On OnePlus phone to my surprise, all my location was automatically sent to Google Timeline which I don't remember I actually agreed on such thing.

At what point it was enabled and how do I disable such option completely on the phone?

I'm aware that I can Pause Location History online at Google Timeline, but I'm looking for option on the phone, not to pause online, but to disable it completely for privacy reasons.

  • Go to Settings, then Location.
  • Find Google Location Settings and individually switch off both Location Reporting and Location History.
  • Underneath Location History, select “Delete Location History” to wipe clean the cache of locations.
  • Repeat the steps for every Google account you have registered.

Note that disabling all location-finding features will throw a monkey wrench into the functioning of some apps, so it’s wise to carefully consider which you want to strip of location services
