Google Trusted Contacts app lands on iOS

Google has just solved that problem by bringing its Trusted Contacts app to iPhone.

In addition to working across platforms, it also offers an additional level of control ... The app that serves as a personal safety app for smartphone users will now allow users to customize the timeout of location requests to share their location with the trusted contacts.

The idea is that if you're in the wild, or somewhere unsafe, you can set a time period, and after that, the app automatically shares your location with contacts.

It's worth noting here that users can deny a request to share their location, but if they don't respond it will be automatically shared at a pre-determined time after the request is made. For example, Android users will be able to add trusted contacts by number, as well as by email address. Google says the new version of Trusted Contacts can now be set to delay up to an hour before automatically sharing a user's location with someone else, or it can be set to do so immediately.

The request approach to me makes this more useful on a casual basis.

In the "view" page an instance you're sharing your location with your contact, you can also post updates and share links to a location on Google Maps.

Ever wanted to use Find My Friends with your Android friends? But because I'll be alerted to requests, I'd happily add them to this app.

Trusted Contacts app promises to help the users connect with the people they care about the most or at times when they need them the most. The update includes a couple of new features along with usual bug fixes and performance improvements.
