The issue of maintaining location privacy on users’ devices has always been an unresolved question. There are undoubtedly many features that allow you to disable the display of your location, however, if Google wants to constantly “see” your location, can it do so? Or is it already doing it?

According to BusinessInsider, which cites official court documents filed in connection with the Arizona attorney general’s lawsuit against Apple for its practice of collecting personal data, maintaining the privacy of users’ location is almost impossible!

According to the lawsuit, Google sued because it continued to collect location data from mobile phones. This was even the case when Android users turned off “data sharing”.

Employees of the company claimed that Google collected the location’s personal data using the location from “WiFi”. In addition, the sorting of location data was done equally by applications that did not belong to Google and the detection of hackers becomes impossible!

Google, apparently, cheated users, violated their rights to protect their personal data and they were unaware of it!

However, the company expects the situation to improve with the release of Android 12, which is said to bring significant changes to user privacy. In fact, as it is reported, Google seeks to keep pace with the changes made by Apple to protect the personal data of users.
