Balefire – Anonymous Friends and Family Locator

Track the location of friends and family without giving up any personal information! Get all the features of device tracking without giving away your privacy.

NO Registration | NO Personal Data | NO Subscriptions

Balefire is a location sharing application that is different because we focus on security and privacy. With Balefire you can share your real-time and historical location anywhere in the world with friends and family. However, unlike other such applications, Balefire does NOT collect any personal information. Your location is your business and that of those whom you wish to share it. There is nothing within this service that can ever associate any location with any specific person. You are free to securely share your location without the burden of account registration, annoying emails, text messages, or other forms of unwanted communication. Balefire is fully featured without any of the privacy invasive data collection others require.

Loads of great FREE features such as:

– Locate and be located by an UNLIMITED number of people (who you allow).
– No registration and no collection of personal data.
– Multi-level security including strong encryption, personal security code, and two-way trust.

Intelligently balances battery life by altering movement update frequency based on whether the person you are following is walking or in high-speed transportation like a car. Updates not based on time but rather movement distance from as little as 300ft/100m if walking to .25mi/400m if driving.

Security and privacy are our priority and Balefire goes to great lengths to secure both. The app includes a full help section that details the security provided as well as our privacy statement and commitment. Help section also includes a detailed FAQ and Getting Started videos.

You’ll have a blast keeping track of friends and family especially knowing you given up zero personal details!

* Please note that turning on tracking services for your device will make use of GPS and other hardware. By nature this hardware, while exceedingly cool, will use more battery (just like navigation apps). Tools are offered in the app to help balance battery usage, but please understand that greater battery consumption comes with GPS usage. Locating others, however, does NOT use your GPS. Balefire makes it very easy to turn-on/off your tracking (and therefore your GPS) on the main map screen.
