How to Secretly Track Your Friend’s Location Using iPhone and iPad

Tracking your friend’s location using iPhone/iPad can be offensive; but you care about those who are close to your heart.

If you are worried about your kids’ whereabouts, you can always buy smartwatch for kids to keep an eye on your children.
