How do I activate Location Awareness?

Canopy’s Location Awareness feature allows you to view the location of your child’s device on a detailed GPS map at any time, 24/7.

Please note that this feature is only available on devices that have GPS capabilities, such as most smartphones and tablets. Many computers do not have GPS capabilities.

Activating location awareness takes only two steps:

1. Make sure the Canopy Kids app is installed on the device you wish to track. For installation instructions, visit the Sign Up & Install section of our help site. 

2. In your child’s device’s settings, make sure Location Services are enabled. On iPhone & iPad, open the Settings app, go to Privacy and then Location Services, find Canopy, and set Allow Location Access to “Always”. On Android, access your Android Settings menu, select Location Services, turn on “Allow Location Services”. 

To check your child’s location, open the Canopy for Parents app or log in to your Canopy web dashboard. If Location Awareness is active, you’ll be able to view your child’s location on your dashboard’s home screen.
