Currently, the number of people who have smartphones and personal computers has increased significantly. In particular, Apple’s iPhone is one of the most popular brands in the world. We all use smartphone every day, but I think some iPhone users are worried that someone might know where they are.
◆ Why is the location information of your iPhone known ?
● If you are sharing location information
On iPhone, you can share location information with friends and acquaintances by using apps such as Find My iPhone and Find My Friends. It’s a convenient function, but if you set the location information to be shared by “Search”, you can easily find out where you are at that time.
● Your Apple ID and password are known to the other party
If your Apple ID and password are known to the other party, your iPhone’s location will also be known. Because if you lose your iPhone, you usually find it with the Find My iPhone feature. Therefore, if the other person knows your Apple ID and password, your location information will also be known.
● Location information leaked from photos taken and SNS
It is possible that the location information is shared at the same time by uploading the photos taken with the iPhone to SNS or sending them to other people. Because Exfi is left with the photo taken as a record. Exfi also records location information, photographer information, and shooting date and time.

Check the location information usage settings of each app
Go to “Settings” → “Privacy” → “Location services”, and you can individually set the usage status of the location services of each app installed on the iPhone when the location services are turned on.
Turn off location sharing settings

Turn off frequently used location information
Open the location services screen from the settings. Scroll down the location services screen and tap System Services, then Frequently Used Locations.
