Steps To Disable Find My Friends

Although it is a bummer that your friend will get a notification, here is how to disable Find My Friends.

  1. Open your Settings on your mobile device
  2. Select Privacy
  3. Select Location Services
  4. Tap the Location Services slider so it is White / OFF

When you turn off "Share My Location" in iOS's Find My Friends, your friends, family, coworkers, and anyone temporarily following you through Messages won't be able to see you, because location sharing settings for both Find My Friends and Messages are managed with iCloud.

 Now, you have successfully stopped sharing your location services! Have more Find My Friends questions? Comment below and let us know, or try the Apple Support Center.
