Manam oka place ki velli 5 mins undagane, ilanti notifications osthunay. GPS on undadam valla ani anukuntamu, aa notification ni clear chesesthamu. Done!
Ee notifications ni Google Maps ➡ Settings ➡ Notifications lo off cheyachu.


Kani ee maya prapancham lo manaki teliyani vinthalu, viseshalu enno. Andhulo ee Google products konni! Front end manam daily vadesthuntam, annitiki access lu ichestham. Kani backend lo mana data tho vallu adeskuntaru!
Memu cheppalanukuntuna vishayam entante GPS on lekapoina sare, manaki ee notifications osthay, adhi kooda exact locations tho 😱
GPS off unna na location ee Google ki ela telusu abba ankuntunara? Common bhayya, Google adhi. Mana jeevitham gurinchi manakante dhanike ekkuva telsu.


GPS off untenem, Google maps ki eppudu location access enable ayi untundhi! Sare Location access tisedham ante kudardhu. Turning off your Location History only stops Google from creating a timeline of your location that you can view.


So, GPS off chesina, Maps ki location access tisesina idhi still work avthundhi. Mobile lo apps install chesetappudu konni pop-ups osthay, vatini chudakundane allow kottestham. Andhulo ‘Allow **** to access this device’s location?’ ani kooda untadhi. So, location enabled apps will still track you and store time-stamped location data from your devices even with your GPS off.


Okasari settings lo App permissions lo Location enni apps ki allowed undho chudandi!


Ela track chestadhi ane vishayaniki ochesthe, there are many techniques behind this, but the major one is GeoLocation!
Suppose miru oka place ki vellaru, GPS on ledhu. Kani WiFi scanner eppudu daggarlo unde devices ni scan chesi vati IP address along with location save cheskuntadhi. Ivala repu router leni illu gani office gani undha cheppandi! So more the number of routers, more precise is your location.


More about ‘Wi-Fi scanning’ – it means that location and other apps will be able to scan for Wi-Fi networks even when your device’s Wi-Fi radio is off. Thus, your phone or tablet can still gather location data and assemble a general idea of your comings and goings.


Phone receive cheskune WiFi signal strength batti exact location ekkada undacho save cheskuntadhi. They have a giant database on their servers with this information. So, Google uses nearby routers to locate us.
Other technique includes tracking location from nearby Cell towers. Kani usual ga mobile network companies Google ki aa access ivvadhu. So, they mostly depends on WiFi routers and IP addresses.


Google Web & App activity:
Type in your browser, manam mobile lo eppudu em chesamo prathi activity recorded untadhi. Go to Activity controls from left hand menu. Akkada mi Google Location History on untadhi.


Also check your location settings via normal Settings. Anni ON untay, so obviously mana midha boledanni kallu untay.


Complete ga location features ni disable chesina, we lose a lot of functionality. Location services are useful unless you’re extremely privacy sensitive!
Inkoka vishayam entante, miru maps lo answers/reviews ichukuntu Local guides kooda avvachu anta. Dhaniki rewards kooda istharu anta, try cheyandi mari 😛
