    Okay, I'd like there to be a feature that when you leave a certain area (eg, a 2 mile radius from your home), then people can see where you are if you don't mind. The location is so specific on the map and I don't want people to see where I live but I wouldn't mind people knowing where I was if I wasn't at home. Does that make sense? I add online friends on Snapchat all the time but I don't want them to know which house I live at.
    Maybe if you could draw a circle in an area and if you enter that area, ghost mode appears or selected friends can see where you are. When you leave this area, everyone, or selected friends can see where you are. I hope this does actually make sense.

    It's a very good idea tbf. I know Strava has this feature when you upload your ride/run, so your followers can't stalk where you live.

    You could turn it off when at home then on again when you're out.

    I don't remember to do that, it's just a thought though.
