Why doesn't the IFPL give more specific
information about the person you have located,
such as their address or phone number?
The IFPL is intentionally vague as to the exact
location of the person you have found. This gives
these people a measure of privacy, requiring
contact between these people via email or instant
messaging before they meet in person.
The IFPL reports that someone is living 0 miles
away from me, or someone I know is just a mile
away is preported as living 15 miles from me,
what's happening here?
Unless you entered your Latitude/Longitude
directly, the IFPL estimates your position where
you live by the Zip/Postal/etc. code that you
entered. These codes are typically the center of
population for the location you entered. If
someone else enters the same code you did, they
will show up as 0 miles away (Their center of
population is the same as yours). In the case of
someone who enters a different location code,
even though they may be only a mile or two away,
the center of population for their code may be
miles away from the center of your population.
Unless preceise coordinates are entered for your
account (Latitiude/Longitude) data for your home,
the IFPL cannot be 100% accurate, but it will get
a good estimate of how far someone lives from you.

Why is there no guest account for the IFPL?
The IFPL is built around the concept of people
finding each other. To be located you need to
have your information listed in the system. A
guest account would let people see who's near
them, but not enter their information in the
system. The decision was made that in order to
see who's near you, you have to allow them to see
that you are near them. Keep in mind
