    Why does Wayalife App need my location?

    I'm far from a computer/phone wiz but I'm always puzzled why so many apps require my location. Why does Wayalife want to know where I am? What do you do with this information?

    Can't you turn it off? I have it turned off on my Galaxy s7.

    The reason why alot of larger apps enable that permission is to interface to the in-app advertisements so that they can localize which ones to show you. As suggested, some phones can selectively "allow access" but turn off services to individual apps.

    Though personally, I like Krystian's reasoning better.

    We will sell your location info to the Chinese so they can send out more flyers with info about all the Jeep parts they're making. You'll be fine, just go with it.

    It's so Eddie & Cindy can pop in, unannounced, at your house.

    And I was thinking so Eddie and Cindy would have a warning if anyone got too close
