In today’s time, location is one of the most crucial features of our smartphones that helps us to find places and routes. Apart from that our location is also utilised by certain apps to function properly or to access specific services. For example, the Paytm app needs the location to be turned on while logging into Paytm Bank. Likewise, several other apps use our mobile’s location.
Knowingly or unknowingly we might have given access to many of the apps to use our location all the time. If you want to view which apps are using your location or just want to change their permission, then this article is for you where we have thoroughly described how you can view the apps that are using your location service. Also once you have successfully found out which apps are continuously using your location and you want to disable it then you can easily disable your location permission from the Android settings.
