IPhone Tracks Everywhere You Go


"IPhone Tracks Everywhere You Go"

Looks like security researchers in England found this out about IPhone, I wouldn't doubt if it applies to others. I am probably the last person around here who doesn't own a cell phone, I owned a temporary one for a very short time-a Pay as You Go one, that just wanted too many minutes bought per month. More and more of the technology out there is being used for dubious things.


Security researchers have discovered that Apple's iPhone keeps track of where you go – and saves every detail of it to a secret file on the device which is then copied to the owner's computer when the two are synchronised.

The file contains the latitude and longitude of the phone's recorded coordinates along with a timestamp, meaning that anyone who stole the phone or the computer could discover details about the owner's movements using a simple
program.

I'm glad I don't know. Don't plan to buy one either.
