Tech Tip – Sharing Your Location In WhatsApp

13th September 2023

If you’d like an easy way to let others know where you are, e.g. a group of friends on a night out, or as a safety precaution, you can choose to share your location on WhatsApp. Here’s how:

– Go to ‘Settings’ on your phone.

– Tap ‘Apps’ (or scroll down on iPhone).

– Select ‘WhatsApp,’ ‘Permissions,’ and ‘Location.’

– Select ‘Allow only while using the app’ (or ‘Ask every time’).

– To turn location sharing off again, follow the same route to permissions and select ‘Don’t allow.’
