unnecessary data collection - tracking
May 18, 2013 Sarah L23

Our phones are wonderful instruments - but tracking is slightly concerning. While these services are marketed as ways to locate a phone, and are great ways to increase safety, etc. - they are also slightly invasive. There are very few people who carry a phone who then actually also possess the knowledge to go mine the data that the phone is generating. However, I'm sure this is possible and I'm sure it is freely available somewhere, somehow (hacked or not). I think we have expanded our capabilities and offerings in ways that exceed a large percentage of user knowledge to where users and subscribers do not fully understand implications of "new features."
