Location Privacy Settings on Windows
In this tutorial, we will learn Windows system settings related to Location Privacy Settings. Windows can use the device capabilities to determine the geographic location and to improve its applications and services.
Windows Location service will use a combination of technologies like Global Positioning Service (GPS), Cell phone towers, nearby Wireless Access Points, and the device IP address to determine the device’s location.
If you have enabled the device location setting, the device sends de-identified location information such as wireless access point information, cellular tower information, and GPS location to Microsoft after removing any data identifying the person or device.
