The only Google app I have so far tolerated on my iPhone is Google Translate. It was just recently updated so it now comes with Apple’s mandated privacy label information.
Google Translate tells me part of the data linked to me that it’s using for “analytics” is my coarse location data. I don’t see any need for that app to know where I am so I decided to head over to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and set Google Translate’s access to ‘never’. So much for my plan. As I end up scrolling through my list of 3rd party apps in the Locations Services list I realize that Google Translate does not show up in there.
So what am I not understanding about that privacy label? Is Google Translate phoning home my whereabouts or not? And if so, why doesn’t iOS let me turn that off?
