    A key vulnerability of Location Based Services is location privacy. Geo-located patterns can lead to the re-identification of individuals and thus risk their right to a private life. This article presents an overview of the location privacy challenges in indoor and outdoor localization and tracking with various wireless technologies. It discusses users’ perceptions about the privacy of location information and presents state-of-the-art technical solutions to deal with location privacy in modern GNSS localization technologies. A second article, to be published in the November/December issue of Inside GNSS, will focus on similar issues in non-GNSS localization techniques.
