Find the location of your friends on iCloud.com
After you ask friends to share their locations and they accept, you can see their locations on a map in Find My Friends on iCloud.com.
On the map, your friends are represented by orange dots with their initials or profile pictures. Your location appears as a blue dot . The shadows around the dots indicate the location’s accuracy (the smaller the shadow the better).
See nearby friends
In Find My Friends on iCloud.com, tap Nearby Friends to see friends that are currently near your location. The distance between you and your friends is also displayed (if your device can be located).
Note: Make sure your iPad is connected to Wi-Fi or a cellular network. When your device isn’t connected to Wi-Fi or a cellular network, you won’t see your current location (blue dot) on the map or the distance between you and your friends in the Friends list.
See a friend’s location
In Find My Friends on iCloud.com, tap a friend, then do any of the following:
Move the map: Swipe.
Zoom in: Double-tap with one finger (or pinch open).
Zoom out: Tap with two fingers (or pinch closed).
Note: If Location Not Available appears below a friend’s name, ask the friend to make sure that the device sharing their location is online, signed in with their Apple ID, has Find My (or Find My Friends) turned on in Settings > Privacy > Location Services, and is still sharing their location. See the Apple Support article If Find My Friends isn’t working.
Change distance units
You can see distances on the map in miles or kilometers.
In Find My Friends on iCloud.com, tap Me.
In the Distances section, choose In Miles or In Kilometers in the pop-up menu, then tap Done.
