Facebook Changes Location Settings on Android to Reassure Users

#digitaltoday

According to Facebook, the company is changing the way it uses Location Services on Android, which tracks where users are at any given point of time, and can do so even when the app is active in the background, in order to let users dictate when, specifically, that capacity is being used.

On iOS, users have more control over how their location is shared, but on Android, the options are more wide-ranging. This update will give Android users more control over that, which is better for users, obviously, while it also gives Facebook a bit of a PR win, in that it can promote the proactive steps it’s taking to help users control how their information is tracked.
