How can I share my location with you?
There are many options for location sharing
If you’re ready to allow your friends and family to track you, you have several options. You can do temporary location sharing. You can use it during cab booking. Cab services like Uber provide links to share your location with your contacts, including where you are, your driver’s information and your estimated arrival time.

Apart from this, you can also do location sharing on WhatsApp. WhatsApp allows you to share your live location—encrypted end-to-end—for between 15 minutes and eight hours. For this, all you have to do is select your location by tapping on the ‘+’ button.
Share Location on Apple Find My
Apple’s Find My feature also allows you to share location for an hour, a day, or indefinitely, while Google Maps allows you to see the current location with your contacts in 15 minutes and with the Always option.
