You may not be able to update the member of your Life360 circle or your own location if there is a problem with the device.
This is also possible if you or they deliberately stop updating their location for one reason or another.
In this article, we will talk about the Life360 not updating location problem in greater detail and help you come to a beneficial resolution.

When Life360 is updated to the latest version, it works perfectly and there is little chance that it will fail to detect the current location.
Failing to update the app for a while may also cause it to slow down, resulting in problems with it detecting the location of the device and refreshing the location when it changes.
It is therefore important that every Life360 member ensures that the app is updated to the latest version to get the best performance. You can update the app in the iOS App Store or the Android Google Play Store.
It is also important to note that outdated devices may cause the app to malfunction as newer versions of the app may not be compatible with the older devices.
There may also be glitches with the device’s settings that may be affecting the function of the Life360 app.
In this case, the best thing you can restart the device to remove some of these system glitches. Once the device restarts, you can then open the Life360 app to see if the location is updated.
If a restart doesn’t work, you can try to uninstall and reinstall the app.
If everything you have tried still doesn’t work, you can contact Life360 to get further assistance.
It is not uncommon for the Life360 app to sometimes fail to function as it should and the most common problem is usually a location that is not updating as required.
The solutions above when applied to the device that is not updating its location will greatly help fix the problem and get Life360 working normally again.
Usually, you will find that the problem is caused by improperly configured settings which can be easily resolved, allowing you to continue using Life360.
