Hello Mi Fans!
On today's Chit-Chat, I'd like to ask you guys about your opinions about the Fitness Tracking App - Strava. Just yesterday, Channel News Asia came out with an article - Fitness Tracking App could be 'serious security threat' to Singapore.
"In November 2017, Strava tapped public user data to launch a global visual heatmap. The aim was to display popular exercise routes, but last weekend it was pointed out the heatmap also included military personnel running or cycling with their smartphones or fitness trackers such as Fitbit - thus exposing the location and layout of covert military bases globally."Source: Channle News Asia - Justin Ong

You're actually able to see the patrol paths of security personnel, trails within Gombak Base, which is where the Ministry of Defence is situated at. Although the area is blurred out since its a red zone, information about personnel in the camp can still be visible!
Trails are visible even in places such as Tekong, and Paya Lebar Airbase!
Do you think that such technologies are a threat to security?
Let me know in the comments below!
