A mobile device user is concerned about geographic positioning information being included in messages sent
between users on a popular social network platform. The user turns off the functionality in the application, but
wants to ensure the application cannot re-enable the setting without the knowledge of the user. Which of the
following mobile device capabilities should the user disable to achieve the stated goal?
Device access control
Location based services

I get that Geo-tagging contains location information for pictures but those last two sentences indicate that you don’t want the application to be able to re-enable geo-tagging, which could be achieved by disabling location services, so shouldn’t the answer be B?
I think if you disable location services altogether, it disables many other things like maps/gps, location based authentication or apps like “Find my iPhone” etc… Technically you are correct that disabling location services will achieve the stated goal, however you will render useless other apps you may want to continue to use. So… since the question references messages via social networking, I’m pretty sure the answer is geo-tagging (D).
