Every now and then while opening Facebook on my Android phone I would see my gps status come enabled then disappear not long after. I got annoyed after sometime and did some digging only to find out it wasn’t something I could solve with a simple checkbox selection (from within the fb app or my android settings).
Annoyed… I got tasker (android app) and setup a disable gps task anytime fb is open.
Notes: For gps control I needed to also obtain apps Secure Settings and BusyBox. My phone is r00t3d.
