Find My feature: Share your Spot with other iPhone users

Expected read time: 2 min

Sharing is caring ❤️ With the iOS17 update, Chipolo Spot owners can now share their key and wallet finders with other iPhone users in the Find My app.

The ‘Share This Item’ feature enables you to share your tracking tag with up to 5 people when all of you have your iPhones updated to iOS17.

How to share your Chipolo Spot tracker in the Find My app

1. Open the Find My app

2. Go to Items and tap on the Chipolo Spot you want to share

3. Under Share This Item tap on Add Person

4. Find the people you want to share your Spot with

5. Tap Share in the top-right corner

The share isn’t automatic and the other person needs to accept your share before they will be able to track your Spot too.

If the person you’re sharing your Spot with doesn’t have iOS17 installed, you’ll see a message that says “not eligible for sharing” on your end.

Why should you share your Chipolo Spot?

If you’ve ever looked for the family car keys, you get the idea.

Sharing your Chipolo Spot finder will enable everyone in your family to ring the car keys, check their location on a map in the Find My app, and even use features like Precision Finding to help pinpoint their location when nearby.

No more false ‘unknown tracker’ alerts!

Apple’s anti-stalking is a great feature, but it can also be a headache if you keep getting ‘Spot found moving with you’ alerts from the key finder on your mom’s keys. These alerts are no longer triggered when you share your Spot with your family since all of you can now connect to it.

Do you know where my luggage is?

A shared Chipolo Spot luggage tracker can be a lifesaver on a trip. If you cannot connect to your luggage, it's always handy to share your tracker with another iPhone user who can check its location when you can’t.

Plus, you won’t get anti-stalking alerts on your phone from the tracker in your friend’s luggage!
