Do you value your privacy? Of course you do! Then why do you provide 24 hour-a-day tracking of your whereabouts to police, government agents, relatives, hackers, potential kidnappers, child molesters, or to would-be burglars who want to make sure you are not at home?
NOTE: I am guessing your children might be near you. Another situation is that your older child(ren) might have his or her own cell phone and he or she can be easily tracked. That’s a good thing for a concerned parent to be able to see where the child is at all times but not so good when you realize hackers and other evil-doers will also be able to see the same thing at any time.
The police used a location tracking Android app to find an arsonist this last week. It’s a rather entertaining story. The arsonist and his son used the Life360 app to track each other’s whereabouts and the police used that data to prove the arsonist was at the fire when it started. On the one hand, it’s a unique story. However, it’s also a little disconcerting that a location tracking app just gives up its privacy data like that. In any case, you can read the whole story at http://bit.ly/3bHzPZ3.
