If you’re concerned about the privacy of your location data, you can disable your mobile device’s Airplane mode and turn off precise location in the Messages app. In addition, you can use a special application such as Life360 to keep your location private. You can hide your current location and visit activities using this application.
Disable Airplane mode
You can disable location sharing without your kids’ or spouse’s knowledge by disabling Airplane mode on your iOS device. To enable this mode, go to Settings and tap the “Airplane” icon. Once the mode is enabled, your iOS device will not share your location with anyone. Instead, you can share your approximate location instead of sharing your exact location with others.
If you don’t want your contacts to know where you’re going, you can stop sharing your location with them by using iMoveGo. The app works by changing your GPS location so that you can’t be tracked by your contacts. The app also lets you set a duration for when you want to share your location.
If you have an iPhone and are concerned about how your location is being shared, you can use the free software Mobitrix MagicGo to disable location sharing on your iPhone. This application is easy to use and has an intuitive user interface. With it, you can easily change your iPhone’s location to anywhere in the world and stop GPS tracking from following you. All you need to use the program is a computer and an iPhone connection.
Turning off Precise Location in Messages app
If you want to turn off your location on iPhone, you can do it from the Settings app. There you can turn off Precise Location for specific apps. While some apps may not need to know your exact location, others might. For example, news apps might only need to know the city you’re in to serve you relevant articles.
Turning off Precise Location in Find My

Once you’ve turned off location sharing for contacts, the app will send them an iMessage informing them that you don’t want to share your location with them.
Disabling it in Find My
Disabling location sharing in Find My Friends may not be a perfect solution for your privacy concerns. While location sharing is great for keeping track of your friends and family, it could compromise your privacy.
