Know Where Is The Location Map Cache Files Stored

By now, we are sure taht you are either skeptical, paranoid, or completely freaked out about the news regarding the massive amounts of data being recorded by your device. It really didn’t take long for some developers to start working on a solution to this problem, but as with every problem, the biggest concern is always understanding what you are dealing with. XDA member mopodo has written a very nice app in response to the newly discovered trait. Location Cache Viewer, as its name rightfully implies, will allow you to see all the information that your device is recording about you (whether you allow it or not). This app will provide you with information about your location, phone signal, and even wifi hotspots and connections. As mentioned, this is only the beginning of fighting back to restore our privacy, regardless of whether you agree or not with practices of this sort. Just try the app out for a while and see what you can discover about yourself.

- blocking (chattr)
- delete files
- blocking for all devices with busybox installed
- fix for "no data"

Can I block the cache without root?
Yes, disable "Use wireless networks" under "Location & Security settings"
But you have to live with a slower location lock on maps.
