小编摘要:使用智能手机的人越来越多,专家表示很可能会因为使用iPhone或者其他智能手机而导致泄露个人隐私,大家用手机的时候务必要当心了!有些app可能会带来很多便利,但同时也有危险哦~

Now to these new disclosures about cellphones and privacy raising new concerns about how much our personal electronics reveal about us. And it turns out it's not just the iPhone and iPad that are reporting your location, but cellphones using Google software as well. And now some members of Congress are asking what’s going on here and why we’re all being tracked so closely. Our report on all of it tonight from NBC's Pete Williams.
 
It’s not just Apple's mobile devices that store and send out data on where they are, so it turns out to phones operating with Google’s Android software. A convicted computer-hacker-turned-consultant says he discovered that Android phones actually report their locations to Google several times an hour.

People don’t know that when they have this phone in their pocket, that it’s constantly sending this information out, and it’s constantly sending their coordinates and information about all the wireless networks around them.

That news and this week’s disclosure that Apple’s iPhone and iPad actually store a year’s worth of data on where users have been have some consumer groups wondering if Apple can still claim to be the anti-Big Brother it did in this iconic 1984 TV ad. 

It’s definitely weird that, you know, something can track me and my location at all times.

When I heard that they could be following our every move, the first thing I did was shut off the satellite tracking in my phone.

And members of Congress have new questions about potential misuse.

I’m concerned that an iPhone can become an iTracker, and that can turn into an iTragedy for children and families across the country.
 
Google says Android users are clearly told about the location information.  When they start up their phones, they can turn off a feature that says, quote, allow Google’s location service to collect anonymous location data, collection will occur even no applications are running. Computer experts say that information enables the use of map functions, getting directions and finding nearby businesses.

Google insists that the information the Android phones transmit cannot identify a specific user. This has been a week when phone users discovered features they never knew they had.
