You don’t need hundreds of friends on Zenly - just a couple to get started. There are a number of ways to add friends - though your friend will need to accept your request in order for you to start seeing them on your map.

Zenly is free and without ads. We’ve also spent nine years developing a very special algorithm that allows for continuous sharing without draining your battery.

My dream app that I have been looking for for years

This is my very first review for an app because usually I don’t bother, but I feel like i have to let more people to know about this app because it is simply fabulous.

The app is well known for its already funny tracking function like “find my friends”. Which u can read from other reviews.

However, what i like most is the footstep function which tracks every single place you have been too and reflect it on a map.
This is the function I had been looking on Appstore for years but no avail.
I have been running the app on background whenever I go, walking, driving, or even on a plane. And it did hell of a work mapping out my routes. Try it and u will love it, trust me.

Suggestion for the developer:
Please do not ever ever let this app die since all my travel data is on it.
Also,
Hope you can increase the location refresh rate for footprints function when the app is running in background. When I am travelling fast, the app tend to record dots instead of lines unless i am running the app on screen.

Possible security and stalking problems

Overall apps really amazing. Colour, messaging system, location is precise even tells how quick you’re travelling, what the weathers like, indicates you’re at home or work or school.

Thing is a major privacy and security threat. It shows where you live and where you work. Even on ghost mode, it implies to the person (on the frozen location” list) that he or she is being hidden away from, wow I mean what the...?! I don’t want my friends to know I put them in the frozen list, feels like this app is quite messed up. I just want some time alone lol and it has to tell everyone about it.

Blurred mode’s even worse, it shows I am blurring my locations... come on, just keep our status invisible to other users ... isn’t that what these modes are for ? Jesus Christ , am I the only thinking like that ? It’s like telling my friends “ yeah I am hiding away from you because I am a jerk”

Another thing is you Cannot delete the account unless you contact Zenly. So if I delete the account i will still be tracked down by “friends” even unwanted ones.

If they can fix these, this app would be 200% better

It feels really creepy and unsafe. Feels like it doesn’t treat privacy matters seriously.

Hey RoaringCook :)

Thanks a ton for your comment!!!
While reading it, we realized that our help center articles hint something wrong, and that we should do a design update to the ghost mode settings in the app to make things clearer!

When you are in Frozen mode, no one will ever know!
Your friends cannot see that you've placed them there, and we keep it between you and us.
We make it look like your phone has no cell coverage, or that it has been turned off.
We do need to make surprises sometimes to our own friends too :)

The Blurred mode is different though.
Your friends DO know that you've blurred them.
We conceived this mode for second degree friends, who you meet less often, but still want to keep an eye on. Makes it easy to know if you are the same city, or if one is traveling to a place you've been to.
We haven't found a better way to do that, without making it look like the app is bugging (if precision was shown as very bad for example).
So if you have any idea on how to make it better, we'll sincerely be very very interested!

If you ever reach out to us (mentioning this exchange) through love@zen.ly, I'd love to show you the mockups of the update we are thinking of doing to make sure it's clear enough. It's always very hard for us to keep a birds eye view and stand back on our job!

For the account deletion process, that's coming in less than 3 weeks :) Our help center is actually brand new (2 months old), and we are adding features one by one. Manual deletion is coming, and so is the ability to report wrong places and a few other things. In the meanwhile, just the use the dedicated section in "Contact Us". We respond to every request within 72 hours, deactivate your account immediately following that, and delete it 30 days later (so you don't loose everything if you change your mind).

Thanks for all the feedback, taking the time to write them, and the nice words at the beginning of your comment :)
