About Glympse

Glympse is the easiest way to safely share your location with someone in real time. No sign-up needed and no new social network to manage. Recipients receive a link allowing them to view your ETA and location in real-time for the length of time you choose.

When the timer on your Glympse expires, your location is no longer visible. Best of all, recipients do not need any special software to view a Glympse. Send a Glympse via SMS, email, Facebook or Twitter and recipients can view it using any web-enabled device.

Features:
• Easy: no sign-up required or friend lists to manage
• Safe: your Glympse automatically expires
• Live: share location in real-time
• Open: share with anyone – no app required to view
• Passive: runs in the background
• Global: works anywhere you have GPS and a data connection

Use Glympse to:
• coordinate a night out with friends
• let your spouse know when you’ll be home from work
