Abstract: With the increasing usage of smart phones and tablets, privacy has become a concern for many people. While the GPS enabled handheld devices has been popular, the use of location-based systems has posed a privacy issue to the users. The use of location-based services, such as Google Maps, and social media for example, Facebook, Instagram which allow users to tag their current locations, have allowed attackers to track and collect information on the individuals. This project aims to understand the concept of Geo-indistinguishability, a novel and formal notion proposed in recent years to help to preserve the privacy of individuals using a location-based service, Google Maps. Further discussions on the concept of Geo-indistinguishability, and implementation of this concept into a physical form, such as an android application, to show how the concept works on a location-based service, will be discussed in this report.
