    The Pop Says

    Stop "GPS" location provider requires

    It constantly pops up on my screen and goes away.

    How do I resolve this.

    I'm think while I'm typing forgive me if I circle around on something...

    Perhaps you can find the app making the request. Since you have a Samsung, as I do, we should have similar menus. Open Settings and use the search. Type location in the search and look for Recent Location Requests the next time it happens. I get a short list of 5 apps, your list may vary, but inspect those apps. Do they all make sense? Is there any of them that don't?

    From that same search, look at Location, under which will say Improve Accuracy. Check if you have both WiFi Scanning and Bluetooth Scanning enabled? This would be "fine" location, as it is drawing from every available source possible. I just saw that Recent requests shows up under this heading. Anyway, if you're getting a message like that I would assume that it would be from one of those apps.

    Tell us what you find.
