Where do you want your location to be changed?

Same city. I want it to show I’m at the gym when I’m somewhere else

Do you mean, Apple's find my phone?

Okay, we can try and download an app from the App store.
I can't say that it will work 100%, but it is still worth trying.
What do you say?

If I’m on a family plan, will the main policy holder be able to see the new app that’s downloaded?

It seems like yes, they will be able to see that.

Then unfortunately I can’t download the app

Okay, it seems, like this was the only solution. Apple's policy can be a problem to deal with.
Customer Reply
No worries. Can I ask one more question?
Christine Tomas

Sure!

Can the policy holder see my text messages?

Do you mean on standard Messenger app on iPhone?
Family Sharing does not share messages, contacts, or other private info.
Customer Reply
Yes. Can they login to our cell phone provider and see my messages
Christine Tomas

Only if they have access to your phone physically.
