Location sharing "until i turn it off" no longer available?
0
Location sharing on my phone allows me to share "until i turn it off"/indefinitely, but now on my partners phone it only allows him to share it up to 24 hours before it automatically switches off. There was the option at least until a week ago we noticed it had turned off and now there is no option to keep sharing on. The maps app is up to date so not sure what the problem is, its annoying to have to keep turning it on after 24 hours.

Screenshot attached what it shows on his phone vs mine.

I'have same issue with my son, which uses iPhone (while I'm on Android).
It seems to me that the limitation to prolong sharing location to go over 24 hours (option "Always" or "Until disabled"is disappeared now) affects Google Maps when running on Apple device.

Google guys, please could you answer and fix, if possible???

Hi Sarah Muzica,
 
Welcome to the Google Maps community.
 
Google has age requirements for using certain features. These features are only available for users whose accounts have been verified to meet the minimum age requirements.

Hi Keith,

Dont think its anything to do with account age, the option was showing on his account previously and now just isnt available. We both have the same Android devuce same version so not sure why it doesnt show on his but is fine for me.

Thanks

We've just had the exact same problem, my daughter is 20 and her birthday is on her account. It was fine until 2 days ago

I agree with Sarah Musica, the account of my son is the same from the beginning and it worked before with neverending location sharing.
Something might be changed elsewhere on Google maps

Same problem here in the UK. I've turned off Family Link supervision for my 15 year old, but she can't share her location with us indefinitely.

Her account is verified and all seems ok with it.

Google team, something is off here and it's rather frustrating. My daughter iPhone has shared her location with her mum indefinitely. However she is not able to do it with me longer than 24 hrs. Please do check and rectify this

I had that same issue and after playing with it I figured it out. When you go to share your location, do it with their gmail instead of their phone or something like that and it should stay on. Just add their email to their contact in your phone and you should be able to select their email when you go to share it with them. Idk why it is like this but that's how I got it to work for more than 24 hours
