How to TRACK someone's location via whatsapp

The Whatsapp application has a feature that can be used to track the location of other people, including family or friends who are traveling back and forth.

This method can be done with the features in the application, without the need to download third-party applications. In addition to the features provided, WhatsApp also allows you to show other people's locations to you indirectly via WhatsApp Web.

There are at least three ways that WhatsApp users can find out the location of other people. Among them through the Command Prompt which can be accessed via WhatsApp web or Windows OS.

1. Check Location via Command Prompt

The first way, users can find out the location of a WhatsApp user with the Command Prompt feature which is operated from a computer or laptop.

The Command Prompt feature is a built-in feature that is already available on every Windows-based computer, so users don't need to download any applications if the PC uses Windows OS.

Searching the location through the Command Prompt uses the Internet Protocol (IP) Address search method or an IP address that becomes the identity of a device in its activities on the internet.

However, this method can only be done via WhatsApp Web. Here are the steps:

  1. Open WhatsApp Web and search for the user whose IP address you want to track.
  2. Close all running applications, except the browser you are using to prevent interruptions during the IP search process.
  3. Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete simultaneously to open Task Manager.
  4. After the Task Manager appears, press Win + R on the keyboard to run the Run function on the keyboard.
  5. Type Cmd then press Enter.
  6. A 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. An IP address will appear, write down or copy the address before closing the prompt.
  8. Then open a tab in Chrome and go to www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer.
  9. Then enter the IP address that has been copied to find out the location of the person.


2. Check Location via Live Location

Another way to check location via WhatsApp is to take advantage of the live location feature. This feature can notify the user's location to the desired person in real-time. Here's how to share with the Live Location feature via WhatsApp on your cellphone.

  1. Open the WhatsApp app
  2. Search 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. Choose the time duration to share the location
  7. Then tap Send to start location sharing

Live Location will be served using a map application available on the recipient's phone such as Google Maps. If you share in a group, everyone in the group can see your shared location.

On the other hand, if the person in your contact shares their location, you can also find out the other person's current location when traveling using public transportation, taxis, or online delivery services.

3. Check Location via Share Location

The next feature is Share Location which is slightly different from Live Location. Share Location doesn't give recipients real-time location of the user, but only the location that was shared at that time.

However, the difference is that the Share Location feature does not apply for a certain period. As long as the message is still in the chat field, the shared location remains visible.

  1. Open the WhatsApp app
  2. Search for the contact you want to share your location with
  3. Then in the compose message field, tap the paperclip icon
  4. Select Location option
  5. Then select the option Send Your Current Location or Send Current Location if you want to send the current location.
  6. Select the magnifying glass icon (search menu), then type the location you want to share if you want to send another location.
  7. Click on that location

The shared location will be displayed on a map which when clicked will direct the recipient to the Google Maps app.

Here are 3 ways to check the location of your partner via WhatsApp. Through these three ways, you no longer have to worry about its existence when you are outside the house.
