Zenly is a live map of your friends and family. It’s the most fun way to meet up — or just see what’s up! — so even when you’re apart, you can feel together. Zenly is an app from Snap Inc. that millions of people around the world use. Here’s what it can do:

*See exactly where your friends are and what they’re up to
*Know which friends are awake and ready to hang out
*Get to your friends without asking for the address
*Know when your friends are on the move and how fast they’re moving
*Know when they’re at home, at school, at work and when they’re on their way to any of those places

*Know when your friends are together with fire on the map and create a group chat in a tap
*When you do meet up, Bump phones with friends to let others know you’re hanging out

*Blast your friends with your favorite emojis (hint: sound on)
*Know when your friends run out of battery when you can’t reach them
*See how much of the map you’ve explored with Footprints and compete with friends
*Get notified when your friends travel to different countries

*Blur or freeze yourself to get off the grid for as long as you need
*Zenly is for best friends only. We have a number of ways you can add friends on Zenly, but remember that your friend will need to accept your request before you can see them on your map!

Zenly is free to use and without ads (yay!). We’ve also spent 10 years developing a very special algorithm that allows for continuous sharing without draining your battery (also yay!).

Got a question? Fancy a chat? Need an ice cream recommendation? Send us a message on @zenlyapp on social and on email.

Zenly loves you.

What’s New

Version 4.44.0

My agent called me this week with some big news. She said that I’m going to be a huge star when “Zenly loves you, the movie” finally drops in the box office! So I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all the support you’ve given me. You’ve been my rock through hard times, my inspiration during a creative drought. It’s been a journey.

Speaking of journeys, I added a little something new to your map this week. Now, when your friends are on the move, you’ll see a beautiful rainbow train of color around their pin. I hope it brightens your day! Plus, you can now get turn-by-turn directions to your friends, right inside Zenly. Just hit the arrow to the right of the chat bar, decide if you fancy walking or driving, then tap the pink button to get you there.

In other news, I added a little something new to your widgets this week. Now you can see at a glance if you’ve missed some messages from your friends on Zenly (like asking you “u up?” or spamming you with 300 eggplant emojis).

Philpott me ,

Amazing app

I love this app . The best gps app ever! It stays in even if background is down or when battery dies once person turns phone back on it's on . As a mother this is a gift!

Update : this used to be the best tracking app until lately . With each update it started to mess up . It is now no longer tracking and the person is in sane place fir days . I had both phones with me just to see and still it could not locate . It said reasoning was off , no service , hiding from me etc but all were impossible as I has the phone . I will delete permanent soon of can't get too work . Sad as I campaign this app at work but lately it's being disappointing

Zenly deleted my account for no reason!

I’ve never written reviews before but this is just beyond sad and frustrating. So one day my account just disappeared. Yes like, boom, gone. I opened the app and it got logged out automatically, I tried logging in with my number but it created a new account. I tried contacting support and they said it’s permanently deleted and cannot be recovered. So I lost everything, footprints, friends. I mean the information has got to be somewhere right? On the website it even says it’ll be kept for 30 days. Not to say I didn’t even try deleting my account Zenly just did it. I’ll never be able to get those footprints back now, which is also the main reason I used Zenly. It’ll be impossible to get the same footprints either. The feeling is like having your memory card formatted by someone else. So unless they somehow miraculously found my old account back I don’t want to use this anymore. What if they deleted my account again? I don’t wanna be heartbroken twice. No I’m not giving them another chance. Am I the only one that experienced this? Wow unbelievable can I be more lucky than that. Wish I was lucky in other ways. A simple wish would just be to get my account back🙄🙄

Our Care team will look into your request as soon as possible 🙌 Speak soon 🤝 Cassie

Not having a “log out” option. ,

How the app can improve.

Overall, the app itself is pretty great as of being a location - based app. It’s great that you can easily interact with friends and see where they constantly are. What I see as a problem is not having a “log out” option. As I was changing my phone to my new one, I have realized that Zenly doesn’t have an “Log out” option. In that case, I am pretty disappointed. If you have deleted the app, your friends would see the last location where were last and if you were to download it again, it would pop your account again! What if I have selled my phone to a stranger and they’ve found my account? Theyre going to hijack it. How am I going to log on back there on my new phone. Yeah, you’ll have to create a new account and add your friends all over again. Please reconsider this problem. Thank you.

Developer Response ,

Hey, thanks for the feedback. 🙏 What I'd recommend in this case is to delete Zenly from your device before selling it. If the new owner downloads Zenly they'll need access to your phone number to receive the verification code before accessing your account. If you got a new number just let us know and we'll get your account moved over to your number. See, no sweat. 😅 Always here if needed 👉 💌 Bryan 🤗
