Glympse Private Groups is a new feature that creates a private, invite-only Group. Members of a Group can share their location to and request the location of other members and the activity is only visible within the Group.
Glympse Private Groups are perfect for sharing with family, carpool, teams, or a group of friends. The Group is private and not accessible by others unless they have received an invite from an existing member and verified their Glympse account. Unlike the Glympse Public Tags feature (which is a public group that anyone can join) Private Groups give members control over who can be a member of the group and view other members locations, share their location or request the location of other group members.
On the other hand, as members are 'verified' through the validation of their cellular phone numbers, Private Groups can only be viewed on verified cellular devices and, as a privacy measure, cannot be seen in a web browser as is possible with regular Glympses or Public Tags.
