• Apple Location Tracking in iPhone and iPad Gains Great Concern

    Posted on April 22nd, 2011 David Brooks No comments

    On Wednesday, there were posts that detailed a file in Apple iPhones and iPads unknown to the vast majority of its users that stored a long list of their time-stamped locations, sometimes with alarming detail. This has raised great concern and a vast criticism from users. Besides, people also want to know whether other smart phones and tablets like Google Android OS phones and tablets have the same location tracking system as Apple. The lawmakers now have stepped into this issue for answers from Apple.

    Apple Location Tracking

    Much of the concern about the iPhone and iPad location tracking stems from the fact the computers are logging users’ physical coordinates without users knowing it — and that the information is then stored in an unencrypted form that would be easy for a hacker or a suspicious spouse or a law enforcement officer to find without a warrant. “We’re not sure why Apple is gathering this data, but it’s clearly intentional, as the database is being restored across backups, and even device migrations,” from a blogger.

    Some have argued that the Apple iPhone and iPad location tracking system has brought benefit to people, rather than harm. The most obviously thing is that the iPhone and iPad location tracking has provided clues for police.

    Several members of Congress in Cupertino have written to Apple to answer questions about the issue. Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., questioned it may be illegal to use users’ personal location information for business purpose without noticing users. “Collecting, storing and disclosing a consumer’s location for commercial purposes without their express permission is unacceptable and would violate current law.”

    We have to admit that tracking is in fact normal for mobile phone. The conflict of this practice lies who owns the personal location information, what the owners have done and want to do with the users’ personal location information.
