How is the privacy of location data and user consent handled in popular apps?

With SIMPORT, we want to enable users to manage their own location information on their mobile devices. In order to find out where to start, it is first necessary to determine what the status quo looks like for mobile applications. Specifically, the questions arise as to how current apps deal with the data protection of location data and the consent of users to use it.
