How to Freeze Your Location on Find My without Anyone Knowing
There are a few different approaches that you may take if you want to pinpoint your location in Find My (which was originally known as Find My iPhone and Find My Friends)! When other individuals who can see your location try to do so, you have the ability to make it appear as though it is always in the same place. This wikiHow will tell you how to prevent the Find My iPhone app from accessing your current position.
Things You Should Know
- You can modify the share location by utilizing Find My on a different Apple device.
To prevent your location from being updated, activate the airplane mode and turn off Wi-Fi on your device.
- To prevent your iPhone from continuously updating your location, turn it off completely.
Switch Your Location to a New Device
Launch the "Find My" application on the new smartphone.
The icon for the Find My app looks like a green and blue radar. Using this method will switch the device that is sharing your location. This will enable you to lock the location on the new device while you continue to use your iPhone.
This technique needs the use of an additional Apple device in addition to your iPhone.
1- Open Control Center.
The aircraft mode can be activated using this approach. Those who try to access your location will only be shown your most recent known location and the time that it was most recently updated. Depending on the model of your iPhone, there are a few different ways to access the Control Center:
- iPhone X and subsequent models: You can scroll down the page by going to the top right corner of the screen
- iPhone SE, in addition to preceding models of the iPhone 8: Navigate to the bottom of the screen and use your finger to swipe up.
2- Tap the button labeled "Airplane Mode
It is the icon of a plane that may be seen in the upper-left corner of the Control Center. When it is turned on, it will have an orange hue.
3- Stop using Wi-Fi by turning it off.
Tap the symbol to turn off Wi-Fi if it is already on (the icon will be blue). It has to be gray, and there should be a line going through the Wi-Fi indicator. Your location has successfully been concealed!
It is important to keep in mind that your position on Find My will be updated whenever you turn off the airplane mode or turn on the Wi-Fi.
