When setting up a timer, you must choose a valid cell phone number (including area code) from your phone contacts list. The Guardian’s phone must be capable of receiving SMS text messages. If you specify an invalid contact phone number, the Guardian app will not warn you of the error. A "land-line" may not be used.
How will I know that a Guardian is actively monitoring my Safety Timer session?
You will not receive a notification that your guardian is actively monitoring the Safety Timer session. However, if a guardian is actively monitoring, you will see "At least 1 Guarding watching this session" in the upper right corner of the Safety Timer map.
