It makes it easier to share your live location with others in your daily interactions on WhatsApp. This helps in keeping appointments with friends, arranging plans, and informing loved ones about one’s safety.
Open a chat with a person or a group that you intend to share your live location. Click on the attachment button, choose “Location” and there you will see an option “share live location”. Select how long you will be sharing it for, whether it is 15 minutes, one hour, or eight hours, then press send.
Worried about privacy? No need. With WhatsApp, your security is guaranteed as you choose who to share your live location with and for how long. Again, you may also turn off your live location from being shared for as long as possible.
It is a life changer, no more tiring follow-ups but just an easy fast-track reporting of real-time updates. Therefore, the next time you’re traveling or planning an event, please remember to share your live location on WhatsApp for easy convenience.
Is privacy safe with WhatsApp’s live location feature?
WhatsApp, tell that this feature is truly protected and no one can see our location in real-time or in the current time, except the people or groups with whom we share our location. They talk about WhatsApp security on their website if you want to learn more about this topic.
In any case, we can always remove the permission to block WhatsApp from accessing your location whenever you want. In this case, the app no longer has the possibility of finding us in any way, but of course in this case we lose the functions that we mentioned above. To be able to delete the location in this app, all we have to do is go to Settings of our phone> Apps > WhatsApp > Permissions > and tap the app ( you want to revoke permission) > then choose don’t allow.
On the other hand, we must take into account that the location indoors can always be a little less accurate than usual since this is a function that requires the GPS of our device and the error rate is always a little higher indoors. Nevertheless, in most cases, the function is completely valid and today it is much easier to pass our location using a mobile device Apps like WhatsApp make it even a little more accessible to everyone with these options.
