But that doesn’t mean to switch to your location all the times. Windows 10 stores location history when the device’s location is on and allows apps to access that data with location permission.

Apps which use your location will no longer be able to find you if you turn your location off. However, setting a default location which apps to use as a stand-in is possible manually.
