android – SecurityException when calling getLastKnownLocation

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

We’ve been getting reports of crashes on some devices when a user opens an Activity that calls the location manager’s getLastKnownLocation method. We’ve requested all the required permissions in our application manifest:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />

Here is the stack trace:

Here is the relevant method from LocationUtils:

public static Location getLastKnownLocation(Context context) {
    if (context != null) {
        LocationManager lm = (LocationManager) context.getSystemService(
                Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);

        // Get our last known location
        Location location = lm.getLastKnownLocation(
                LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER);
        if (location == null) {
            location = lm.getLastKnownLocation(
                    LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);
        }
        return location;
    }
    return null;
}

We’ve been unable to reproduce this issue on any device we have on hand. Has anyone encountered this problem before?

How to&Answers:

seem to me like you could prevent it by using require feature

Answer:

Check this out. Here I have implemented methods for find last known gps and last known network locations.
