Glympse is a quick and easy way to share your location on your own terms. Whether on a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, any Glympse you send can be viewed on a map with no download required.
Glympse lets you share your location with only the specific people you choose and only for as long as you decide. Compared to apps that want to keep tabs on you at all times, it’s a breath of fresh air.
The app is super simple: Send a Glympse request to anyone you wish using email, text, Hangouts, iMessage, Facebook, Twitter and more. Once connected, you are able to see each other’s location for the limited time period that you choose.
Made plans to hang with a friend but they’re running late? Request a Glympse to know exactly how long they’ll take before arriving. Trying to locate your friends at a packed music festival? Use Glympse to instantly share locations for an easy way to meet up!
