By on March 19, 2012

Verizon Wireless customers on a Family SharePlan can now add Family Locator to all lines on the existing account for only $9.99 per month. Staying in touch is a must when families are busy juggling schedules that include sports practices, carpools after-school activities and science projects. With Family Locator, the simple and secure service from Verizon Wireless, parents stay informed in real-time of their kids’ whereabouts when they might not have the time or chance to connect live. Now available for one low cost, families get all of the same features to help them keep up with any family member on the plan.

Family Locator is accessible from phones and PCs, and parents or account owners can set up alerts that let them know when their kids have taken their phones to different locations. With interactive maps and the integration of VZ Navigator®, customers get turn-by-turn directions to the address where their kids are located, making pick up a breeze. A subscription to VZ Navigator is required for integrated use, and data charges may apply for download and use of the app.

Family Locator also features recurring or one-time alerts that can be sent to multiple recipients via phone or email so each member of the family can be automatically reminded of upcoming school plays, doctor appointments or other can’t-miss activities. Want to see how the service can work for you? Check out the Family Locator video on the VerizonWirelessTV YouTube™ channel.

Family Locator is one of several tools in the Verizon Safeguards suite of products that help Verizon Wireless customers manage the use of wireless devices and data usage on their accounts. A new video from Verizon Wireless entitled “How To: Manage Usage With Usage Controls from Verizon Wireless,” gives customers step-by-step directions from Verizon Wireless representatives on how to manage their families’ wireless usage.
