Default iPhone tracks your every move - How worried are you?

The iPhone (and the 3G enabled iPad) is tracking your every move, and secretly logging this information to a file kept on the handset. When you sync your handset with your PC or Mac, that file is copied over to your system. Anyone with access to your handset or computer could get their hands on this information.

How uneasy does that make you feel?

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

Not uneasy, just glad to know it's there. Just downloaded the app the dudes wrote to view the info, it's not very accurate but it does give a general idea of where I've traveled in the last year. That part is fully sweet! But yeah the part about it happening and me not knowing is not so sweet...
