Turn On/Off Google Location Accuracy

Google's location accuracy on the realme smartphone uses various sources, such as radio networks, Wi-Fi networks and other sensors, to determine the most accurate GPS positioning possible.
Google also collects anonymous location data to improve the location determination.

Note: If the function is disabled, this may have an effect on the location determination in "Maps" and for "Find My Device", since only the internal GPS of the device is used.
