Turning on location services

Turning on location services

You can choose to turn on location services to allow apps to use your location information and provide you with a rich mobile experience. For example, your GPS location can be stored on the photos that you take with the Camera app. You can also use Maps to display your location.
  1. On the Start screen, slide to the left.
  2. Tap Settings > location.
  3. Tap the Location services On/Off switch. Apps for which you enable location services can now access your current location.

Turning off a location service means no applications on your phone will collect your location data through that location service. However, third party applications may collect — and your phone may continue to provide — location data through other services, including through Wi-Fi and signal triangulation.
