Noted jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich has released a new jailbreak-only utility tonight nameduntrackerd
, which promises to block iOS and Apple’s ability to log your device’s location information. Petrich’s application comes in light of a new discovery that Apple’s mobile operating system tracks iOS device’s longitude and latitude
. That location information is then stored on your computer’s hard drive and can later be accessed by just about anyone with the right computer skills or software. Untrackerd
for free on the Cydia jailbreak store. Thanks, Will.
Untrackerd’s description in Cydia:
This package installs a daemon (process that can run in the background) to clean consolidated.db file) No new icons are added to your homescreen. There are no options to configure.
