Intego Mac Podcast, Episode 62: How Mobile Apps Track Your Location

New iPad Pros bend, but Apple says it’s okay. Android’s Face Unlock is much less secure than Apple’s Face ID, and can be fooled with a 3D-printed head. And we look at a bank’s password blunder. Then we look at how mobile apps track your location, and sell that data.

Check out the latest episode of The Intego Mac Podcast, which I co-host with Josh Long. We talk about Macs and iOS devices, and how to keep them secure.

  1. Something perhaps to discuss in a future episode. Maybe is old hat, but was new to me.

    My mother-in-law lives in Korea. She had a Samsung phone, and went into an LG shop to get a new phone. Shop employee asked if she wanted the shop to set up her new phone for her. She said yes.

    Employer brought out a non-descript black box and connected her Samsung phone to it via cable. All data was copied from the phone to the box. New LG phone then was connected to the box, and the data was copied onto the LG phone.

    When finished (it took about an hour), my mother-in-law had her new LG phone, complete with all the apps and all the app data that was on the Samsung phone.

    Any security concerns here, or is this now a standard (and secure) practice?
