It’s for real and unbelievable, and even more so freaky because you have to opt in to do it. You can also block people who you don’t want to see your location just from seeing your location but still have access to all the other features like say for instance, an adolescent blocking their location from their parent. I was like, WTF? You and your friends are willingly doing this crazy shit? What!!? Turn that off. That’s creepy and weird.
