How does Ping work?
- Ping uses the motion sensors in your smartphone to know if you or your loved ones have been up and about (moving their phone, walking or arriving/leaving a place).
- Optionally, you can share places that you frequent like home or work and Ping will automatically show loved ones when you arrive.
- Once an account is created, Ping works in the background without anyone needing to open the app.
- Ping can also be used in situations when you’re feeling a little nervous or adventurous. Like walking to your car late at night or a sunrise walk. Simply set the safety timer and Ping will check back with you to make sure everything is ok. See "Watch my Back" for more details.
