Location sharing in Google+ Web App
What does Google+ do with my location?
The first time you use the app, you’ll be asked to confirm that you’re happy to share your location with Google+.
There are a few features of the Google+ mobile app that make use of your location:
If you visit this filter in the stream, we make use of your location to show you posts shared with you from people near your current location. If you disable location features on your phone, you will not see any information in this filter.
Check in or post with location:
You can choose to share your location with specific circles when you attach your location to a post, or check in to a place.
Geo location information from photos:
If you want to share the geo location data from your photos when you upload albums to Google+, you can enable the “Show geo location information from photos in newly uploaded albums” setting on Google+ for your computer. This setting is disabled by default. Learn more about data stored in photos .
Apple requires location services to be enabled for an application to access the photos on the device’s camera roll. So, you have to have location services turned on to use Instant Upload. Enable location services in your device settings, under Location services > Google+.
Remove your location before your post
To remove your location before you post something, touch the X or select Post without location from the list of nearby locations. After you remove your location, the app remembers your preference and doesn’t include your location in the next post unless you decide to add it again. Learn about your default posting settings.
Disable all mobile location services
Opt-out of the Location Services on your phone to disable the location features in the Google+ mobile app.
Go to your phone’s Settings menu and select Location.
The location features in the Google+ app determine your location using available data sources, which may include GPS, WiFi (wireless network), or cell ID (cell tower) signals.
