Device Tracking and the Peril of Unknown Apps

The popular Apple Find My iPhone app helped catch a suspect accused of raping a college student and stealing her phone.  Adam Levin spoke with Chris May from CBS 3 in Philadelphia about the good and the not-so-good issues consumers can expect from the app, including the apps kill switch that allows a user to render a stolen item useless.

Also discussed: when apps aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, the importance of stringent privacy and security controls and the need for common sense. Levin urged consumers to be cautious when downloading apps, reading reviews and taking a little extra time to make sure they are legitimate.
