With Find My Friends, users can easily find each other throughout a campus, building or conference venue, increasing user satisfaction and efficiency.
Find My Friends utilizes existing Wi-Fi infrastructure for obtaining users locations. Only users that have actively accepted to join a group will be tracked and a users can leave a group at any time. All user positions are obtained in a secure way from Cisco CMX. For further improving privacy, users can select their own nickname to be shown, and the location will only be visible inside the building/venues. Once the users leaves the Wi-Fi network, tracking stops and others will see “No position available”. Find My Friends is a real time service and no user locations are stored by MazeMap or by the Find My Friends service.
