If you use “Family Sharing” on your iPhone and iPad, and you have all the members in your family group, sharing your location is much easier. This feature can be used by parents, for example, to control their children, if necessary for security reasons.

So find out how to share your location with your family on iPhone and iPad.

Let's check out how to use "Family Sharing" on iPhone so you can always know where your family members are, and they know where you are too.

How to share your location with family

Before you start, you'll need to add people to your family group if you haven't already. You can learn more about adding members in this article. Once the task is finished, just follow the steps below.

1. Go to "Settings" on your iPhone or iPad.

2. Click on your name, located at the top of the menu.

3. Then click on "Share with the Family" located immediately above the list of all your connected devices.

Here, you'll find all the family members you've added to the group. If you don't see anyone here, be sure to add members first before continuing.

4. Now click on "Share location".

5. This will take you to the "Find" menu. First, make sure the option is enabled. Then click on any of your family members in your group.

6. Now, just click on "Share location" and you're done.

Sometimes you may not want a family member to access your location. In that case, you can select the specific member from the same menu and choose "Stop sharing location".

Don't be bothered to tell your family where you are anymore

From now on, whenever you are stuck in traffic while driving and you are late, your family members can easily check your location.

Also don't forget that you don't need to share your location with all members of your family group if you don't want it.
