It’s easy to change your Find My Friends location and other settings. Here’s how…
1 Name your location
At the bottom of the screen, tap the row that says ‘Me’ and lists your current location to reveal everything the app knows about you: where you’re located, whether you’re sharing that info, and who you’re sharing it with. At the top of the screen you’ll see a live map view that shows your position, with the address below it. You can make the address more meaningful to you and your friends by naming it: tap Choose Label, then choose a preset on the next page – Home, Work, School, Gym or None – or tap Add Custom Label to create one of your own.
2 Share your location
Use this switch to quickly turn location sharing on or off. Just below this is another option: Share My Location From. This is useful if you have more than one iOS device and want to associate them with different places – for example, a Mac at work, or an iPad at home. You can see which device’s location is currently being shared as yours, as it’ll have a check mark to its right. To change device, simply tap the one you want to use instead.
When you invite a person to see your location, they receive an email from your default email address. To use another address tap Send As to reveal a list of alternatives you can use: any that are already associated with your Apple ID, including any aliases that you’ve set up in the Mail web app at iCloud.com.
4 Close friends
You can be alerted when a person arrives or leaves a place. Under Show Your Geofence Alerts From, choose whether to get alerts about anyone who shares their location with you, or just friends you’re following.
