Find My Friends: Select the device sharing your location

Select the device sharing your location

If you’re using Find My Friends on multiple devices, choose which device you want your friends to see when they follow you. You can follow your friends on each of your devices, but friends can follow only one of your devices.

  1. Tap Me.

  2. Tap a device below Share My Location From.

    If you’re no longer using a device, swipe left across the device name, then tap Delete.

If you share your location from an iPhone that’s paired with Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular), your location is shared from your Apple Watch when you’re out of range of your iPhone and Apple Watch is on your wrist.

Note: You can stop sharing your location from your Apple Watch. Go to Settings > General > Location Services, then turn off Share My Location.

If you use HomePod, personal requests are enabled from the device that’s sharing your location in Find My Friends.

If you have HomeKit-enabled accessories set up with automations that run when you arrive at or leave a specific place, they occur based on the location of the device you use to share your location in Find My Friends.
