Wich free app do you use for gps that respect pricacy and do not track you?

I tested magic earth and in the 1st simulation was in a forbidden road - not precised.

    I use Apple Maps. In theory, it’s not tracking me. I guess I have no way to prove that, but at least they’re on the record saying they anonymize the data from it and don’t correlate routes to people.

    Edit: here is some more info, took a second to find the link.

      Maybe the app doesn’t but your phone does lol. Literally everything you do whether it’s Apple or Android.

        I think you’ll have that problem no matter what app you’re using. Your phone keeps a log of your location and everything you do on it, generally for at least the past month. Apple phones encrypt it and keep it on the phone and I don’t use an Andriod phone so I don’t know what they do, but I imagine it’s something similar. The location logs are there for apps to use and the OS to reference and keep track of apps requesting locations and where they’ve done so – probably some debug uses too. The other logs are just your standard debug logs and usage logs.
