The Find My Friends app is a great way to share your location with people who are important to you. Friends and family members who share their locations with you appear on a map, so you can quickly see where they are. You can set notifications for friends and family members to alert you when they leave from or arrive at various locations.

Note: For more information about Find My Friends, please refer to the Help in the app.
