Glympse is an app that lets you temporarily share your real-time location with family, friends, co-workers and more. It visually answers the question, “Where are you?” Glympse gives people and businesses power to share real-time locations safely, securely and temporarily, regardless of what type of mobile device they all have.
The app uses the GPS capability in your mobile phone to let you share your location in one of two ways:
Via a web-based map for a predetermined period with anyone you choose who does not have the Glympse app
Within the Glympse app for a predetermined period for those who, like you, have the Glympe app downloaded.
Sharing your location with someone is referred to as "sending a Glympse." A Glympse goes out as a link via text message. When recipients click on the Glympse link they can view your location on a map in real-time using any web-enabled device for as long as you choose to share with them.
Send a Glympse to let friends know you are on your way to meet them. Request a Glympse from a colleague who is running late to a meeting. Set up a Glympse Tag with your biking club. Create a Glympse Premium Tag for an upcoming local Santa parade. Those you share with can view your Glympse from any web-enabled device, no sign-up or app required.
Glympse is the pioneer of location-sharing. Since 2008, we have been providing solutions that offer communication between the right people at the right time when it matters most. Our solutions operate successfully with minimal data retention, and by default, we do not keep data, nor do we harvest or sell it.

Glympse Private Groups
Glympse Private Groups is a feature in Glympse that creates a private, invite-only Group. You give members control over who can be a member. All members of a Group can share their location and request the location of other members – all visible only to those in the Group. Private Groups are ideal for sharing with family, carpools, sporting teams, groups of friends and more.
Glympse Tags is a feature in Glympse that allows you to quickly view and share location with multiple friends on a single, shared Glympse map. Glympse Tags are public spaces (similar to Twitter/X hash tags) where anyone who knows the Tag name can view the tag map and add themselves to that map. When you view a tag map, what you are seeing is a map of people who have chosen to join the tag map (example: !SmithFamilyReunion or !SeattleCyclingClub).

Ratings and Reviews
Glympse enables me to share my real time location with my partner whenever she’s out without me. I suggested that she used it too but she refused. We had been dating for about nine months and had already said the 'I love you's.' We were at a friend's place, she was checking her emails as she had someone who wanted to purchase her guitar. I came up behind her in a loving embrace and glanced over her shoulder at her emails and I noticed an "OkCupid" message, then she quickly closed the app. Suspicious right?! This is something that had never happened before, not once. This propelled me to find the rationality behind acting that way. I saw an ad about a private investigator and decided to contact him on Spy Tech Guru @ gmail and told him about how suspicious my partner began acting. I also informed him that I wanted her phone cloned. I doubted his capabilities at first but after much hesitation, I went ahead to pay the fee because he had a money back guarantee clause just in case the service wasn’t satisfactory. Lo and behold, in few hours, I received access to her cellphone. I could see every single thing that was kept from my sight and reach. I discovered that she had been dating and meeting up with some guy from Okcupid! Using the services of dustin is the best decision I’ve made so far this year. I strongly advise that you write to him.
Glympse allows me and my wife to make most of our time. We both have to commute but only have one car. I cannot use public transport to work, so I use the car. I drop off my girl friend at the train stop every morning before I drive to work, however, picking her up in the evening is not that easy since I might be stuck in traffic or her bus/train is caught up by the rush hour. Being on each others' screen through Glympse makes it much easier to still time our pickup well. If she is running late, I go to the store adjacent to the train stop first. If I am running late, she walks towards the way she sees me taking on glympse.
Also, for longer driving without the other you can always make sure you know what's going on so that I can have dinner on the table by the time she is home for example. We seriously use Glympse every day. Just great!
Missing 1 feature but AWESOME otherwise
To the developers of this awesome app.
I use glympse to let my clients on my limo bus find my location throughout the night. The great part is they don't have to install any apps to use it. It is a web based link they can see me from. The part I wish this app had was a way for them to see their own location on that link, or a way for them to connect their dot to my dot. I often have to park in an area just within walking distance but it gets difficult to describe to them where they are in relation to my location. This would be an amazing feature to include in a future update.
