Google Maps: You can use the map service to determine whether you have already met your partner

Through its location data, Google Maps, Google’s mapping service, allowed two lovers to find out how many times their paths had crossed before they got together. All thanks to a trick that works on both Android and iOS devices.

Google Maps hides its game well: the map service of the Google search engine makes it possible to collect the location of users in real time and continuously. But this little tool also allows you to meet people every day, including your potential soulmate, without knowing it, through a well-hidden trick. And it was a South African couple who experienced it.

In fact, Channon Perry and her lover met while on a dating application. After their first date, they had the brilliant idea of ​​finding out how many times their paths had crossed before they got together.

By researching on Google Maps, the two lovers found out that they study together at the same university. And the mapping service has identified more than 40 meetings that happened before their “date,” with a margin of error of 10 minutes within a ten-meter radius.

To find out if you already met your soulmate before the first date, you first need to make sure that the job is still pending. For this you have to go into the settings of Google Maps and press on the profile picture or on the initials (top right of the screen).

A location-based option

While accessing this information is easy for Android phones, the task is a bit more difficult for iOS devices.

In fact, on devices running Android, the operating system developed by Google, just go to the “Your trips” tab and check the location settings. If the latter is not up-to-date, simply click on “Position update deactivated”, then activate the location.

For Apple devices, on the other hand, you must first go to “Personal Content” (still in the Google Maps application settings) and scroll down the page to “Location Settings”. The message “Location Services Enabled” should appear. If this is not the case, then you have to go into the settings of the phone and set the location service to “always”. At the same time, location history must be activated in Google Maps.

So, on the Maps service on iOS devices, on the “Your Trips” tab, you can remember the trips made and find out who you met along the way.
