Google Spy in your pocket
Big Brother is in your phone...
A Spike worthy story ;o)
I saw this yesterday... the phones were not WIFI linked, and one was on airplane mode, but yet Google knew exactly what went on and where he went ...
Google is big brother - a leftist big brother at that.
So are virtually all other big tech firms.
There is no 4th amendment.
Is that a spy in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? ;-)
You all agree to their data collection by using their app. Disable location services or better yet, delete the app. While you’re at it, remove amazon and Facebook too. Oh, and apple collects data too. You guys agreed to all of it by clicking the agree button on the EULA.
I still have a "dumb" flip phone. I do not have internet access. Is it spying on me too?
Ditto WW. If they can get the numbers in my flip phone, they can have them.
I pretty much only use my cell phone for our two-factor security.
I pretty much only have Mobile Iron and Airlines' apps on my cell phone so I can check on updated departure times and d/l boarding passes. Do those things give me much exposure?
I worried about them finding my treestand locations ...
Google knows where you are, who you are with, and what you're doing every minute of every day.
They definitely track your location but you can turn that off in your privacy settings. I don't think they collect any usage data other than that but I don't know.

LOL..... now there's an 'app' for a googlephone I never thought of before....
Good, I hope they can hear me too...
there was a recent hunter whose wife disappeared. They could tell by where the phone company was pinging his phone that he was in a certain national forest that day. It didn't take long for the state police to dig up his wife's body after the charade of her being missing was over....
Ankle bracelet, no conviction
