Freedome and iPhone location services

A quick question - does Freedome allow iPhone location services for apps such as Google Maps?

Also, does it still allow a phone location to be tracked by the emergency services, in the unfortunate event of this being needed?

Freedome does not block location services that use GPS for tracking. Freedome masks your IP address which can be used to track where you are located. If you want to stop GPS location tracking, we recommend you to disable Location Services in the device settings.

Thanks Paivi.  It's the GPS services that I was concerned about Freedome blocking, as these can be used in emergency situations.  If Freedome doesn't block these, then there's no problem.  :)
