Ubies is a tracking software that allows you to share your own location via SMS and request another participant’s location, also via SMS.
Ubies does not send location, contact or any other private information to any servers. The only exception to this rule is the reverse location lookup that is used to fetch your current address based on GPS coordinates to display it on a Google Maps section of the app.
If you request location information from a person who does not have Ubies installed, it will simply not work. But you can send your current location and address to another person via SMS in clear text, thus informing the recipient about your precise location.
Contact information is merely used within the application to ease composing of SMS messages.
