    I have installed Facebook Messenger on my Android phone and the app is working perfectly well. But, I don’t want the app to share my location. How can we set the app in such a way?

    Launch the Facebook Messenger app and hit the menu icon. This will show up a menu on the screen from which locate the ‘Settings’ option. Tap on that option until a list of options appears on the screen. Locate ‘Location Services’ option from that list after that. Then, make a single tap on it for viewing the location services settings. You can then find a box next to the option which can enable location services. Tap on that box until a check mark appears inside it.
