I have tracking turned on so we can alert each other when we are on the way home.

Us too. Has nothing to do with trust. She's a grown woman and can do what she wants. I have our home automation programmed to turn lights and devices in the house on and off depending on our locations. Or "She's at Costco. Do you need anything?" We have to track phone locations for that. I do agree there are probably people that are weird about it, though. She'd never ask, but if she did, I'd hand her my phone to look through all she wants. She already knows the password. I think people may have trust issues if they worry about other people doing things in their relationship you aren't a part of.

I think most people, other than people tracking their partners, would agree.

I've seen real good done with those apps, such as a person getting in a bad accident and her family was able to find out and arrive on the scene ahead of the first responders.

Yeah honestly I agree with this. If you can't trust your partner then maybe you shouldn't be with your partner. When I'm with somebody I trust them completely and I hope they trust me completely.

I don't believe in tracking my partner's location. Trust is the foundation of any healthy relationship.

I send my live location on whatsapp, but that's more like tracking a food delivery... its just so whoever can see how far away I am. Outside of that, I totally agree. I CAN see a security appeal... if anything was to happen, you'd know where they are... but like... no... all the same, just no.

Agreed. I feel like that's insecurity at its finest. Tracking someone's location should only be used if they're in danger.

...which can't be done if tracking is turned off. SO and I have been together 10 years. The most common use of our tracking app is literally just to see what time the other of us will be home while driving, for example to start cooking dinner. The actual issue here is in assuming that trackers only exist to catch people cheating. There are plenty of innocent and common applications.

Exactly. I track my husband and my 2 teenagers, and they track me, they can see where I am at any given moment and I don't care, because I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary, and my husband feels the same. It's simply for convenience in the case if my husband, I can see if he is on his way home, or exactly where he is if I'm picking him up, or in the case of my teens, that they are safe. This means that I feel good about giving my teens more freedom to stay out late without worrying if they are ok. Why would you care if the people you love can see your location?

Or it's just useful to know where your partner is.

I dont NEED to, it is just convenient. The real question is why would they need it off

by Anonymous 10 months ago

Lol, this is how I would expect an unreasonable partner to gaslight their SO into letting themselves be tracked. " I'm not weird for tracking you, YOU'RE weird for NOT being trackable! "

by Anonymous 10 months ago

So what would the answer be...? Lmao

OR maybe having trackers is safe. How many people get kidnapped or lost.

Not many at all!

It's nothing to do with trust. We don't have location on but I do sometimes ask her to update me when she goes at on her location for safety reasons.

My wife and I don't have it but it does sound like it would be convenient just to know where she is when she leaves her phone on silent and assuming it works with just a GPS connection I think it would make my wife feel better knowing exactly where I am when I go hiking and camping alone. ETA I do agree that you probably have issues if you NEED to track them

We have tracking turned on for a few reasons. It's just a safety thing really. I often visit building sites and other people's homes for work. You never know when one might murder me, or try at least. It helps with car crashes and accidents too. I never look at where my wife is, I don't even know how to use the app, but she checks from time to time especially when it tells her I've left work for three hours and I'm not home 🤣

I drive over the road and my wife likes seeing where I am so she can tell me what the weather and traffic are like. (I don't need her to do this but it makes her feel helpful.)

My bf and I don't live together so we keep location on for safety and when someone says they're on their way, we can predict when to meet each other outside or at the train station :)

by Anonymous 10 months ago

I'd happily share location for safety reasons. Same with phone PIN, in case they ever needed to use my phone. And contact info for my friends and family.

by Anonymous 10 months ago

Sometimes I send my husband or another family member the Glypse messages via text so they can see where I'm at/my ETA etc. because it is easier than updating them via phone when I am, ya know, driving or because I'm meeting a stranger for Jeep parts and would prefer someone find my body.. or just for fun because I'm out of town and they aren't.

My girlfriend has no grasp on time, so it's hard to predict when she'll show up at my house. So it's convenient to know. It's also nice to have if we're meeting somewhere and we need to find eachother. But I generally try to stay away from tracking people otherwise. It's very toxic.

I was on one with my wife and kids for a while but seeing how I'm literally never more than 1 mile from home without my wife I didn't see the need. Plus it was kind of fun to watch her get so bent about me uninstalling the app.

by Anonymous 10 months ago

My wife and I do it. If I'm on my way home, she's not texting me so I can text her back and wreck. She just checks to see how far away I am. If she gets lost going somewhere and has not enough reception for google maps, her phone still shows me it's position. I can direct her to where she's going. It's wonderful.
