How to Enable Google Location Reporting in Android

Enabling Google location reporting in your Android device allows Google to identify your location, and update your Google Maps, make adjustments to your device’s date and time as per your region, etc.

In addition to this, with the help of the Google location reporting, Google is able to display the contents depending upon your current location. The appropriate contents that Google may display may include relevant advertisements, promotional information, etc.

    ■Once the Google window comes up, under the PRIVACY section, tap Location.

    ■On the opened Location interface, from the top-right corner, ensure that the Location toggle button is set to ON.
    ■Under the LOCATION SERVICES section on the same window, tap the Google Location Reporting option.

    ■On the Google Location Reporting interface, under your email address section, tap Location Reporting.

    ■Finally, on the next interface, tap to set the Location Reporting toggle button ON in order to enable the Google location reporting on your device.
