“Your Phone May Be Tracking Your Every Move; Here’s How to Stop It”


Jules Interview

During the International Association of Privacy Professional’s Global Privacy Summit 2017, FPF’s CEO, Jules Polonetsky, took a moment to speak with NBC 4 Los Angeles about the privacy implications of granting apps permission to track your location. Jules explained:

“If there’s an appropriate message, they offer everybody who’s been at a bar at midnight downtown a cheap taxi ride home, well that’s kind of cool,” Polonetsky said. “If it’s we know you were at a doctor’s office or at a strip club, or at a casino, or any place where you may be somewhat sensitive about where you are, the idea that that will be used to try to target you later on certainly can be creepy and more than offensive.”
