With the widespread application of location-based services, users 'privacy concerns have become the focus of users' attention. Based on the k-anonymity method and the SpaceTwist algorithm, this paper proposes a method of incremental inquiry user privacy protection. The method preliminarily anonymizes the user's location information and points of interest on the client side, On the anonymous server side, combining the road network environment with the latitude and longitude grid generates the minimum anonymous area of random loop, instead of the user initiating incremental inquiry to the location service provider, Anonymous zones ensure k-anonymity for mobile users and road information to protect user privacy. Security and experimental analysis show that this scheme can improve the effectiveness of user query service while meeting the privacy requirements of users.
