Facebook published a blog post on the use of location data in iOS 13

Facebook has released a new blog post that describes in detail how iOS 13 affects its access to data on the location of the user, confirming at the same time that users have “control” of its position settings.

As shown in detail in June, iOS 13 makes several changes to the location data for third party apps. iOS 13 presents popup notifications when an app uses the background location. The notification also shows a map of the data on the position detected by a specific app.

From there, users can customize their preferences of location for a mobile app, ranging from “always allow” to “allow once“.

Facebook explains in its blog post that before the release of iOS 13, will “continue to streamline” users ' control over their location settings. The company also notes, however, that it is still able to “understand” the position of a user based on check-in, information on Internet connectivity and others:

You control who sees your location on Facebook. You can check if your device shares precise location information with Facebook via the location services setting on your phone or tablet.

We could still understand your position using things like check-in, events, and information about your Internet connection.

As noted by CNBC, the purpose of the blog post is to get out, apparently in advance of any backlash that may hit users who know more about the app Facebook is using their position. For example, once users of Facebook will see the pop-up that shows how the app uses a precise location in the background, you probably want more details on why.

The blog post of Facebook seems to attempt to answer some of the questions that users may have. The company, however, you are not moving from the belief that “Facebook is better with the position.“
