Snapchat Location History: How to See Where They Are

Agnes W Linn

Snapchat is arguably the most fun social media app around — and that’s precisely why you need an app to see their Snapchat location history. Seriously, Snapchat can be extremely dangerous.

Talk to your kids and they’ll tell you how much fun they have playing with different lenses to create all kinds of funky pics and videos. What they won’t tell you about is all the strangers they’ve connected with — including the random strangers who show up on their Snap Map.

These are people in your community that they can connect with, chat with, and meet up in person with.

Worried? Don’t be. Once you learn how to see someone’s location on Snapchat, you’ll be able to relax, knowing that they’re safe.

Remember, in most jurisdictions around the world, it’s perfectly legal to use a Snapchat location finder as long as you’re using it to find your own kid’s location, assuming that they’re under 18 and under your care.

Solution #1: Get mSpy

mSpy is a powerful Snapchat location tracker designed to find out their location without them knowing that you’re tracking them. It’s a handy tool for parents looking to track their kids and keep them safe, no matter where in the world they happen to be.

Just install mSpy on their device once and you’ll have access to their location whenever they use Snapchat. Finding out where they are is as simple as signing in to your mSpy Control Panel.

But we know you want to do much more than just find out how to see someone’s location on Snapchat. You want to see their location even when they’re not using Snapchat. mSpy is the perfect solution for that because it doesn’t require that they have Snapchat open to see their location.

In fact, if they happen to delete Snapchat, you’ll still be able to see their location — as long as they’ve got mSpy installed. And you won’t have to worry about them uninstalling mSpy. The app works in hidden mode, so they won’t even be aware that you’re trying to view their Snapchat location history.

Moreover, it’s one of the best ways to check their Snapchat chat history as well!

Tracking them through Snapchat isn't enough?

Solution #2: Use the Snap App

Did you know that Snapchat has a built-in Snapchat location tracker? If you’ve got Snapchat, open your profile. Then, scroll down to Snap Map and tap Open. As soon as you do, you’ll see a world map. If your friends are sharing their location, you’ll be able to see them on the map.

For this Snapchat location finder to work, you’ll need to be friends with the person you’re tracking on Snapchat. If you aren’t, they won’t appear on your map. What’s more, you’ll also need to share your location in the Snap Map to be able to see other people’s locations.

Solution #3: Use Apple Find My

Figuring out how to track someone through Snapchat isn’t easy. In fact, if you’ve attempted to find someone’s location, there’s a good chance you’ve hit a few roadblocks. But if you pair Snapchat with your phone’s built-in location-finding tools, you’ll have a fairly decent solution.

First, let’s look at iPhone. Apple has included a built-in feature called Find My. It lets you find all kinds of things, like your own Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac) and even your favourite items, thanks to Apple AirTag, a tiny device that lets you track anything.

And if they’ve got an iPhone, you can use Find My to find them. Just grab their phone, open Find My, and choose to share their location with your iCloud account. Once it’s set up, you can pop into the Find My app and see where they are.

It should be noted, however, that you won’t be able to view their Snapchat location history. This method is limited to seeing their current location.

Solution #4: Use Google Maps

If you’re an Android user, don’t be too jealous of Find My. You can choose to share their location through Google Maps. First, you’ll need to add your address to their Google Contacts.

When that’s done, sign in, and tap their profile, followed by Location sharing, followed by New share. Next, choose how long you want to share your location and lock it in by tapping Share.

When you want to view their location, just pop into Google Maps, hit your profile pic, and tap Location sharing. Then tap the icon of the person you want to locate.

Keep in mind that while knowing how to track someone’s Snapchat using this method is helpful, it doesn’t show you their location history. And in some cases, they might be notified that you want to view their location.

See Their Location In Other Apps Too

Snapchat is fun. But it’s not the only game in town. Chances are they use all kinds of social media apps to connect with different groups of friends. If you want to see their location no matter what app they’re using, mSpy is your best bet.

And once you know how to track a Snapchat account location using mSpy, you’re good to go for any other app. With mSpy, it’s as easy as logging in to your Control Panel. There, you’ll find a dedicated Locations section where you can view their current and previous locations on a map.

mSpy can even alert you when they come and go from virtually any location in the world. It’s that intelligent.

Get More from Your Snapchat Location History App

mSpy does more than just location tracking. It lets you read their texts, see their social media conversations, view screenshots of their phone activity, see who they called (and who called them), see their website history, view their photos and videos, and so much more.

If you want to do much more than just learn how to find someone’s location on Snapchat, definitely consider mSpy.

You won’t find a more capable legal monitoring solution out there. It’s no wonder why millions of people around the world trust mSpy for Snapchat location history details and so much more.

There’s no better monitoring solution!

  • Hi, I’ve got mspy connected to my childs mobile and it sent updates for a week but then stopped. At the same time their Snapchat changed from doing updates frequently to only when they were using it, and then quite infrequently.

    I checked their settings, and nothing has changed in mspy, and the Snapchat is set to “always on” location share.

    The only thing that has changed is that they have a “dual sim” (i.e. two sim cards) – as one is an unlimited data only sim we found them, the other is their phone / text which is part of a family deal (the data on it is too expensive).

    We do get updates from mSpy – but only their text / call history, and information about the device (battery, last connected etc). We are no longer getting any GPS or key logs.

    I dont think they are changing any settings – so I dont know why its not working, unless the dual sim mobile data is causing a problem.

    Any ideas?

    • Hi, Graham! Might be because of the unstable internet connection when the app doesn’t have enough time to transfer the data. Or maybe there was an OS update on the phone that now interferes with the app’s functionality. Could you please email our support team at They will help you figure out what’s wrong.

  • Did you find a solution because I have the same problem. It stopped working. I was told to uninstall. I have uninstalled twice an reinstalled and it doesn’t work. My subscription will nlt bw renewed. Emailed support and receive the same response reinstall, makes no sense.
