    Malware scam appears to use GPS data to catch speeding Pennsylvania drivers

    There are a myriad of reasons for disabling the GPS function on your phone, however security and privacy are the two big reasons. If you absolutely need GPS for directions, get a stand alone device.

    I'm still sticking with not loading every single app under the sun on my phone, especially 'hyperlocal' ones that it seems everyone hit with this specific scam appears to have loaded.
    Tied with only allowing trusted/specific ones to even use my GPS. Hint: even some of the built-in ones don't make the cut.
