    based on that (and this is just a guess) its probably got more security holes than windows itself.

    I have done so already.
    If it helps the cause.

    I use Google Maps all day, everyday and they collect heaps of details. Where, when etc etc.

    there are two rather minor security issues other than it needing the phone unlocked and it using amazon aws

    it would be one of the safer apps out there it appears but i am not leaving my phone unlocked sorry

    maybe when the next version trickles down.....

    Well if it doesnít work when the phone is locked it wonít be doing much for anyone I shouldnít think. Work just pushed it to all work phones but said itís up to individuals to sign up or not, but the work phones also self lock after 30 seconds and this canít be changed as itís a work policy so not much good then.

    Mine has a pin (iPhone Se) but I understand that as long as the app is active and not deleted that it will work.
    To deactivate the app you have to swipe it .
    I still get messages and texts when closed/locked.

    Agree

    Iím on an iPhone and the app displays a message asking to leave the app running and Bluetooth turned on.

    If phone needed to be left unlocked I assume the message would indicate this.

    If ever you're up my way and want to have an AULRO get together, please don't use Google Maps to find my place as you'll probably end up in a hidden ditch, in the paddock over the back of our far ridge. I've had to recover several 'GPS believers' from that paddock, over the years. The blind faith shown beggars belief!!!

    BOT (Back on Topic) I have decided not to download the app as it's not applicable to my situation.
