With the app installed, open mLite on the Parent phone, purchase a subscription, and follow the instructions to register an account.
Next, open mLite on the Child phone and tap “Switch to Child”. Then, follow the installation instructions for Child devices.

Why aren’t I seeing updates in my parent account?

When you install mLite on the Child phone, the app requests various permissions. If you didn’t grant permissions properly, mLite can’t capture information on the device. Here’s how to make sure permissions are granted:
  • If your Child phone is an Android, open mLite on the Child phone > tap Settings > Permissions > Make sure that all permissions are granted > Restart Child phone.
  • If your Child phone is an iPhone, open phone Settings on Child iPhone > find mLite > Make sure that all permissions are granted > Restart Child phone.
Still having trouble? Re-install mLite on both devices and connect them again by following the instructions. If that still doesn’t work, our support team can help. Get in touch at [email protected]

Why is my child’s location not updating?

faq close icon
mLite uses an advanced algorithm to track the location of the Child phone by first checking for a GPS signal. If the signal is weak, mLite uses the CellID locating method. The CellID method approximates the target's location by using information from nearby cell towers. If both methods fail, the signal will not get updated.

To make sure you’re receiving location updates, follow these steps:
  • If your Child phone is an Android, open Child phone Settings > Connections > Location > Make sure that Locations are enabled and set to High Accuracy.
  • If your Child phone is an iPhone, open Child phone Settings > Privacy > Locations Services > Make sure that Locations are enabled.
