How other know’s your location history from your phone
What will happen if somebody is knowing all your location histroy through your phone ?
Almost everybody in today’s world is owing an Android smartphone. Common setting’s of Android are familiar to everybody, but some are not familiar and we are not giving much importance to these settings. Also our privacy is getting leaked through our phone because of these unknown settings !.
Among these setting one of the important one is google’s location access or location history. If the location access and location history option of our android phone is ON google will store all the location history in their server and it can be retrieved afterwards if needed. Google has provided this feature for our own reference but it can be misused by other’s. If your phone is accessible to other’s they can easily track our location history easily.
