Apple installed a "COVID" tracker without asking and they've been tracking you for years

I don't work in IT, so I don't know how they do all they things that they do.

I found this article that seems to make sense in regards to why just turning off your phone is not enough.

According to the article, removing the battery may prevent the ability to track a phone, but I don't know how that works when the battery is reinstalled, because I have heard of people that have reported their phone continued to track their movements on google when their battery is dead.

Lately I have been leaving it at home whenever possible.


Because who wants to know if they have potentially been exposed to Covid? Ignorance is bliss. Denying it, even more.

Interesting feature, though. I never knew about it, so thanks for the thread.

(Mine is still off)

I still have my 20 year old Motorola Flip.

I turn it on from time to time for #s and giggles.

Should I?


It also doubles as a lethal weapon.

My iPhone does not have this Covid tracker.

Not sure why someone else’s would.

Maybe a regional update.
