties.
When you exit the application or reboot the device, the service continues to run in the background. Stop the data transfer service through the same menu or by uninstall the application.
In order to become an «observer» you must obtain the identifier of the «observed». On the «watched» device in the «I’m watched» menu, send your ID to the «observer». After receiving the identifier, the «observer» through the «I’m watching» menu can receive data about the location of the «observed» and see it on the Google map. «Observed» can pass its identifier to several «observers».
