    Hi. You need to go into the settings area for your phone and disable the permission for location services specific to that app. So it would be "SETTINGS/APPS/SNAPCHAT/PERMISSIONS/LOCATION" or something to that effect. Knowing the type of phone or OS version may help a bit.
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    You need to go into ghost mode. In the app, tap your bitmoji/profile pic, tap the cog (settings) top right, under Who Can, tap on See My Location

    Or just stop using the app altogether

    DWL, Thatís not always a solution. Itís an easy setting to make within the app.

    There are also third party firewall and permission apps that may help. Some examples below.
