A geo-fence is a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area. Geo-fences vary in size and shape and can be created around a specific location (i.e. a house or hotel), a wider area of interest (i.e. a town, city, or region) or a route you plan to take over land or water.
When you create a geo-fence for a contact:
- You can choose to be notified when that contact enters or leaves the designated area.
- Alternatively you can create geo-fences for yourself to be notified if you enter, leave or transit through a geo-fence saving you from actively checking in.
Only contacts that you have enabled to track your location are able to create geo-fences for you, and these can be easily viewed and managed in the app.
