How to Share Your WhatsApp Live Location on iOS

Date:

Are you wondering how to share your WhatsApp Live Location on iOS? You have tried doing it only to realize you do not know where to start. If that is what you want to learn how to do, then you are at the right place.

Sharing your WhatsApp Live Location is like letting or making people aware of your current location; it is your real-time location, and everyone you have shared it with will always see it until the duration you selected expires.

This is one of the end-to-end encrypted features (meaning that people you did not share it with will never have access to it) on WhatsApp, which every user can access.

You can also manage how long you want it visible. It will stop when the period you selected has expired. When this period expires, those you shared it with can only see a static thumbnail image, which they can click on to view your last updated location.
