Does Foursquare track my location?
Foursquare deals with location, so in order to work, Foursquare needs to know your location. Whenever you open and use/interact with the Foursquare app on your mobile device, we use the location information from your mobile device to tailor the Foursquare experience to your current location (i.e., we’ll show you a list of nearby locations, friends and tips). This information is NOT shared with others.
Also, If you have ‘background location’ turned on, the Foursquare app will, from time to time, tell us about your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the application.
Thanks for your feedback!
