Control which apps access your location




Just a few hours ago we learned that there were several applications in the App Store that accessed our location and shared it with third parties without us having a voice or vote .

It is a very serious practice that involves a loss of our privacy and privacy . For this reason, it is important to know what applications have the location on our iPhone activated and how to deactivate it to avoid problems.

Control which apps access your location
First of all, there are certain applications that need to access our location . For example, do not be surprised if applications like Google Maps or Time are allowed access to our location.
However there are many other applications that ask for access to localization services and probably do not need it to work properly , for example many games. That's why this is how you can disable the location of applications on the iPhone:
  • The first thing we must do is go to Settings .
  • Once there, click on Privacy and then on Location .
  • Here we can deactivate the location completely or choose which apps can use it.
  • We will see a long list with all the apps we have on the iPhone.
  • Clicking on one of them will give us access permissions to the location.
  • We have three options : never, when the app is used and always.


Our recommendation is to never put in all those apps that do not need our location to work. In those that necessarily need it, the most advisable thing is to select the option of only when the app is used . This will prevent us from being located at any time. By the way, if a little arrow appears on the list next to the app, you have recently accessed our location.
Our location is something fundamental that we must protect and following these steps you can control that the apps you have installed only know when necessary. Privacy is not a joke and you have to take it seriously.
