How to track the location of WhatsApp contacts

WhatsApp can be used to locate contacts in an emergency, in addition to being a social media program for posting and calling. It is possible to monitor a user’s location for safety considerations if they have been offline for days or even months, or if they have sent messages that have not been delivered after a long period.

Sometimes your WhatsApp contacts may not have enabled permissions via WhatsApp to access location, don’t worry this method will work whatsoever.
