BBM location

I know this might be a simple question but I need to be 100% sure. I would like to go on bbm and chat with my teenage daughters, but I need to be absolutly certain that they would not be able to see my location. I have recently split from there dad due to dom violence and am in a refuge. He is very manipulative and would force, steal, do whatever to get info if he thought he could find out where I am.

My daughters desperatly want me to be on bbm so they can talk, see pic etc of me and their 5 year old brother.

There is a tickbox that can send you location when you BBM, but if I ever forgot / got muddled, would this send location if my gps has been turned off in my BB settings?

many thanks for your advice in advane!
