Verizon Wireless Releases Family Locator
Jul 27, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Verizon Wireless announced Family Locator, a service that allows parents to be informed in real-time about their kids' whereabouts.
According to a release, Family Locator is one of several tools in the Verizon Safeguards suite of products that helps Verizon Wireless customers manage the wireless phones and phone usage on their accounts.
Interactive maps, which are part of Family Locator, enable customers to find the address where their kids are located. With the integration of VZ Navigator, parents can also get turn-by-turn directions to that location. Other features include 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 pool parties, camping trips and more.
In addition, if cookout plans suddenly change time or location, customers can send text messages or directions to multiple family members at the same time after locating them using Bing local search.
Verizon Wireless operates a 3G and 4G network.
