There are several ways to see a person’s location on an iPhone but most of them are unauthorized and using them might get the person in a lot of uninvited trouble. Well, don’t worry. In this article, we will tell you how you can see someone’s location on iPhone.
The only way to make any method safe to see someone’s location on an iPhone is by asking their permission beforehand, be they your own children, your lover, or even your parents suffering from Dementia. The app named “Find My” makes this authorized tracking a whole lot easier. It is safe to use as well as maintains the asked privacy of the person you’re trying to track.
Steps to see someone’s location on iPhone
Here are a few simple steps that can be helpful in seeing a person’s location on an iPhone.
- First, open the Find My app and then tap on the People tab.
- Now, share your phone’s location by tapping the Start Sharing Location option. Also, the person you’re trying to track needs to have their phone’s location sharing on too.
- Before you actually get to start seeing the other person’s location, you need to ask for their consent through the app. For this, you need to select the person from your contact list and then tap on Send. You also need to send them a kind of friend request by tapping on the “Ask to follow location” option.
Once the person accepts your friend request, you’ll start seeing their location. The thing to note here is that you cannot send a follow request to the person until and unless you’ve shared your own location with them.
Once you’re following the person, watching their location becomes a whole lot easier. You can also track the arrival and parting of the person from a specific area by geofencing the area.
