    I allowed someone to temporarily access my Find My Friends location. I used the "notify them" feature, and set it to repeat each time.

    The issue is that after the temporary event ended and I removed them from Find My Friends, it STILL notifies them when I leave my apartment.

    I cannot find a way to undo this!

    Stalker app working as intended.

    Tried deleting and re-installing it?

    Try re-adding them to Find My Friends, disabling the setting, then removing them again.
    Deleting the app. Although reinstalling it may not fix anything, but worth a shot.
    Idk anything else. The app was not at all intended to be used by stalkers. It can, obviously, but that's not it's intended purpose.

    Already tried deleting it and re-adding it before posting this.

    When I re-add them, and view the "notify XXXX" settings, it doesn't show as any existing "notify XXXX" settings have been created. They are "shadow" settings that seem to exist but can't be deleted!

    EDIT:

    Figured it out. If you click on your own name in the list, then select notifications, they all show up! Just very different from the prior functionality, and not exactly easy to find. Phew.

    Agreed. I was having trouble turning off an old notification and stumbled onto the solution.

    Off topic rant: Another black eye for iOS 7. Usability down the drain to give us blue words on a white background.

    But it's so beautiful and futuristic--that surely more than makes up for it being that much harder to instinctively and instantly locate all the controls and strain to read them to know what they actually are. After all we all have our phones primarily for how cool they look so that we can show off in some fashion, don't we? ;-)

    It was like that before. Controls for notifying people of your arrival or departure were always separate.

    Ah, my bad. I realize now that the notification I was talking about was for someone else. Thank you for the clarification.
