To prevent Facebook from tracking your location



Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides and advice on how to easily use your gadgets, apps and connected services.

Facebook is known for capturing user data to create profiles for advertisers – and that includes location data from your phone. If you feel unwell, you can prevent Facebook's mobile app from completely tracking your location, or just allow it when using the app.

The company has introduced a new location control for Android app users.

How to Change Your Location Permission:

On iOS

  • Start the Facebook app on your phone, and then click Settings and Privacy and tap Settings.
  • Scroll to Privacy and tap the Location option.
  • Click Location and select your preferred setting as shown in the picture. I prefer a minimal tracking on my phone so I responded with "Do not allow it". Alternatively, you can specify here that your location should be accessed. "Only while using the app."
