Android phones and tablets have apparently been gathering data about a user’s location and sending it back to Google, even when location settings have been disabled.

Google have stated that this search helps to improve the speed and performance of message delivery, but we’re not too sure. Surely it should be your choice to opt out?
Google, you know too much.
