Recently in my android smartphone, while toggling GPS the notification popping up "in.android.location.PROVIDERS_CHANGED".

Why this is happening recently & not before and how to disable it?

  • This is caused by some app that uses your location. What apps have you installed recently? – Dan Hulme Apr 10 '18 at 10:51
  • Thanks for your reply, recently i have not installed any application but certain application received updates from google play. I also wants to know that, Is it vulnerable safety wise as this pop up is coming while GPS toggling? – newenthusiasts Apr 10 '18 at 11:03
  • No, it's probably a debugging message that the app developer left in by accident. It does tell you that that app is finding out when you turn GPS on or off - if you weren't expecting the app to use your location, you should think about revoking its permission. – Dan Hulme Apr 10 '18 at 11:06
  • Oh ok! Is there a way to find out which application is popping up that message? – newenthusiasts Apr 10 '18 at 11:09

There are some aaps which gives debug msg for location, as in my case one assistan app. As soon as i uninstalled the app that msgs disapeared.
