Windows 10 is designed in such a way as to improve your internet experience. As a part of this, the operating system tracks location and keeps a record of it. Well, the purpose of storing the location for limited time is to provide you better searching experiences. For example, if you are traveling at a particular place and staying there for a few days, then Windows 10 will extract location from your device and keep an account of it on daily basis. Based on the collected information of location, the operating system then produces personalized searches via Cortana. So, if you ask Cortana for nearby gas station, then Cortana can instantly provide you nearby locations. This would not have been possible without collecting location information. But from user point of view, you may not always like the idea of your privacy being hampered. So, if you want, you can specify only the apps that you want to let use the Location service, For example, Maps must access your device location otherwise there is no point in using the application
