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.
