Google collects Android users location data even when location services are disabled

Google is collecting Android users location data even when location services are turned off on Android devices

According to a report, Android smartphones are collecting users locations data and able to send it to Google even when your device location services are turned off. When devices just got simply connected to internet and Android smartphones are also able to do this while you haven’t inserted any sim card or didn’t use any app based on location services,

A Quartz investigation report has been disclosed this information. Google confirmed this investigation and said it was the end of this execution this month.

Since the beginning of this year, Android running devices are gathering location information of users from the nearby cellular towers and sending that data to Google while they are connected to the internet.  This practice even works after customers factory reset their devices. This is against the privacy of the users and puts the user information on risk.

According to Google, this location tracking data collecting feature will be rolling out on all the android devices by end of this month.
