This is for both Android and iPhone

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/12/how-to-stop-apps-from-tracking-your-location.html

I may have posted this before, but it's worth repeating.

@Bambino

Thanks for the heads up. Currently though I have no problem with apps tracking my location.

Nowadays, I don't go far enough for them to bother me innocent

Re: How To Stop Apps From Tracking You

I had a look on my phone but the direction given didn't lead me to anything. (Advanced wasn't there) I did find location but I could only see recent apps that had requested location. 

So is there a place I can go where I can see all the apps that have location access. Android 8.0 btw
