How to track partner's position via WhatsApp - VermaNotes

VermaNotes - The WhatsApp messaging application has a feature that is able to track the location of a partner.


The feature is called Live Location. With this feature, users and other users can share real-time location.  This location sharing feature can be done for a certain period of time and can be done individually or in groups.

When using the Live Location feature, users will get a static map image display to see the location points of other users who share their location.

WhatsApp guarantees the security of this Live Location feature because it is end-to-end encrypted.

So it's impossible if anyone other than you and the user who shared the location can see the shared location.

In addition to finding the location point of a partner, this feature can also be useful for maintaining the safety of relatives or family who are on their way to a location that feels foreign, such as using public transportation such as conventional taxis or online delivery services.


Here's how to share your location via WhatsApp on your cellphone:

  1. Open the WhatsApp application.
  2.  Find and decide who you will share your location with.
  3.  Then in the compose message field, tap the paper clip icon or paperclip.
  4.   Then select the Location option.
  5.   Next select the option Share Current Location or Share Live Location.
  6.   Select the time duration for sharing the location.
  7. After that tap Send to start sharing your location.

Live Location will be presented using Google Maps.  If you share in a group, everyone in the group can see the location.

On the other hand, if a person in a contact shares their location, you can find out their location on WhatsApp.


How to find someone's location via Command Prompt

Apart from going through the Live Location feature of Whatsapp, how to find out someone's location can also be done using the Command Prompt feature from a computer or laptop without the need to download an application.

Even so, this method is said to only work if it is done with WhatsApp Web.  Here are the steps to quote We The Geek.


  1.  Open WhatsApp Web and search for the user for whom you want to trace their IP address.
  2.  Close all running applications, except the browser you are currently using.  This is done to prevent interruptions during the process.
  3.   Then press Ctrl + Alt + Delete together to open Task Manager.
  4.   After it appears press Win + R on the keyboard to run the Run function on the keyboard.
  5.   After the Run function appears, type Cmd and then press Enter.
  6.  The Command Prompt window will appear.  Then type netstat-an and press enter on the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator option at the top of the window
  7.  The IP address will appear, write down or copy the address before closing the prompt.
  8.  Next, open a tab on chrome and go to www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer.  Then enter the IP address you recorded earlier to find out someone's location.
