The limitation capacity of Smartphone’s has given a gigantic help to the ubiquity of geosocial applications, which encourage social connection between clients geologically near one another. Nonetheless, today's geosocial applications raise security concerns because of use suppliers putting away a lot of data about clients (e.g., profile information) and locations (e.g., user’s gift at a location). We tend to propose Zerosquare and Foursquare, a privacy-friendly location hub that encourages the event of privacy-preserving geosocial applications. In this paper, we tend to introduce LocX, an exceptional different that gives altogether enhanced area security while not including instability into inquiry comes about or trusting on durable suspicions with respect to server security. Our key knowledge is to utilize secure client particular, separation safeguarding direction changes to any or all area learning imparted to the server.
