Default Check this out..... crazy to me

I just found this in my settings in my IPhone. I never asked for it. Guessing they put it in an update.

I work in Big Data. We already know everything about you and more. We just don’t care enough about you as an individual to check you out.

Yeah I have zero intentions on activating the app. Just was surprised to see it on my phone.

Wife's hairdresser was also ranting about this, wants no part of being tracked, will not be one of the " New World Order". We must delete her from contacts before we activate app.

Posted on Facebook of course.

One of the very reasons I will never own an Apple product. Scary how they infiltrate lives and nobody cares!

There's some truth to this.

At what point does being another piece of data even matter?

If you have a cell phone, you have been tracked for well over 10 years. This is not breaking news.

Happens to us ALL the time.....
I wonder if I talk about "offing" someone, I'll start getting links for axes, poisons, cinder blocks, ropes and tarps?

Yup. Guess how those traffic indicators in GPS apps work. I could not care less. Track me all you want.
