Google Maps has a lot of helpful features. Users can share the location with friends and relatives, for example. It serves as a safety feature for some people.
One of the many helpful features of Google Maps is the ability for users to share their location with friends and family. A Tamil Nadu resident recently used this capability to retrieve his father’s pilfered phone in less than two hours.
Raj Bhagat P, the person in controversy, claimed that during their train ride, someone took his father’s bag containing his cell phone, Bluetooth earbuds, lock key, and Rs 1000. However, because Google Maps’ location sharing feature was enabled, they were able to track the thief and find the phone, apprehending him and turning him over to the authorities.
On the other hand, some individuals find location-sharing apps objectionable, while others view it as a security measure. Comparably, you may avoid your phone from getting lost while traveling by using Google Maps’ location sharing tool to keep track of it. So let’s see how to get your phone to activate this feature.
