GPS on your smart phone

Many of today's smart phones have the ability to check your location based on either how close you are to your service provider or through built in GPS, the technology behind satellite navigation, basically a mini sat-nav device.

Drivers who use satellite navigation devices in their car are warned about the risks of saving their favourite locations on the device, for example their Home address especially if they intend leaving the device in their car. The reason is quite simple that a thief would not only have stolen your car, but they now also know your home address.

The same principal applies to your mobile phone. If it has a built in location service, then think very carefully about adding your home address as an obvious favourite or bookmark. Instead consider bookmarking your home address under a made-up name.
