Google Trusted Contacts App Finally Lands on iOS
There is a new app available for iOS, which is called Google Trusted Contacts.

Google Trusted Contacts is an app where you can share your location information with people you choose to be your trusted contacts. If you are going out on a date or going out late to a bar, you can share this information with those people just in case something might happen to you.
Google Trusted Contacts will allow people to know you are safe, which is definitely good if you are out on a date with someone you do not know.

You will also be able to share your location information with friends and family in different ways.
You can choose it be emergency-only or in everyday situations. This is handy for many people because you can just choose to have a list of people who will be your Trusted Contact for an emergency or you can choose to share your location no matter what the situation is.
