Share Your Location With a Friend

This tip is about a feature that is suprisingly not well known. You can share your current location with a friend or family member with ease.

1) Open Messages app and tap on a thread with a person you would like to share your location with. Tap 'Details' in the upper right corner.


2) On the details page you will see a section titled 'Location.' There you will find two options.

  • Send My Current Location
  • Share My Location


The first option will send you current location to the person. The second option will give you a menu with the following options:

  • Share for One Hour
  • Share until End of Day
  • Share Indefinitely


Choose your option and that is it.
