Our phones are complex devices that leak our location in countless ways.
We explain 3 essential settings for protecting your location data:
– Airplane Mode
– Location Services
We dive into how they work and try to demystify location tracking, hopefully leaving you with a better understanding of how to use these tools in your privacy toolbox.

07:58 Location Services

Our phone can be both an ally and inadvertent foe in the modern digital landscape. There are many other settings you can toggle, depending on your apps and operating system, to help decrease how much location data you reveal, and we’ll go through these in another video. This can all go a long way to helping you fortify your digital life.
