Snapchat made headlines this month after it released "Snap Map."
The 'new' feature allows users to see their friends' location on a map, but as some users pointed out, Facebook released a similar tracker back in 2014.
Facebook's feature is called "Nearby Friends", but instead of revealing exactly where you are on a map, it tells you when friends are in the nearby area.
While the feature is only accessible through the mobile app, it's still a massive invasion of privacy.
So here's how to turn it off:
- Click the menu button.
- Then explore.
- Then 'Nearby Friends' (it may already be disabled, in which case no changes are necessary).
- Swipe the 'Nearby Friends' button at the top to disable the function, or customise it for certain friends groups.
