GPS Enabled Cellphones

These days, every cell phone has a GPS (Global Positioning System) chip in it. Everywhere we go, we have the possibility of being tracked using this device. Some phones have the option of turning their GPS off but when you do, you must ask yourself “Is it really turned off? At any time could it be reenabled?” However, there are some upsides to this feature. If you are unable to talk on the phone when you need help, you can just dial 911 and someone will come and find you.

A question for us all: Is this feature of calling 911 and getting help when not being able to speak worth the security risks?
