Trick or treating is one of the best activities to do on Halloween. It’s certainly the main aspect of Halloween that most children look forward to. However, trick or treating can also be slightly worrying as a child may get lost on their own. With Trick or Tracker, any parent can instantly get the location of their child while they are trick or treating in order to ensure that they’re not going anywhere that they shouldn’t be going or to see how far they are from your location.

Included in the app is also a location tracker for children to help them find their way while trick or treating and to prevent them from getting lost.
