Abstract: Context-awareness can be considered as one of the biggest advantage of smart mobile devices as it provides advanced features for developers revolutionizing user interaction and making users more engaged to the applications. Perhaps, the most important factor is location awareness as applications can refine their results according to users’ whereabouts. Nonetheless, users’ location is a very sensitive attribute as it can disclose a lot of personal information about them. To address such issues, mobile operating systems require users to grant specific permissions to the applications. This work studies a relatively new feature of Android, namely Wi-Fi P2P, illustrating that the location of the user can be easily disclosed, without using location permissions even in the recent version of Android.
