How do you pause your location on Find My iPhone?

Hi there! I’m new to using an iPhone and I want to know if there’s a way to stop sharing my location temporarily. I’m sharing it with my uncle all the time, but I want to stop for a bit without telling him. I know it shows when I’m online, but is there a button I can press to pause it?

Yes, you can temporarily stop sharing your location on an iPhone. Here’s how:

  1. Open the “Find My” app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on the “People” tab at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Find the person with whom you’re sharing your location and tap their name.
  4. On their profile, you’ll see options for sharing your location. Toggle off the “Share My Location” switch to temporarily stop sharing your location.

This will stop sharing your location until you manually turn it back on. Keep in mind that your uncle will see that your location sharing has been turned off.
