Snapchat continues to be one of the most popular social media apps around the world, with millions of people using it to communicate with their friends on a daily basis.

Did Snapchat get rid of Ghost Trails?

Snapchat has removed the Ghost Trails feature from the app.

On their support page, they explained: “Ghost Trails is no longer available as we roll out live location sharing to Snapchatters everywhere. You can now share your live location, even when you’re not using Snapchat!”

This feature allows you to temporarily or indefinitely share your live location with close friends or family members. It is shared with them even in Ghost Mode, however, you can also choose to stop sharing at any time.

To share your Live Location, click on a friend’s profile, scroll down to under the map, and tap ‘Share my Live Location.’ Then you can choose how long you want to share your location for.
