How to Disable Location Tracking for a Particular App on Android

If you want to disable location tracking entirely for your Android device, then check this guide where I’ve talked about it in detail.

If you want to disable location tracking for a particular Android app, then follow the below steps (in this instance, I’m using Android Pie):

  1. Open Settings app.

  2. Tap Security & location > Location > App-level permissions.

  3. Find the app for which you want to turn off location tracking. In our instance, it is Chrome.

    Chrome app with the location permission turned on
    • Save

  4. Tap that app. If you see the confirmation popup, tap “Deny Anyway” in it.

    Deny Anyway option
    • Save

That’s it. All done.

Chrome app with the location permission turned off
  • Save

In case, if you want to turn on location tracking for the app in the future, open the “App-level permissions,” find the app, and then hit it.
