For anyone who would like a little location privacy, you can follow the simple set of steps below to learn how to turn off the location tracking and history settings on your Android phone.

Start by opening your App Drawer and going to your Settings.

Next, you will need to scroll down and tap the “Location” option.

Now, you need to scroll down the screen and tap Google Location Settings.
