Remove iStumbler from Location Services list in Security & Privacy Preferences

If you have uninstalled iStumbler you may still see it listed the table of apps which are allowed to access your location. You can view this list in:

System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Location Services

If you authorized iStumbler to use Location Services there will be an entry in the list, Apple does not provide a UI for removing it, so you will need to open Terminal.app and enter the following commands very, very carefully:

% sudo -s
# killall locationd && rm /var/db/locationd/clients.plist
# exit

Once completed you may need to Enable and Disable Location Services in Prefs for the entries to be completely removed.

You may also want to clean up the Application Support folder:

~/Library/Application Support/iStumbler

… Logs:

~/Library/Logs/iStumbler

… DiagnosticReports

~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/net.istumbler.*

and the preferences:

~/Library/Preferences/net.istumbler.plist
