How to Name Locations in Apple’s Find My Friends App

Do you enjoy stalking your friends and family via Apple's Find My Friends app? If you're a regular user of the "Notify Me" feature, which allows you to receive push alerts when a friend arrives or leaves a location of your choosing, you now have more flexibility to decide on the geographic area you wish to be notified about. In other words, you can now set custom-sized geofences for your most stalkable friends. The main and only highlighted feature is a new UI for location-based notifications, which were first introduced to the app in September of At that time, we pointed out how the Notify Me feature might make a mockery of the word "privacy," as friends can not only see where you are at any given time, but can set notifications—without your knowledge—so they're alerted whenever you enter or exit a certain location.

Now, Apple allows you to take that a step further by customizing the geofence around the location you're trying to monitor. When you do so, a dotted line shows how far you've expanded the bubble. Another modification to the UI changes the way you search for locations—instead of simply relying on where your stalkee is right now , you can search for other places such as the airport, or another friend's house so you receive notifications for that location instead.

So go have fun setting up notifications for all your friends—before they all catch on and start blocking you, that is. You must login or create an account to comment.

How to Use Siri to Find Your Friends

Chat with a Tech Pro or call us at Enable Location Services to easily locate friends and family members. Share your location with others, let them share back, and find missing devices. If you want friends and family to know where you are, turn on Share My location on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. If they share their location back, you can see where they are too.

To share one's location or receive the location of another user, both parties must have the Find My Friends application [4] installed on their devices. If the device is using iOS 9 software or a newer version, the application is automatically installed on Apple devices [4]. If the device uses an iOS 8 or earlier version of software, the application can be installed for free in the App Store [4].

Using Siri to find friends is easy once you have the right apps on your iPhone 4S. The app requires both the iOS 5 upgrade and an iCloud account to work, but both are free, at least. The first step is to download the app from the iTunes App Store. You now see your friend represented by a colored orb on your Find My Friends map.

How to use Find My Friends in iOS

Using a range of technology including 4G radio antennas and GPS, your iPhone nearly always knows where you are. You can find out which restaurant or pub your friends have decided on, say, or see how far from home your partner is so you know when to start cooking. Where privacy is concerned, you can control who sees your location and when. When it asks whether it can use your location, tap OK. It uses map data from TomTom and others. 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. 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. When you invite a person to see your location, they receive an email from your default email address.
