How To Disable Location Sharing On Android Phones

Android phones automatically collect information on your location for use in apps like Google Maps. You can easily turn off this feature. Go to Menu->Location->Security and make sure the two boxes under My Location are unclicked (Use wireless networks, Use GPS satellites). Alternatively go to Settings->Privacy and unclick Use My Location.

If you want to use Google Maps or a similar app, temporarily enable location and then remember to turn it back off.

    Temporarily enable?? That’s NOT a solution!
