That's what I was thinking, if it's on by default a tech savvy missus will wonder why you've gone to the trouble of turning it off or clearing it. I've just had to clear mine and switch it off, no choice.



If you need an excuse for turning location services off, just tell her you've done it to prolong battery life  :hi:

cheers for the heads up, the photos you take also do a gps tag if I remember correctly

possibly, like me, you have an iphone4? Frequent locations is missing on iphone 4 for some reason.

Yes I have a 4.funnily enough about to upgrade. Might now not get a 4s or 5. Sneaky cunts.

It is sneaky, even if a person isn't up to 'no good'- I still wouldn't want a tracking device on a phone.

The iphone 4 still has tracking software built in.

you should be using a Samsung phone pete judging from your profile pic!!!!  :lol:

Android does this too, by default. If you're using an Android device, you should hit Settings->Location access->Access to my location switched OFF

Thanks for the info Skittish.  I had no idea about this "feature" and have now switched it off.

yes, an iphone4 on ios7 has tracking software, but the information is only easily accessible by Apple. Otherwise, it would take a very, very, tech savvy other half to get the info.  I've actually learned a few important things with regard to iphone privacy by being a member here.

Great post by the OP.

Fucking hell . Still no idea how to find it and delete it. My nearest and dearest assume I was in work this morning not fucking in a Hotel in west London. I'd like it to stay that way.

Any I phone 4 users know how to clear it?

Offline Banquo

There's nothing to clear on an iphone4. Don't worry about it. I'm guessing that the iphone4 doesn't do this tracking as it consumes a lot of battery power and apple decided that only newer phones would be capable of handling the power drain involved.

There has been tracking on iphones since ios4, but it has only been viewable (by the average user) on the phone since ios7 (assuming you have an iphone 4s or newer).

I have a feeling that an iPad and I phone or both was the cause of a guy emailing or texting me got caught.

Told some of my girlfriends about this feature this morning and thought nothing of it.One of the girls checked her fiancee's frequent locations and he had some explaining to do, now they're apparently breaking up as he had been cheating on her.  :scare: She called me to thank me. Ooops.
Talk about the dangers of technology!

Possibly due to syncing to the same apple account. I used to let several family members use my apple account to buy stuff on my apple id, but an earlier post on this forum explained the issues to me

If you send someone photos it can show where you live as well.

On a related subject - be aware that iPhones keep a history of websites you visit.

Go to Settings -> Safari -> Advanced -> Website Data  and tap "Show all sites"

If it's now easier to browse in private mode on iOS7, then maybe that's one positive ...

Are you sure?  On my iphone 4, I was once directed by a previous debate about tracking to some program I downloaded, and hey presto, it showed by locations....

What I did notice was that the accuracy was suspect, but it could still be misused against you. AT present I am still on OS6 and dont like 7.

There is one other bit of sinister info. In a number of instances, when the police arrest a suspect, they do a download of his/her mobile, and this can reveal GPS locations, and and deleted text messages, so could place you in the area of a crime, even though you may be innocent.

I, for one, are not happy with the way technology can track us, but there's not a lot I can do, and at least Mrs Taggart is not tech savvy. Nor does she see my bank balance.... :D

I use  "iShredder Pro" this app wipes all the free space on your phone, and with the way the iPhone using memory it also wipes anything that was deleted.

A very good and secure app.

The point I was trying to make is that the iphone4 is reasonably private for punting purposes. Private enough for me and I suspect the majority who would use one for punting purposes.

It does not have "Frequent Locations" funtionality, so a suspicious other half (for example) can not easily look into your location history.
Location data has been stored in a hidden file since ios4 - Frequent Locations just makes some of that data easily viewable.

I'm not overly concerned by the hidden data as I think it's unlikely that it would ever be accessed. I wouldn't be surprised if apps were available to access this, or if the police could do so if they wished. However, it's so unlikely to happen (that someone downloaded an app to my phone/hacked my backup or phone) that it does not worry me. I accept your point about the police perhaps barking up the wrong tree, but again I'm not too concerned and I have nothing to hide, other than the perfectly legal hobby of punting. For me, not enough reason to ditch a perfectly good phone.
