    I was thinking about giving my old Nexus to my daughter. I know her mother is sometimes a bit over-protective, so I would like to enable Google Latitude for her phone. The problem is, she's a minor, and can't sign up for a Google account, could I use my own account for the both phones? How does Latitude handle two phone on the same account?

    What do you mean a minor can't make a Google account? They can make Gmail accounts right (my sister made one herself, but I can't be sure, she suddenly just had one when I came back from my dorm, and she's 13)?

    Gmail = Google account anyway.

    Or you could make a dummy account and use it for her phone.

    I would just make a dummy account and allow her to use it, make it something that one day you can pass to her as all her own. Or you could just boot up both phones and see what happens when latitude gets two request from the same account. Just don't open any wormholes and we will all be fine.
