As everyone knows, WhatsApp is a free mobile messaging app, which allows its users to send text and voice messages, share photos, videos and documents privately, and make voice and video calls.
We know that the application has a fairly advanced security feature, as it offers end-to-end encryption. This means that only the sender and the recipient can have access to messages. However, tracking a person’s IP location can be used to geolocate a WhatsApp contact . Explanations!
Locating your WhatsApp contacts on a smartphone

After accepting a set of permissions requested by the messaging app, it will give you the choice between a selection of addresses in the region, Send my current location or Location on WhatsApp in real time.
The difference between these two options is that a static coordinate is marked and a real-time coordinate marks the different locations as we move. It can be set to share more than 15 minutes, an hour, or eight hours.
Be geolocated on WhatsApp with an iPhone
