  • You may want to explain to them why this is the case. There are a lot of reasons google wouldnt have your location:

    1. You are an iPhone user without any Google apps

    2. You are a custom ROM user and have specifically gone out of your way to not install Google Play Services or any Google apps (this is me!)

    3. You are a PinePhone or Librem 5 user and are using Arch (btw) or another distro like Phosh

    4. You don’t have a mobile phone and communicate completely via desktop/laptop and/or landline phone

    5. You genuinely think Google doesn’t harvest your location 8 ways to sunday on stock Android (in which case you are factually and completely wrong - opt-out toggles should be treated as illusory on locked down proprietary systems like Google Play Services).
