How to turn off geolocation on BB Playbook?

Hi,


Please, can anyone tell me how to turn off geolocation on BB Playbook?
It looks like it's on by default since the last OS update. But I may be wrong.
I read on this forum you can't turn off the GPS sensor.
That's OK as long as I can disable it's geolocation function on the Play Book.

Thank you, Walt.

It's defined on a per application level, not system level. See Security/Application permissions in system settings...

Thank you bonematrix,

So, there is no general on/off.
