    When Location Services are on, you can manage each one of them separately
    .
    For example, you could turn all of them off except for Facebook, or except for Instagram. You could have half of them on and half of them off. It also gives you the option to only use it sometimes. If your phone is locked, the Location Services are not going to be active. For example, if we look at the location services for Facebook, you can choose to Never allow location services by tapping "Never" at the top of the list. You can also choose to use location services only when Facebook is open by tapping "When Using the App," or you can choose to "Always" use the location services for Facebook. However, using the Always setting uses a lot of the battery and sometimes a balance of your phone if you are not connected to WiFi.

Questions and Answers

Want to enable location in my teen's iPhone 6 incognito?

As a parent track my minor's iPhone 6. I have tried: Privacy feature enable location but it initiates a text message to my son's iPhone, you are sharing location with your mom

It looks like that neither this option nor Find My Friends will help you, as these services can be easily turned off. Set up rules that if he turns off your Find My Friends location that you will take his phone away for one month or shut off his cell service.
