Definition Edit

Location services

map a GPS-acquired location to the corresponding businesses or other entities close to that location.[1]

Overview Edit

"Location services are heavily used by social media, navigation, web browsers, and other mobile-centric applications. In terms of organization security and personal privacy, mobile devices with location services enabled are at increased risk of targeted attacks because it is easier for potential attackers to determine where the user and the mobile device are, and to correlate that information with other sources about who the user associates with and the kinds of activities they perform in particular locations."[2]
