If you are concerned about your kid’s or friend’s security, you can track his/her location secretly using your iPhone. It’s quite simple to get started with it. Let’s cross over to check out!
How to Secretly Track Your Friend’s Location Using iPhone or iPad
Find My Friends is compatible with iOS 8 or later. On iOS 9, this is a stock app. You will need to install the app if your friend’s iPhone is running iOS 8.
Step #1. Launch Find My Friends on your friend’s iPhone.
Step #2. Next up, you have to tap on your friend’s contact picture at the bottom.
Step #3. Turn on Share My Location. Right under Share My Location From, you have to make sure that location is shared from this device.
Step #4. On your iPhone, swipe up from the bottom to bring up Control Center. Enable AirDrop and select Everyone. (Even Contacts Only will do. But it’s better to select Everyone.)
Step #5. On your friend’s device, tap on Add (in Find My Friends) from the top right corner. Tap on your contact and select “Share Indefinitely“.
Step #6. On your device, tap on your friend’s contact in the app. You will see his/her current location.
Besides, there will be an option to notify you when your friend leaves/arrives at that place.
That’s all! Now, start tracking your friend secretly until he/she discovers your trick.
