Currently in Argentina there are many people who, for security reasons, share their location in real time, from an app such as WhatsApp, with a family member or friend so that they can safely monitor that the person has arrived somewhere. . However, sometimes we can forget to do it, so we share a simple way so that you do not have to activate it manually every day.

Google Maps is a very complete and useful application for these cases, users have the possibility of setting warnings that indicate if a person has arrived at a place, or has left it. This is a feature that has been designed as a security tool to be used with family or close friends.

Through the Google Maps app we will be able to receive location alerts. In this way, by specifying an address, we will receive a notification on the mobile when the other person has arrived or left the site in question. Also, by permanently sharing the location we can follow the person’s route and be able to check where it comes from. Here we tell you how to use it.

To activate this function you just have to follow these steps:

1. Open the Google Maps app on your mobile

2. Tap on the profile image that will appear in the upper right corner of the screen

3. In the menu, tap on “Share location”.

4. To start location sharing with a new person, tap on the “Share with someone” button, if you want to set a notification for a person you already share location with, tap their name at the bottom of the screen

5. When you have started sharing the location permanently, tap on “Add” in the “Notifications” section

6. Choose the desired location to create an alert and choose if you want to be notified every time the other person arrives or leaves

An important fact is that the other person will be notified when you establish an alert of this type. In addition, you will know at all times that he is permanently sharing her location with you, and you can stop doing so whenever you want.
