Experts Say Fitness Tracker Map Reveals Secret Military Bases

From this item: Most areas in the US and Europe are brightly lit by the paths of joggers, cyclists, and such. But in the dark expanses of deserts and war zones, the few small spots of light appear to show the locations of US military facilities—both known and secret—and the movements of troops in and out of them.

That can be a negative side effect of tracking but just think all the tracking that can be done with cell phones now?

And our cars! Our truck's map program lays down "bread crumbs" on the electronic map along the roads we travel. It worked great on Forest Service "roads" to make sure we travel back out the way we went in. But it does concern me at times and I have to keep telling myself ... I have nothing to hide (I hope!).
