Should You Care that Your iPhone is Tracking You?

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Two computer programmers presented findings showing that your iPhone and iPad is recording your locations in a hidden file. Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center explains how the devices track your location and why this is a breach of privacy. The issue, he says, is partially the fact that you are being tracked, but also that the file is being saved. This points to a larger privacy problem whereby users don't have a choice as to whether they can be tracked.
