Be careful sharing your location on WhatsApp

WhatsApp’s ‘live location’ feature is really handy for coordinating meet-ups or keeping track of where your friends or family members are. But be mindful of how casually you allow people to see your live location. You can limit the length of time that your phone continues to broadcast your location, so set it to automatically switch off in a timely manner. Also watch out for sharing your live location in group chats where you may not know everyone in the group. Essentially telling strangers where you live — or that you’re not at home — could put you or your home at risk.
