You can share your Chipolo with your family and friends virtually through the Chipolo app.
When you share your Chipolo and they accept the share in the Chipolo app on their phone, you will both be able to ring the Chipolo (not at the same time), see its last location on a map and check out who it was last connected to, to know who used it last.
The person you are sharing your Chipolo with first needs to download the Chipolo app on their phone and create their own Chipolo account.
When their account is set up, you open the Chipolo app on your phone and follow the instructions detailed below.
Check out the video below for a quick guide, or scroll down to see the detailed step-by-step instructions.
How To Share Your Chipolo - Step by step instructions:
1. Open the Chipolo app and in the List view, tap on the Chipolo you want to share.
2. On the next screen, tap on 'Share this Chipolo' in the settings menu at the bottom of the screen.
3. On the next screen type in the email address of the person that you want to share your Chipolo with.
When you share your Chipolo for the first time, you will be asked to allow the Chipolo app access to your Contacts.
If you allow, you will be able to choose the email address of the person you want to share your Chipolo with from your contacts list. If you deny, you will have to type in the email address of this person manually.
The other person will be sent a 'sharing request', asking them to accept your shared Chipolo.
When they accept your share, you will receive an email notification with the confirmation.
Note: Only one person can be actively connected to a Chipolo at one time (can make it ring), and that is usually the person standing closest to the Chipolo, due to the stronger Bluetooth signal on their phone. The other person sharing a Chipolo can see the last known location and who the Chipolo is connected to (or was last connected to) in the Chipolo app on their phone.
