Family Map server is not responding

There are errors when connecting to Family Map servers now since 10/5. It has been on and off before 10/5.

"An error occurred while signing in. Please try again." is the message provided. Connecting to the server took around 2-3 mins.

Re: Family Map server is not responding

 The app is being updated or replaced.  Unfortunately it’s a botched update.  I let the community manager know, but I doubt there will be an answer till next week.

Re: Family Map server is not responding

Family Map is a paid service. What they should have done is to deploy the upgrade to a test server and test/confirm the upgrade works and ready. Then deploy the upgrade to real application server to serve. Isn't it rude to tell customer "sorry, it is not working" now when they ask? I have been kept trying. Wouldn't it be nice if you inform customers about the issues?

Re: Family Map server is not responding

Thank you! It needs a place to talk about the issue. Wouldn't it be correct if the error message is "Sorry , we are currently upgrading the application. We have failed to fix problems, please give us a few days..." :]

Re: Family Map server is not responding

There are several FREE apps which locate phones in the App Store.  

We are an android family and use “Google trusted contacts”.  It doesn’t require sharing your google account credentials.  

“Family locator” is a one time purchase and works on any device.

“Family locator & safety” is free

iCloud locates iphones

Find devices locates androids

 

   The ONLY reason to use ATT $10 per month subscription is if you have basic phones.   All of the above apps require a smartphone

I upgraded a newer app on my phone. Now when I try to log in, it says ’Please enter a valid 10 digit phone number⋯‘
