I read this very interesting NYT article and thought that I should share it with my readership.
Obviously, I have many apps on my phone that use my location to offer me better, more accurate services. Indeed, some apps rely solely on tracking my location and sharing it with others. And for me, that’s really not a problem: the benefits far outweigh any potential negatives.
If I was in a job where that sort of information could compromise my security, then yes, I would be concerned.
But if anyone can weaponise my weekly visit to Pick n Pay by hacking into the logs of my location pings, then good luck to them.
