    And now it is not working at all.
    Prior to today, when the feature would not work, I could edit my trusted place, or delete it and set it up again, and it would continue to work for most of the day. I've tried editing, and deleting-setting back up, but it does NOT work for me now.
    I'll see if a reboot helps.


    EDIT 5 minutes later.
    Reboot alone did not help, but then afterwards I edited the Trusted Place location, and it began to work again.

    Editing the Trusted Location is what used to always do the trick when this issue was present back around 2014.

    I should have a new work phone in the next few days and I'm going to try Trusted Location when I set it up (if the Mobile Iron security rules allow it) and see how it works for me. I have too many Bluetooth devices setup as Trusted Devices on my personal phone to test Trusted Location.

    sounds like you cannot trust the trusted location feature anymore. It is not worth it if you have to keep setting it.

    It had some issues back around 2014, but has worked pretty good since. Can't just give up on it completely, some kind of update (s) fixed it once before.

    What is frustrating is that the trusted location feature has worked flawlessly since Sept., then it took a dump. I don't recall any updates right before it quit working either, other than app updates.

    I'm wondering if something as simple as an update to Google Maps can have anything to do with it? Idk how much that effects your overall location info, but it's the only APP update I can think of that would make any sense outside of security patches or OS updates.

    security updates also have some bug fixes. so something there could have also affected location.

    True, but he's got a Samsung phone. He's not getting regular security patches...

    Then they're doing better than they used to. I guess my wife's S7 isn't getting them regularly because of its age...?
