  • Patent number: 10349204
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems, software, and computer implemented methods for augmenting ping timing for mobile devices based on contextual analysis of a current data exchange based on historical data exchange data. One example system includes operations such as receiving information related to a current data exchange associated with a particular user profile. The current data exchange can be associated with a particular location, and each user profile can be associated with at least one data exchange pattern, where the data exchange pattern identifies a locational and a data exchange history of the user profile. The current data exchange is compared to a data exchange pattern of the particular user profile. If the current data exchange does not correspond, a request for the user's current location is transmitted to an associated user device. If the current data exchange does correspond, the current data exchange is associated with the particular location.
