The limitation capacity of Smartphone’s has given a gigantic help to the ubiquity of geosocial applications,
which encourage social connection between clients geologically near one another. Nonetheless, today's geosocial applications
raise security concerns because of use suppliers putting away a lot of data about clients (e.g., profile information) and
locations (e.g., user’s gift at a location). We tend to propose Zerosquare and Foursquare, a privacy-friendly location hub that
encourages the event of privacy-preserving geosocial applications. In this paper, we tend to introduce LocX, an exceptional
different that gives altogether enhanced area security while not including instability into inquiry comes about or trusting on
durable suspicions with respect to server security. Our key knowledge is to utilize secure client particular, separation
safeguarding direction changes to any or all area learning imparted to the server.
