Find My iPhone says offline

Please help.

I have my husbonds icloud email and password, I can log in, but i cant see the location of the iphone with Find My iPhone, it always says offline, especially when he says he is at work night shift. Is there anything i need to do to see the phone location from my computer or maybe need to change something in his iphone? Need to know the truth have a little one and need to make right things for our future.
Thank you

If Find My iPhone is showing 'offline', there is nothing you can do.
It will show offline if:
The iphone has no signal
Find my Iphone is not configured
Find My iphone is disabled
Location services are disabled
The phone is powered off.

See this page for more info on how GPS tracking gets disabled on the iPhone: disable iPhone tracking

Same thing for me. I am trying to track my daughter's phone, and Find My iPhone app on MY phone says hers is offline. And it is not. The phone is on, it is connected to the wifi, and location services ARE enabled. Why doesn't Find My iPhone see the phone? It did work a few weeks ago when I first loaded the app, but hasn't worked ever since.

I am having the same issue. It appears when my son goes to a remote area that doesn't have wifi, the phone says offline. But when he is back near wifi, then it seems to take about 24 hours to work again. Sometimes the app says 'this phone' and sometimes 'now'. It only seems to track his phone when it says 'now'. In all cases, his Find My Iphone is 'on' and locations services.

That answer is not true......my husbands' IPhone on my phone is coming up offline and everything that needs to be done is done. I think it's the new update.

I think it is the update too. Looking up location on computer worked til then and now offline, but I checked and icloud find my phone is on and location enable so all left is the update (which sucked my husband hated).

I'f you have tracked the person before it shows up on
The location settings - in a list below. If its offline everytime then they
Have turned that Find iPhone setting off. And if they have done that
It's clear to me - no smoke without fire! If you have nothing to hide
Then you wouldn't care putting someone's mind at rest.

I would like to know how to deleted that out of the list so they can't turn it off ?
Any ideas ?

you can enable restrictions in the iPhone and and then it cannot be turned off without the passcode that you set.
