    Your iPhone is secretly tracking you all the time

    Your iPhone has a hidden feature: It tracks and records your location constantly whether you want it to or not. What? You wish it wouldn't do that without your knowledge or consent? Too bad, because there's not much you can do about the tracking feature right now....

    Google does the same thing.

    Everytime you use it it sends information about your location. If you have an Android device connected to the internet, it is sending your location to Google Servers. They don't sell the infor or anything, but they use it for their own uses.

    I'd imagine Blackberries do the exact same thing.

    If you don't like this, stick with a dumbphone.

    I like the fact that you can track your iPhone if its lost or stolen.

    Yeah, that definitely comes in handy. I don't remember the name of the app, but I'd recommend everyone install it now just in case, you never know. There are free tracking apps.

    They exist on Android as well, but I'm holding out on one of them I found (name also escapes me) but it supposedly does everything.

    Definitely a good investment, especially considering the app is free.

    Yeah, if i ever have a phone worth looking after (iPhone etc) then id definitely get the app, being free is a great bonus too.
