You even have a way to know the location of the person through WhatsApp, but only if she agrees to reveal her position. Any act that deviates from this rule can be considered a crime.

WhatsApp’s native location functionality is exclusive to Android and iOS apps and, according to the company’s website, offers end-to-end encryption — in order to prevent unauthorized persons from intercepting someone’s location when they’re active.
