The location tracking feature in Android smartphones makes it easier to use certain apps like Google Maps. With this feature turned on, it’ll be easier to locate, for example, the nearest diner. However, enabling this feature has security implications.
As you learn about the various features of your Android smartphone, you will come across location services and whether or not you want to approve them. If you think this convenient feature is harmless, think again. Sometimes it’s best to hide your location in your smartphone as this can affect your device’s security.
