    In the Find Friends app, select the Me button and then turn on "Hide from Followers"

    No need to sign out, stay signed in and use Hide from Followers. Then when you want to be found again, just turn Hide From Followers off.

    Hey guys

    What would it say if location was set to hidden?

    Say if it normally track well all the time, and right now I cannot locate my gf but she receives Imessages fine (meaning she got good internet connection) can it be down to hide setting? Or when you select Hide from followers it will say to others location hidden or something along those lines?

    im not sure, but i have had friends whose location says something along the lines of "Location Unavailable" when I know they didnt have themselves hidden. one of my co-workers, who works 50 yards from me, his location locates him at a location almost a mile away from here for some reason. the app is not perfect thats for sure.

    It should say "Location Unavailable" if they hide their location

    Curious question, how much data does this consume since its running all the time and sending location data?

    Yes, my friend and I tested it when Find My Friends launched. If it's set to off, that's what you'll see.

    or maybe you had a bad signal and it couldnt get the data, but she may have just switched it back on
