Google pulls the plug on its Trusted Contacts app



A few years ago, Google briefly built and maintained its Trusted Contacts app on iOS and Android. It was shown as a way to quickly and securely share your location with close friends or family members so that they can remotely monitor you, or even find your location in an emergency. Now Android Police points out that it is the latest Google project to hit the scrap heap.

The app is no longer available via Google Play or the App Store, and the website shows that support will completely end from 1

December. That puts it in partnership with Google Latitude and Google+ Location Sharing, two other projects that served similar purposes and are no longer with us.
