    iPhone keeps record of everywhere you go

    Security researchers have discovered that Apple's iPhone keeps track of where you go – and saves every detail of it to a secret file on the device which is then copied to the owner's computer when the two are synchronised.

    The file contains the latitude and longitude of the phone's recorded coordinates along with a timestamp, meaning that anyone who stole the phone or the computer could discover details about the owner's movements using a simple program.

    For some phones, there could be almost a year's worth of data stored, as the recording of data seems to have started with Apple's iOS 4 update to the phone's operating system, released in June 2010.

    "Apple has made it possible for almost anybody – a jealous spouse, a private detective – with access to your phone or computer to get detailed information about where you've been," said Pete Warden, one of the researchers.

    Only the iPhone records the user's location in this way, say Warden and Alasdair Allan, the data scientists who discovered the file and are presenting their findings at the Where 2.0 conference in San Francisco on Wednesday. "Alasdair has looked for similar tracking code in [Google's] Android phones and couldn't find any," said Warden. "We haven't come across any instances of other phone manufacturers doing this."

    Simon Davies, director of the pressure group Privacy International, said: "This is a worrying discovery. Location is one of the most sensitive elements in anyone's life – just think where people go in the evening. The existence of that data creates a real threat to privacy. The absence of notice to users or any control option can only stem from an ignorance about privacy at the design stage."

    Re: iPhone keeps record of everywhere you go

    The iphone has so many negative sides (incl. the price of course), I never understood why so many people would buy an iphone. You can't even transfer data from an iphone to a non-iphone and visa versa with the bluetooth and it takes some special knowledge to use the ringtone that you like and not one from the defaults - actually you need a special software, or app. Kinda proves that the masses are easy to manipulate by the media and/or publicity, I would rather buy a Samsung epic 4G (too damn bad that they don't sell it in Europe...) than a crappy and buggy iphone. Just my 2 c.

    well the same with photo tag which the new cameras are equipped, it stamps the location of where the photo was taken, looks like there is an intelligence that wants that data.

    Re: iPhone keeps record of everywhere you go

    Great if they use it for the right uses and they being the intelligence services and law enforcement such as against terror attacks. A mobile phone when switched on sends out and receives a signal every 5-7 seconds 24/7 365 days and thats so the phone company can give you the correct network coverage and turn this into profits. Its always wise to keep a mobile OFF unless you really need it ON!

    So in theory everyone with a mobile phone is potentially being tracked every 5-7 seconds while the phone is on. Law enforcement do have access to anyone phone records without them knowing in most countries via the phone companies and can see where you are. Sure would need a good reason obviously not going to do this with most of us EVER but its a scary thought knowing that a simple device like a phone can yield so much information and like Alex said about the photos revealing locations .. we got a thread on that and ways to side step it http://www.mattersofsize.com/forum/s...-your-location

    Re: iPhone keeps record of everywhere you go

    Free software to see the log that the iphone stores to your computer http://petewarden.github.com/iPhoneTracker/ but dont expect to abuse it, the makers have made sure you cant.
    To make it less useful for snoops, the spatial and temporal accuracy of the data has been artificially reduced. You can only animate week-by-week even though the data is timed to the second, and if you zoom in you’ll see the points are constrained to a grid, so your exact location is not revealed. The underlying database has no such constraints, unfortunately

    Re: iPhone keeps record of everywhere you go

    Honestly, I do not like this feature at all. I mean, it is good if you lost your phone and want to know where it is but when talking about daily life, I think this is too restricting. Imagine being monitored day in and day out.

    I think the intentions are good but this could be exploited by other people who are up to no good.

    What if someone is using a Nokia 3310? This is one of the oldest Nokia phones. Can this type of phone be monitored or tracked?
