“Brightest Flashlight” Android app disclosed location the of 50 million people, but FTC imposes no fine.
Let the spying begin! Or - let's just be real: Is being spied on our new way of life?

"Requested resource not available."

Doesn't just about every app reveal your location? That's one of the choices you have when you run the app. I like people to know where I am. How else can I make new friends? Sometimes I just stand on a street corner, looking around, smiling. Lots of people notice me. :D
