How to set up Alert Areas

Location tracking is at the heart of dokiPal; it's always the first thing you see when you open the Doki App! But what if you wanted more control and wanted to get notified everytime a child enters or leaves an area? This is where Alert Area shines.

Alert area allows you to create geo-fences. This means that you can set times to get a notification whenever your child enters or leaves a certain location or area (e.g. school, a friend's home, park etc.)

If the dokiPal (or your child) is not within a pre-set area, you will receive a notification, making this an easy way to know when your child arrives at or leaves a certain area.

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to set up your very first Alert Area!
