At present there are many geo social applications which are based on large extent, so people are more uncertainty concerning the security of location and respective data stored at that location. But the location privacy provided is not enough. In this paper, we are using LocX, which is a new approach for improving location privacy without adding ambiguity or relying on strong assumptions. User stores encrypted data on the server by using transformations. When user allows recommender then they can access the user’s location and data. LocX provides more privacy for today’s mobile devices.

4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
