    Google Lattitude

    With one of the recent Google Maps updates, it automatically installed Latitude. I saw it in my apps drawer and clicked on it to see what it was. It asked for my Google account and I filled it in. After messing with it and figuring out what it was, I turned on the Hide your location option and turned it off. I get an email today saying that I've been sharing my location. I get home and again open up latitude and hide my location. I immediately open it back up and it's showing my location.

    I have no use for this app. I don't want it but if I uninstall it, it uninstalls the Maps update as well. There is no option in the app to log out of my google account. I can't get it to turn off my location. I even went to my google account settings on my computer and it doesn't give me the option to delete my Latitude account.

    How do I get out of this? I don't want it. I can't uninstall it and can't even log out. I can't turn off the share location setting. This is ridiculous.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    if u can't log out or uninstall it, try just hiding your status/location in the settings tab.

    I wish I could. I hide the location and it immediately goes back to share location. I can find no option to log out and I can't uninstall.

    Go to settings, applications, manage apps. Find Latitude. If thats not there, choose maps. Choose Force Stop, then Clear Data and Restore Defaults. That should log you out.

    You can log out. In Latitude go to menu, privacy, turn off Latitude.

    I haven't figured out what it is for yet???

    I do all that except for the restore defaults because it is greyed out. I then open Latitude and it says "Joining Latitude" then pulls up my location. I go to privacy settings and it has set itself on "detect location" again. I set it to "hide location" and click "turn off latitude".

    I did all that yesterday and today I get an email telling me I am broadcasting my location. If I go back into Latitude, the settings are back to "Detect location".

    Did you actually try uninstalling / reinstalling Maps (vs. just knowing it would uninstall and didn't try it)? I don't have any advice other than that. I like Latitude since I have other friends using it. It only shares your location with people you allow, but I agree that you should be able to disable it if you want.
    Please do not text, place or answer calls while driving. Be responsible.

    Let me Google that for you

    I did uninstall. It just logs back in automatically once I update again.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    When viewing latitude it will always show you your location. Turning on the hide me feature you are not allowing others to view your location.
