The increase in location-based applications makes protecting personal location information a major challenge. Users must be able to control their location privacy but should be able to do so without constant intervention--that is, they should be freed from having to click "ok" whenever an application requests access to their location information. The article describes a system that lets users automate control of their location information, thereby minimizing the extent to which the system intrudes on their lives.

Index Terms:
Location-Based Applications, location privacy, LocServ
