Location services

ESET Parental Control for Android Child Locator requires the Location services (GPS, Wi-Fi, cellular services) on the child's device to be turned on.

Locator

Using ESET Parental Control for Android on your device, select the child you want to locate. The child's device location can be found using the Locator option. You can find the Locator option on the Home page of the ESET Parental Control for Android application.

Locate child using ESET HOME portal

Log into your ESET HOME account and select Parental Control. Select the child you want to locate. The child's device location will be displayed in the Child locator section of the child's page. You can filter the results to display all of the child's device locations or just a specific device location.

Locate child using SMS

You can use the Parental messages feature in ESET Parental Control for Android to send an SMS command from your device to request the GPS location of your child's device, even if the child's device does not have internet connection. This option must be configured on your child's device before you can use it to locate the device. SMS commands can only be sent from the phone numbers you add to the Parent's phone numbers section in ESET Parental Control for Android on your child's device. To request the child device location, send an SMS message starting with a question mark (?) in the text to the child device. You will receive an SMS message with a URL link to the child device location.
