© 2013 IEEE. This paper surveys the current research status of location privacy issues in mobile applications. The survey spans five aspects of study: the definition of location privacy, attacks and adversaries, mechanisms to preserve the privacy of locations, location privacy metrics, and the current status of location-based applications. Through this comprehensive review, all the interrelated aspects of location privacy are integrated into a unified framework. Additionally, the current research progress in each area is reviewed individually, and the links between existing academic research and its practical applications are identified. This in-depth analysis of the current state-of-play in location privacy is designed to provide a solid foundation for future studies in the field.
