    If you are using samsung phones. Samsung find my phone has an option that sends your last location whenever phones battery reach a certain level. I assume this is the problem.

    If you are freaked out because you are getting spied on. You shouldn't be because it is legal in many laws including the US. And they don't need the gps to know where you are rn. They can actually know as long as you are connected to your network provider. Since your phone picks the signal from a certain tower beside you. The tower sends back to the network provider that your phone is asking for signal. Your phone has a fixed number code aka name that is linked to you when you bought it and your sim card is the same linked to you when you bought it. Also wifi does the same **** unless you have covered it with vpn.

    In conclusion, if you are freaked out about your privacy either join a top hacking computer school or throw that smartphone and get a Nokia black and white... maybe China might make some incognito phones in the future as well... they wont gain anything from that though.

    Oh and switching all location stuff off wont help it... because well... its find my phone... it is supposed to do so if you lost or got stolen...

    Now that I remember it has become more repetitive with updates to me. I assume it is part of the companies strategy to break down old phones so that people would buy new ones. Like make old phones slower and have less juice. [language redacted by Mod] samsung.

    I like a Location Service that knows what it wants.

    But some other app may request location without bothering you with turning it on - so it gets turned on seemingly "by itself". It's not a bug with the phone, or a plot by the manufacturer, it's bad development by the app developer.

    If you want to stop this, download Shizuku and AppOps. It can't deny the Wifi Calling's (IMS Service) location permission, but it can "ignore" it (as good as deny). No root required but Shizuku app can't be started from phone without root, so abd shell has to be used (Platform Tools). With this you can control any and all permissions on your phone.

    Further reading and investigating makes it look clear to me that it's Google Play. So no other Active users are experiencing this?
    In my case, same thing happening with my wi-fi icon!
