Smartphone Tracking - What, Why, And How To Disable It

You may be aware that your Apple or Android smartphone can track your physical movements. You may not be quite so aware of how much information is actually recorded and that the devices will do this by default unless you specifically tell them NOT to.


Apple and Google will tell you that this functionality allows them to offer personalized services to you, and while that may be true, it's still a bit creepy that someone other than your family knows all your comings and goings throughout the day.

Knowledge is power, so take a look at the NBC News video below; it gives a clear explanation of the situation, and very clear directions on how to turn the feature off if you desire. Welcome to the new privacy paradigm.
