I only see 5 line items in my frequent history. is that all I have or how do I view more history of past locations? or does this clear out and update like one a month? i'm just looking for more past locations but only see the 5 line items in the history.

Pretty great post. Thanks for sharing such important information. Recently I have used iLostFinder for tracking my lost iPhone. It works better. Users may try.

I'm not worried about my hubby knowing where I am or go. I'm worried about someone who steals my phone or hackers knowing where I live and work.
