    Samsung experience 9.0

    Location services turns on constantly, sometimes without asking, sometimes it asks, I say 'Disagree', it turns on anyway.

    Is this Google, Samsung or Android?

    How do I stop it?

    If Samsung, will jailbreaking stop it?

    Cheers

    Hi, you mean the toggle in notifications panel for location turns on after switching off?

    FYI, "jailbreaking" is an iOS term. "Rooting" is the term you're looking for.

    Does this happen in Safe Mode as well? https://safemodewiki.com/how-to-turn...ung-galaxy-a3/

    That message is only about improving location accuracy (i.e., turning on wi-fi and Bluetooth scanning). Just to be sure, you're looking at the Settings>Location​ menu and seeing the toggle there turning on even after you turn it off?

    This is just the message that occasionally appears when location is turned on in the notification area

    If you want location disabled , can purchase a app called Package Disabler Pro

    One thing to try is to look in the system settings for a permissions overview menu and see which apps have Location permission. You could then try turning off Location permission for apps one by one.
