    This is a location tracker, so it will use GPS to find out exactly where you are. It can help you in many ways. If you're using a map, you'll be able to see your location and it can give you directions to your destination. It also provides a lot of other important functions such as automatically updating social media. You can read the privacy statement in regards to this if you wish.

    We have a Location Request indicator, you'll see this icon whenever an app requests your location
    .
    Geofence monitoring will not make the icon show up. If you don't want the icon to appear, just uncheck the box next to Show Icon. A Geofence is a boundary around a place of interest to you. Location services can monitor geofences to tell your apps when you're entering or leaving them. This phone is currently not tracking geofences.
