Facebook friend location search

Site Logo

The ability to track and locate an individual is no longer as difficult as it appears in the movies. Wiretaps and bugs can be replaced with something as simple as a smartphone — to a certain extent. Just hop on Facebook Messenger to pinpoint their location so you can make the trip in person. Creepy, huh? The Facebook Messenger app actually poses more of a risk than you might imagine. This is especially true for those who have hundreds of friends, not all of which are people you may have ever actually met.

How You Can Track Someone’s Location Using Facebook Messenger

A newly-released tool lets you easily track the movements of other Facebook users and plot them on a map, by scooping up the location data they have shared in Facebook Messenger chats. They are all fairly active on the chat, posting once a day or more.

By simply looking at the cluster of messages sent late at night you can tell exactly where his dorm is, and in fact approximately where his room is located in that dorm. And, as far as I can tell, there is no way to delete the location data from past messages you have sent. Such creepy collection and examination of location data has clear implications for not just consumers, but also businesses. If your company is being targeted by criminals , they may attempt to learn the schedules of your workers — hoping to launch man-in-the-middle attacks over unsecured WiFi in coffee shops, or determine the home addresses of senior executives.

All they would need to do to begin to collect the data is start an online chat with you, perhaps posing as a potential customer or romantic interest.

The potential for abuse, whether it be by organised criminal gangs targeting an enterprise , or jealous former partners and obsessive stalkers, should be clear. So, you need to place your trust in the apps themselves, and use their options when it comes to location sharing:. At the time of writing the Chrome extension no longer works properly — its popularity means that it quickly smashed through the API calls limit that its mapping service provided — but programmer Aran Khanna has made the code available on Github for more technically-minded users to roll their own version.

Khanna, who starts working as an intern at Facebook next month, says that the company is working on fixing the issue — although no details have been provided yet as to how it will do this or a timescale as to when. My advice? Toggle navigation.
