    even though I have my settings in google set to never use my device's location, every time I go to google I see my GPS icon come on for a couple seconds... sneaky bastards! :eek:

    Open your browser, go to settings > website settings.
    Under there is there an icon that indicates that Google has GPS access?

    Give into the eye. Big brother is always watching. Nothing has been seen, it was all a lie.
