As the lead parent you will have the ability to add into your account other responsible adults, such as Mum, Dad, Grandparents, or any other legal guardian. They will be invited to download the app and create a unique log in to add to your account. When they have guardianship of your child (for example the Grandparents might have him or her for the weekend) you assign them as the anchor point. This will make their phone the point of reference for all your agreed parameters, such as how far they are allowed to play from the Guardian and who the SOS alert should go to if the need arises.Can my child call me for help?
