Life360’s Crash Detection technology has analyzed thousands of collisions, enabling us to create an algorithm that detects movement consistent with car crashes. At times, we might detect unusual movement that resembles car crash movement when engaging in activities such as skydiving, riding on a roller coaster, and on occasion, it can happen if you drop your phone.
In an effort to err on the side of caution, we’ll always choose to report events, even if they show borderline signs of being an actual crash.
In order to prevent false alerts for your Circle and emergency contacts, you may be prompted to tell us if a false alarm has happened immediately after an event has been detected. Since our algorithm is always learning, the best way to help improve is by letting us know what happened. Be sure to complete the survey that we send you and have your Drive Detection turned ON in your Settings.
Note: Crash Detection is only available in the U.S., Canada, and the UK.
