iPhone users, if you haven’t done so recently go to your location services and check up on what apps have permission to track your location. I know I was surprised at how many apps were tracking my location that definitely didn’t need to.
Then I went to the bottom of that menu and clicked “System Services”
When I opened that menu, ALL of these were on. I shut off all the ones that I saw as completely unnecessary. After I took the screenshots I also turned on “Status Bar Icon” so it will give me the little icon by my battery indicator whenever these System Services are tracking my location.
That’s right, it’s off by default. As in, your operating system is tracking your location without notifying you.
Apple and Google have both said they will use location data for contact tracing. They also said they’re going to judge proximity to other people using Bluetooth, so turn that off when you aren’t using it.
