Why does it show “within a kilometer?”

To provide precise coordinates, your child’s phone must have enabled “Geolocation” service enabled and KidControl app has to have full access to location services.

Android > Settings > My Location

Turning ON Wi-Fi increases accuracy up to 10-40 meters and it is working indoors.

GPS provides exact coordinates with 10-50 meters accuracy only outdoors.

When GPS and Wi-Fi are not available, KidControl app determines phone’s location by LBS – GSM towers with 200-1000 m accuracy.
