How to share your location with others

 

Fortunately, there are a couple of ways you can share your location with someone using only your MacBook. Here’s how:

Sharing your location with Find My Friends
The first and most obvious way to share your location is to use the Find My Friends app. This app requires that both parties have an Apple ID and be running at least iOS 8 on their iPhone or iPad (although it doesn’t hurt to be running the latest version of iOS, 9.2.1). Find My Friends is free and available in the App Store.

Once both parties have the app installed, they simply need to open it and sign in with their Apple ID. The next step is to either allow the app to access their location or manually enter their address. Once that’s done, they can see a list of all their friends that also use the app and invite them to share their location. Once both parties have accepted, they can see each other’s location in real-time on a map within the app.

Sharing your location in iMessage
The other way to share your location is through iMessage. This method doesn’t require that both parties have an iPhone, but it does require that they have an active data connection — either Wi-Fi or cellular data.

To share your location in iMessage, simply open up a conversation with someone and tap on the “i” button in the top-right corner of the screen. From there, tap on “Send My Current Location” at the bottom of the list. Your recipient will then see your current location on a map within the iMessage conversation thread.

How to keep your location private

 

If you’re concerned about your privacy, you may want to consider keeping your location private on your MacBook. There are a few different ways to do this, and which method you use will depend on how private you want to be.

One way to keep your location private is to disable location services altogether. This will prevent any apps from being able to access your location. To do this, go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy, and then select Location Services from the list of options on the left. On the right, uncheck the box next to ‘Enable Location Services’.

Another way to keep your location private is to only allow certain apps to access your location. To do this, go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Location Services. On the left, you’ll see a list of apps that have requested access to your location. For each app, you can decide whether or not to allow access by selecting ‘Never’, ‘Ask next time’, or ‘Always’.

You can also choose to share your approximate location instead of your exact location. To do this, go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Location Services. On the right, next to ‘Share My Location’, select ‘While Using App’ from the drop-down menu.

 

How to share your location with emergency services

 

If you have a Mac with macOS Catalina 10.15 or later, you can share your location with first responders when you make an emergency call. This feature is available in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands.

To share your location with emergency services:
1. Call 911 using your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or iPod touch, or using Siri on any of those devices.
2. After the call starts, your device automatically shares your location with emergency services if possible. If it can’t share your location, it shares the address of your current location at the time of the call.
