Location, Permissions, and Opting Out

Dictionary.com Helpdesk -

Please note:
- Knowing our users’ location allows us to enhance certain features, such as our mapping capability, which allows users to see popular lookups from others nearby
- Other permissions are tied to features such as the ability to look up words from other apps or while offline

The "Tracking" or Location function has been attached to the "Trends" section of the app, where you can see recent words or search trends for people who are near your current location. To disable this function or opt out,  you can adjust your Location settings for any iPhone app by going into your iPhone Settings, choosing "Location Services" then setting the permissions for each app with a Location function.

If you'd like more information you can view the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy here.

To see more information on the features in the apps you can find them here.
