+Note that the privacy settings in GNOME settings isn't respected by geoclue
+for applications that are not sandboxed (running in flatpak), so it will
+provide location information to any application that asks it, and will not
+show any applications BUT ones run via flatpak
+
+This is working as intended by geoclue upstream[1] and applications that
+are not sandboxed have other methods of acquiring information provided
+by geoclue
+
+GNOME settings also tracks what they want to do with their privacy panel
+in regards to the problem above here[2]
