Hello, I just got a Samsung phone S23 Ultra and a Smarttag 2. I use the SmartThings app, in which I can locate my SmartTag2 when it's at home and outside my home.

But now I want to share these 2 devices' locations with my wife. She also has a Samsung phone A34. I followed some guides on the web but it does not seem to work. Could somebody give me a link to the correct method?

Thanks in advance,

DS

The critical part is the last sentence, you must got into the device, within Smartthings, click and it takes you into the Find app, then click more and share location.

As @GiraffeNeckLong said both phones must do this.

That said when I want to find my sons mobile, in Find app I must hamburger icon below the location icon, then click member devices and then select the device.

If you share with my than two people, so for me my wife and son, then the above process doesn't work, you must go into the Smartthings app, top right use the drop down and pick the person, then the device.

I have a problem with SmartTag2 adding a 2nd user saying Not allowed (To locate and control this tag,the owner needs to share it with you in SmartThings Find). Original SmartTag works fine. I have given the user Full Access and trying Control Device Only.
