Protecting your location

Your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet has location security and controls built into it. Websites, third-party apps, and preloaded tablet apps that support location-based services could potentially track your location or report your location to a server.

In the security settings on your tablet, you can control exactly which third-party apps have permission to request your tablet's location.To prevent third-party websites or apps from using the GPS location of your tablet, you can block specific third-party applications from using the GPS feature and turn off the option for sharing your location with websites.
