    Hey guys, I found that in my OnePlus 7T, it's the default weather app that was accessing the location constantly, I changed the permission to allow only while using the app in the permission manager.

    goto setting > apps & notifications > app permissions > location > use the context menu to show system apps and change permission.

    restart the phone once and the issue is gone.

    P.S : I advise you go through all the system apps using location all the time and tweak as required for better security and battery life.

    cheers

    Ya it is but you can try changing it from settings. Usually when we install new apps they ask for permissions, so be careful while giving those permissions.

    Please search before posting thread. There are already many threads related to this topic.

    One or more than one of your app is using location in the background. Just restart the device.

    Probably Scout or any other app is using location in the background. Just reboot the device, will work for you.

    And search before posting new threads.
