Turn off location tracking for wearable devices

Wearable technologies – like watches or wristbands – can be great assets for fitness, productivity and health monitoring. But they also pose a considerable risk to both data privacy and personal safety. Many wearables track the location of the user, among other types of data. This information could be very dangerous if exposed to malicious third parties. Opt out of geolocation tracking on your device to ensure your safety and privacy as much as possible. Better yet, turn it off when not in use.
