You can turn off all location tracking on your Samsung Galaxy S10, so that no apps can use information from its GPS receiver.

It's also possible to control permission for location tracking on an app-by-app basis, so only the apps you want to know your location have access.

Location - Feature - Biometrics - Security - Section

You can control the location tracking feature in the Biometrics and security section of the Settings app on your Galaxy S10.

Phone - GPS - Receiver - Pinpoints - Phone

Your phone's GPS receiver pinpoints your phone anywhere on earth to an accuracy of about 16 feet. That makes it possible to get turn-by-turn directions using an app like Google Maps, but it enables all sorts of other apps to know where you are as well.

That can be convenient — or an infringement of your privacy. You can choose which apps get to know your location, or, if you'd rather disable all location tracking on your phone at once, you can simply turn the location feature off entirely.
