Researchers find that Android apps can secretly track users' whereabouts

It's no secret that our mobile devices track our locations; it's a sacrifice we make as soon as the phone is activated. However, it's always startling to know just how insecure our data can be, especially in Google Play.

Make sure that you only download trustworthy apps to protect yourself.
