Quote: The only situation in which it could become an invasion of privacy is if a company insisted it is enabled on a work mobile.

It already happens - just like delivery drivers now often have GPS in the cab and the employer can see exactly where they are and how long they are taking between jobs with consequences if they have low delivery rates.

As long as you knew about it before you accepted the phone and the policy regarding it expained to you then there is no privacy issue unfortunately. If however, they have put it on your phone without your knowledge then thats a different matter.

Oh well, I guess you can always switch off the mobile and claim it was a signal black spot if questioned! Lol! Wink

What ever happend to trust? The gathering of information on location and other related matters has got out of hand. My wife has a Sony Experia Arc Andriod phone (as I do) she was having a look at the various programs etc and found that the phone had kept a log of everywhere she had been on a day to London and how long she had stayed in a particular area. Thats good old Google for you. Telling you that they do not keep private info but do it never the less. They have been fined many timesfor it as well.
