Family by Sygic Keeping Family’s Safely Connected #familybysygic

We are a family of Smartphone users. I was given phones for my entire family over a year ago and we have all been using them ever since. ALL OF US (just not the 4 year old) I often hear other parents comment about tweens and teens having phones. Many parents are against them. At one time, I was too.
Until I was out and needed to call home. I could not find a payphone anywhere! When I finally did, it was dirty, broken and cost .50 cents. I knew my kids needed to be able to get a hold of us when needed. Plans change. For us and them. The more the kids ventured out on their own the more the need for them to have a phone was necessary. 
Two weeks after our oldest son got his phone I was texting him. I was trying to let him know I was running late and would not be home. I wanted to let him know where I hid the key. 
He was not answering me. Immediately I start worrying and calling and getting more and more angry. I wasted a lot of time and was concerned he was on his way home and could not get in. Turns out he had his headphones on and was hanging at his friends house. No worries in the world. If I had known about Family By Sygic I cold have saved time and stress. 
What is Family By Sygic you ask?
A new app for both Android and Apple smartphones to keep you in the loop of where your family is. Keep you all connected and most importantly, keeping the kids safe. 
Keep your kids safe and let your entire family be in touch. Family by Sygic is the family locator, children safety & emergency alerts app awarded by the largest parent-testing community Parent Tested Parent Approved.

Family by Sygic was created by parents like you:

  • Designed as an easy tool for you & your kids
  • Even if you are busy it keeps you in touch 
  • Privacy of your family is top concern for us
  • High quality positioning is guaranteed
  • Battery consumption optimized for daily use
  • Private mode for parents – administrators
  • Only a parent- administrator can manage family members and safe/un-safe zones
You no longer have to worry about where your kids (tweens and young teens) are, whether they are safe at home or playing out. Family by Sygic lets you share location with your kids and family using the one thing we always carry around – the Smartphone. It keeps you all in touch, lets you see where everybody is in real-time and gives you peace of mind.
Family by Sygic helps parents in their busy day – they can set up familiar places as Safe zones and dangerous places as Un-safe zones and the app will automatically notify them when children enter or leave these areas.
Family by Sygic is a great help if you wish to teach your kids responsibility and self-reliance but want to have peace of mind at the same time. You don’t have to keep calling your kids all the time to check on them.  Kids can “check-in” to tell you where they are and in need send an “alert” with their exact location.
Family by Sygic cares about your family privacy because only the people in your family can see each other’s position and share free messages with each other. Parents can also choose a completely private mode so that they are not visible on the map.
The application is available as a free download on App Store and Google Play so parents can try it out. The app will always remain free for one parent + one child.  In coming weeks they will launch in-app purchase payments. The cost will be 3,99 USD/ per family (that consist of more than one parent and one child) / per year.
Below is how the app appears on your phone. I was surprised how easy it was to use. It is very clear to read and the colours make it very easy. menu
If you are a working parent who has kids that come home alone after school, or a parent of a child who is independent and ventures off on their own I urge you to try this App out. Peace of mind and child’s safety is priceless. I am so happy technology is being used in such a positive and helpful way for families.

    You are absolutely right. Peace of mind is priceless. My girl's phone has not been activated yet. She uses it as an ipod and texts and takes photos too. But I am thinking it's time to get her the phone activation too. She gets my hand me downs. So this app sounds great! Thanks for letting me know.

    Would love to have 1 for my son!

    It truly gives a parent peace of mind knowing that there child can check in no matter where he is. Great for emergency.

    Being a mom of soon to be 7 children, having 1 for my tween son would be great, especially when he has a sleepover at a friends house, or anywhere really

  15. I would like to try this app b/c I worry when my hubby is out with his buddies, and I hate having to make him check in all the time. It would be nice to just be able to check, and my hubby could do the same. We could quickly just see where the other was. Sometimes as he is leaving work someone stops him and he is stuck there and can't tell me. So this would be great to just quickly check.
