How do I hide my location on my iPhone from others?
There are several ways to prevent others from seeing your location:
- Turn off Location Services: This will prevent all apps and features from using your location, including Find My Friends.
- Sign out of Find My Friends: If you don’t want anyone to know where you are, sign out of Find My Friends. This will also remove all your friends from the app.

Can people see my location if I have Location Services turned off on my iPhone?

How do I know if someone is tracking my iPhone location?
The best way to tell if someone is tracking your iPhone is to check the Find My app. If you see a device listed there, it means someone else has added it and is tracking its location. You can also check for signs of tracking by looking at your device’s battery life and data usage.
What happens if I delete someone from Find My Friends?
If you delete someone from Find My Friends, they will be removed from your list of friends and you will no longer be able to track their location.
However, they may still be able to see your location if they have another way of getting it (such as through your email or phone number).
Will disabling location services on my iPhone affect battery life?
