    "Googles Timeline feature can provide investigators unprecedented access to users location history data, allowing them in many cases to track a persons every move over the course of years, according to a report recently circulated to law enforcement."

    you can also shut that feature off and not worry if you want. Also delete the previously acquired data.

    Sorry dude, the moment you turn on a phone the police, NSA, CISIS and the phone company knows where you are within 15 feet. You only need 3 cell phone towers to triangulate your position. With GPS they can find you within 3 feet.

    Law enforcement can get more-or-less the same information from your carrier, and you don't have the option of shutting that off. And this is true even on "dumb phones" made in the last dozen or more years. But, yes, we don't have enough fear-mongering...

    I've seen enough Breaking Bad episodes to know how to handle this issue. Just break the phone in half and throw it away.

    This story pops up and gets recycled every year (it's definitely nothing new). "Location History" is an opt-in service, and as mentioned, can be turned off and cleared/deleted at any time. If you don't like the idea of Location History services, just don't turn it on. You can have "Location" service turned on (for gps etc) and still have Location History off.

    So the criminals will lure law enforcement into an ambush just as the US Army Cavalry did to the North American Indian. Situational awareness keeps you alive, stupidity makes you dead.

    A rogue government agent might want to track down your attractive girlfriend. Law enforcement officers can be stalkers like the "unwashed masses." Remember you are the enemy of the government.

    It's a question about basic rights. Do you have the basic right to keep your personal information private, or does the government have the basic right to know your personal information, whether or not you have anything to 'hide'?

    Basics yes, but this day in age... I'd rather have proof somewhere of where I have been. Either way, they already have all my info...

    It's that kind of ignorance that has allowed an oppressive system to sneak in through the back door.

    I was joking... we all know any government entity can obtain what they wish through the proper channels, regardless of what we do. So if this is sensitive matter for you... just toss away any modern technology you have.

    I belong to a local/state jurisdiction, so it doesn't matter what I do... they already have me.

    And please enjoy some humor.

    Don't forget the water, I read they're planting micro transmitters in the city water and once you take a sip they got you...

    Oh, and don't look directly at the bell at Taco Bell. Yep, the government has facial recognition software that will transmit your order to the FDA, so Michelle Obama will know you're not eating healthy...

    I've never bought into that argument.

    There have been plenty of people convicted on circumstantial evidence and - sadly - most judges and jurors see phrases like "digital trail" as 100% incontrovertible truth because they fail to grasp the nuances of such obvious things such as gps inaccuracies, etc.

    Wow, you're right. Heck, don't just take some of my rights...they can take away all of my constitutional rights, I don't need them! I'm a law abiding citizen, after all, so why do I need rights? Burn the Bill of Rights, throw out the Constitution. I'm sure it'll work out just fine. I've never known politicians, the government, or the police to ever abuse the system for their/its own gain at the expense of tax-paying citizens.

    Do people like this even realize what they're saying?

    So:
    1. this option is disabled by default (tested this with a new Android device)
    2. users can enable and disable this at any time
    3. users can delete all this data if they so desire

    I honestly don't understand what exactly is the problem here.
