iOS 11 Lets You Stop Apps From Always Tracking Your Location

iOS 11 Lets You Stop Apps From Always Tracking Your Location

Posted June 7, 2017 at 4:10pm by iClarified · 14529 views
With the release of iOS 11, Apple will force a 'While Using the App' option for Location Services.

Previously, apps like Uber required users to 'Always' allow Location Access. This meant the app had access to your location even when the app wasn't open.

While developers always had the option of offering a 'While Using the App' option, some didn't implement it, potentially putting the privacy of users at risk.

I hope that this is implemented as a global and app-specific choice.
