How can I see my child’s location on iPhone?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To see your child’s location on iPhone, you can set up Family Sharing. If you haven’t done this yet, don’t worry, I’ll guide you through the process step by step.

First, open the Find My app on your iPhone. This app comes pre-installed on most iPhones, but if you don’t have it, you can download it from the App Store.

Once you have the Find My app open, tap on the “People” tab at the bottom of the screen. This tab allows you to see the location of your family members who have granted you permission to track their location.

Next, select your child’s name from the list of family members. If you don’t see their name, it’s possible that they haven’t set up their location sharing yet. In that case, you can ask them to follow these steps later.

After selecting your child’s name, tap on it again to see the menu options. From the menu, choose “Share My Location.” This will enable your child to share their location with you.

Once your child has enabled location sharing, their iPhone will periodically update its location and you will be able to see it in the Find My app. You can check their location at any time by opening the app and selecting their name from the “People” tab.

It’s important to note that both you and your child need to have iCloud accounts and be part of the same Family Sharing group for this feature to work. If you haven’t set up Family Sharing yet, you can do so by going to the Settings app on your iPhone, tapping on your Apple ID at the top of the screen, and selecting “Set Up Family Sharing.”

Setting up Family Sharing allows you to not only track your child’s location but also share app purchases, subscriptions, and more. It’s a great way to stay connected and manage your family’s digital life.

I hope these instructions help you see your child’s location on iPhone. If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, feel free to ask.
