Stop Android location settings

When you use your Android smartphone for the first time, you’ll be asked about location services and whether you want to turn them on.

What you might not know is that there are other options for location services with Android that can affect your device’s security.

Like its desktop equivalent, mobile ransomware needs to be installed on your device before it can do damage.
