    Description

    Just click on a link that points to a location, and LocationPrivacy will show up as one of the options. If you select it, then it will use the most private way possible to get the location from that link. It will then forward the location to the map app that you choose. LocationPrivacy is not really app but rather a set of "privacy filters" for all of the various ways of sharing location. When you click on a location link in one app, LocationPrivacy offers itself as an option. It then recognizes insecure methods of sharing location, and then converts them to the most private methods available. For many links, the location can be read without even going online. For others, LocationPrivacy reads the location from the webpage via Tor, so that it cannot be tracked to you. Whenever possible, the connection uses HTTPS.

    OsmAnd is the recommended map app for private location because it works fully offline and we have audited it. LocationPrivacy will work with basically all map apps. LocationPrivacy can also serve as a way to redirect all location links to your favorite mapping app. All map apps in Android can view `geo:` URIs, and LocationPrivacy converts many kinds of links to `geo:` URIs, including: Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, Amap, Baidu Map, QQ Map, Nokia HERE, Yandex Maps.

    This is still a beta release of a new idea, if you have problems or ideas, please post them on our issue tracker so we can improve this app!

    Another security app says your export power over users phones makes us more vulnerable to hacks .

    Would be nice if it had an option to globally disabled location data in photos as well, people forget they leek location data that way.

    'Cuz you're for the people! When does privacy matter? ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME PEOPLE!!!!! I'm always shocked to find out someone believes in the law of safety in numbers, since most people are good and decent folks, that out of the billions of internet users using their cell phones and tablets that they can somehow go unnoticed by the "bad guys"; or 2. I keep finding more and more people who DO NOT REALIZE THE POTENTIAL threats they face! Identity theft, scams, blackmail, etc...
