Today we often make use of different social networks and we often add and accept people we don't really know about and to be on a safer side, we definitely need to know if these friends are for real by tracing the location of the person you are chatting with. That's what you are about to learn in this post, keep reading!!! And I'm gonna make this discussion a favour to Facebook. However, the same method can also be used to trace friends’ location on Whatsapp

Yes! It is possible to legally find your friend's location when you both are chatting on the Facebook social platform. But most of your Facebook friends may not want to share their location with you and by doing that, they will have to disable sharing location from facebook default settings and having any of your facebook friend done that, you can now only find their location when permission is granted to you, that is it will be their will to share their location with you.

But despite the above default method, many Facebook users can still find their friend's location without the friend even noticing of such activity. In this post, you will find out how it works.  I have already discussed how it can be done below,  so just keep reading through this post and you will definitely come across them.

How To Find Your Friend’s Location On Facebook.
It's good to know that you are here.
The best method of getting access to a friend's location on Facebook is the use of the friend's IP.

In case you don't know, an IP address is an important service of modern computer devices designed to allow one computer to communicate with another via the Internet.

Facebook monitors our chat and other activities as well as where the actions are taking place via our IP address.

How To Trace the IP Address.
1. By using command prompt.
The command prompt is one of the best methods you can actually use to find out the IP address of a person whom you are chatting with on Facebook. Just follow the steps below to proceed.

Step 1. At first, you need to start a chat with your friend whose IP address is your need. While chatting with the person, make sure that all other apps and background process must be stopped. Now press Win+R on your keyboard.

Step 2. Now type cmd and hit enter.

Step 3. Now at the command prompt that appears type netstat -an and hit enter.

Step 4. Now note down the IP address of a person.
Step 5. Now you need to scan that IP address to know the actual location of the person that you can check out from's all you need to know using Command prompt.

2. Using InspectLet
InspectLet is an online tool that can help you track out the IP Address of the person while chatting on any social platform. Why I love InspectLet is that the service tracks everything when a person visits a website.

How to get started with InspectLet?
You just need to register on InspectLet and once you logged into the service you will be provided with a tracking code which you have to install your tracking code on a web page.

Now here comes the real game, after installing the tracking code simply send victim the link and make him open the link. InspectLet will record all activity along with the IP address and other details.

Hope it works?
