"We're seeing a noticeable decrease of already scarce high-quality GPS data as well as an increase in the use of poor-quality IP data."

Mobile phone owners are increasingly reluctant to share their location data, which is having a significant impact on advertisers trying to plan digital media campaigns, according to research by Location Sciences PLC (LON:LSAI).

The AIM-listed group’s State of Privacy and Location Marketing report found over two-thirds (68%) of Apple iOS 13 users opted out of always-on location data affecting indicators such as audience quality, attribution and footfall confidence and multi-touch attribution.

There was also a 24% drop in foreground location data sharing observed during the study, which has a direct impact on media quality and performance. 

Jason Smith, Location Sciences’ chief business officer for the US, said: "Operating system privacy updates are fantastic for consumers, but they have a significant impact on the quality and availability of location data used within marketing.

"We're seeing a noticeable decrease of already scarce high-quality GPS data as well as an increase in the use of poor-quality IP data.

“This is driving a significant shift in media delivery across planning, measurement, audience development, and attribution."

Smith advises marketers regularly to audit privacy regulation technology to ensure location data is credible; check for increased use of IP and to be prepared to pay more for location marketing as users demand improved experiences in return for giving access to their data.
