If you want to track your spouse’s movements, his/her iPhone is your best friend. It can record and save the entire history of where your partner goes, the duration of stay at a location and the frequency of visits.
Interestingly, most people are unaware of this feature and most likely your partner too. The recordings can be so accurate that your home could be saved as “home” in your itinerary. If your iPhone falls into someone else’s hands, it will not be difficult for them to get access to your locations and the places you frequent too often.
Imagine getting your phone stolen or the information being hacked by someone.
The feature could prove to be a nightmare for men or women who have suspecting partners. They could easily get access to information about their locations, which could be the cause of frequent tussle between couples.
