Grab your smartphone and share LIVE locations between friends. The possibilities to use Wave are as endless as the plans you make: get-togethers with friends, festivals, big sport events, date nights, trips, outdoor sports, private business meetings, family safety...basically whenever you want to meet up with someone or you need to know where someone is. 100 % privately. Always.

01 Wave in a nutshell
To sum up Wave

Wave was born in Madrid, Spain in 2014 and it was commercially launched in 2015 after the Founders CEO Manuel De La Esperanza and COO Luis Gelado noticed in a daily situation struggling while waiting for a colleague that there was no real solution in the geolocation app market – a huge orphan market, a huge opportunity.

Wave has now a talented team of more than 20 employees, daily traffic in more than 190 countries and millions of happy users around the world (and counting!).

02 Why people love Wave
Our core values

What makes Wave different? Wave has always relied on its core values: privacy, real time, limited duration, top notch tech and impressive UX/design. There are some competitors and big players in the market who share the same vision with us but none of them share the same approach or the same core values.
