If you're in a new city on a business trip, riding in the back of an Uber or stuck in traffic, you can share your location with loved ones and colleagues so they know where you are and that you're OK.
I use these tools to avoid the "text me when you get home," conversation we often have. When I share my location, my friends and family know I've made it home after a long drive. Also, I'm in full control, so I can turn off the sharing whenever I want.
Here's how to do it with each of those.

For each of these, the other person (or people) will receive a link or a map that shows exactly where you are. If you're in a place you shouldn't be — maybe lost in a city — they'll know that. If you're in traffic and are running late, they'll be able to see that, too.
