NSA Releases Guidance to Defense and Security Personnel on How to Limit Collection of Mobile Location Data

The National Security Agency (NSA) released guidance to Department of Defense and other national security programs on how to limit the collection of location data from their devices. The NSA warns that in addition to mobile devices storing location data in their own mobile device logs, cellular networks receive real-time coordinates for cellphones every time they connect to the system, meaning that users can be tracked across a wide area. Another interesting piece of advice: limit web-browsing on the device as much as possible because that can yield several different forms of location data.
