Maxis Friend Finder

A friendly face is just around the corner

Sometimes, all we want is a friendly face. With Maxis Friend/Family Finder, you can use your mobile phone to see who's in the area. With geo-location using our cell-towers, we can help you find your friends nearby, even if they don't have GPS enabled phones. Of course, this service is 100% permission based, making it ideal for keeping track of your loved ones without violating their privacy.

How it works

The Android App

If you have an Android phone, get the full experience with our Maxis Friend Finder app. With a simple graphical interface, the app allows you to see what your friends are doing in the area, and chat with them.


Even if you don't own a smartphone, you can still keep track of your friends via SMS for only RM0.30 per request. Click here for further instructions.
