‘Be aware of who you share your location with’

Basically you are facing all of the same threats you would connecting to the internet at home. The main issue is location awareness. Lots of apps are ‘location aware’. They log and sometimes use where you are. Taking a photograph or┬áposting on FaceBook for instance can use your location. The best thing to do is check your settings to see which apps use your location and decide whether you want to share that information.
