Now a days, to know the users location information on devices having GPS facility. When user’s location is provided to LBS, it is possible to user to know all location dependent information like location of friends or Nearest Restaurant, whether or traffic conditions. The massive use of mobile devices pave the way for the creation of wireless networks that can be used to exchange information based on locations. When the exchange of location information is done amongst entrusted parties, the privacy of the user could be in harmful. Existing protocol doesn’t work on many different mobile devices and another issue is that, Location Server (LS) should provide misleading data to user.. Proposed solution can be implemented on a desktop PCs, laptops and mobile phones to assess the efficiency of implemented protocol.
