    Default How to use Find My Friend

    I got a shock last nite when my boyfriend suddenly appeared in front of me while i was having drinks with some colleagues. I am wondering how did he know my whereabout. A friend told me since both of us are using IPhone, he can trace me by using Find My Friend aps.... Can anyone teach me how to use it so that I can use it to find him too? Thanks...

    I honestly haven't used it in awhile but to the best of my knowledge you launch the app- click on him and request location- Beforehand you have to both accept each other to allow this but I am assuming you did since he found you...

    You have to have agreed to it beforehand.

    Another option would be Find My iPhone if both phones were set up using the same (his) iCloud ID. Or if the iCloud IDs were different, if he knew your password.

    Other apps have tracking too, but I think you would have to have agreed to let your location be known such as Foursquare, Facebook, etc.

    lol I fail to see how this is an issue created by Apple? The tool is there what people use it for is what can cause problems or good outcomes. My wife and I use both Find my iPhone and Find my friends. I showed her how to use both of them and she knows what it's there for. If any of the two phones are lost or stolen it's one way to track where they end up. I can also use it to send her messages stalker style LOL

    it was supposed to be a joke since most people do not want to take personal accountability these days

    kind of like the guy/girl who get busted in Cheaters and blame them for ruining their relationship
