Find your family on a map
Make sure your family is set up to share their location with each other. In the Microsoft Family Safety app, each person manages their own settings for location sharing, so it’s best to set these up together.
Setting up location sharing is a two-step process.
Step 1: Make sure device permissions are allowed. Each device will be slightly different based on the make and model. Look for these device-level settings under general location and battery settings, or in your device settings under the Family Safety app.
Google Location Accuracy is On
Battery optimization is Off
Location access is Allowed
Location access is Always allowed
Step 2: In the Family Safety app, turn on location sharing.
Go to Settings > tap on the relevant family member > tap Share your location > Turn on location sharing
Each family member can choose to share their location with the Family Safety Share your location setting. If an organizer wants to help someone share their location, they’ll need access to the family member’s device.
