Pro Tip: Access your family member's locations

With Apple's Family Sharing, you can access your family member's locations using the family organizer. Once location sharing is turned on, the organizer's location is automatically shared with the group. Then, each person can choose whether or not to share their location as well. Other members in the family organizer can view other member's locations in Find My Friends and Messages.

The family organizer can be a reliable safety tool if a member's phone is stolen, lost, or if someone is missing.
