App keeps using location services without permission


Recommended Posts

Minor gripe, but I work in software engineering and think this is a bit naughty.

I have the MyToyota App set to only use location services while using the app. However, even when I have finished using the app, location services continue to be used and the only way I can turn off the location service is by physically force closing the app (e.g. swipe up to close it fully).

This is on iPhone. No other app behaves like this - when you close the app, location services switch off - it's naughty because my phone is a few years old and doesn't have the best Battery, and things like this drain Battery faster.

I noticed this too after a recent update. If you set the permission to "only when using app" it still keeps using location services in the background, even if you are not using any location dependent functions. I have now denied the app any access to location services. Hopefully this is just a bug rather than Toyota tracking us to harvest extra telemetry data.
