There's an optional Find My Friends app which lets you check peoples' location at any time. You have to explicitly request it and they have to explicitly authorize it. You can also set up temporary events for e.g. visits to family so that you can keep track of each other temporarily but then have it expire.

I personally find it to be incredibly useful for meeting friends and such. Of course, if you don't like it, you don't have to use it.
