Apple's iOS 13 release is just around the corner with a big focus on privacy, which was one of the highlights of WWDC 2019 earlier this year. Users will then have the choice to select either'always allow' or'let once' for finding sharing with the third party program.


The big picture: Facebook has published a detailed look at how its app funnels and uses background location data from your smartphone.

Facebook goes on to say that it will "continue to make it easier for you to control how and when you share your location". The home screen has been slightly changed so you can see more apps and pin widgets to it.

"You can control whether your device shares precise location information with Facebook via Location Services, a setting on your phone or tablet", Facebook said in its blog post.
