Hidden location services on the iPhone: Conclusion
Quite creepy, which data even an iPhone collects about its owners! Even lay people could easily build a pattern of movement from their data and immediately know where they live or work. One can only hope that these data never fall into the wrong hands. After all, the location memory is protected by your security lock, such as FaceID, TouchID or a password, and is not easily accessible to everyone. Tip: Simply turn off the “Important Places” item in the settings – there are no more hidden locations anymore.
