Google Collects Data on your Android phone even when the location service turned off
Even if users turn off location services, most Android smartphones still collect location information and send it to Google. Android phones collect information from smartphones around the user, which determines the user’s location and sends this information to Google.
Consumer privacy activists say it is a fraud on the part of consumers. Google said that information from Android phones never saved and that Android updated to prevent this from happening in the future.
Smartphones are gathering data from nearby mobile phones and transfer it to Google. This information used to determine the user’s location. Smartphones collect this information even if the location services turned off in the settings, and even if the phone does not have a SIM card. There is no option to stop the phone from collecting this information.
What Other Things Not Known To Smartphone Users?
The question arises as to what other things not known to smartphone users. Privacy International, an organization working for consumer privacy, says it is clear that people have no control over their smartphones.
“While we purchase a smartphone, we don’t suppose it to deceive us.”
Although Google has said it will stop collecting information in this way, the question arises as to what other things not known to smartphone users.
