Google’s Trust Contacts app tracks your location, travel history and shares it even without your phone powered on
Androidcentral.com is thrilled that Google’s new Trust Contacts app is going to make everyone “safe” by giving your friends and family, or anyone who requests the info, your location at any time. You can say no, but if you don’t respond, the location will be shared, even if your phone is off. How convenient.
This “keeping you safe” rationale is the same rationale that pharmaceutical giant Merck uses to market its dangerous and occasionally deadly HPV vaccination, Gardasil, which is supposed to keep your 11 and 12 year-old daughters – and sons -“safe” from HPV, cervical cancer or genital warts. Homeland Security was built to keep us “safe.” The war on terror is about keeping Americans “safe” from terror. The war on poverty was supposed to keep folks “safe from poverty. The war on drugs was supposed to keep people “safe” from drugs.
