    Just installed Untrackered on my jailbroken VZiP. Anyone else going to do this? Am I Being too paranoid?

    For those that don't know - our iPhones track and record your movements 24/7 and can be accessed on your phone or on your pc. There's no way to opt out of this.

    You are paranoid! Haha. It's ok though. I think it's a little strange but also think there is no reason to care because I would be shocked if it were to come back at me in the face.

    What is actually being done is a database is gathered over time of locations you connect to the internet from - and what is recorded is the location of the Wifi hotspot, and cell towers. This database is used give Location Based Services a faster means of delivering LBS data to you.

    The first thing everyone should do next time they sync their iPhone with iTunes is check-off the option to encrypt your back-up files. That solves the issue of the file being on your computer where someone could get it.

    The next thing you can do - if jailbroken - is install the free 'Untrackered' app from Cydia. That will periodically clear the data on your phone.

    I've "Untrackered" and was already encrypting back-ups.... for me, this is really no big deal.

    I have done a file search and can't find it (consolidated.db) on my computer. Where is it located. I am running Windows XP.

    It takes quite a bit of work to get it - it's buried within the iTunes back-ups - and if you're encrypting yours, you won't be able to get it.

    If you read the original reporting on it, there's a link to a program that will extract the data and display it for you, if not encrypted.

    You would be surprise how easy it is to access when your device is jailbroken.

    Yes and Yes, install untrackerd (that's how they spell it) and encrypt backups. I think they should still make the cache something along the lines of Android. I believe I read an upcoming OS update would fix this "bug".
