Every breath you take, every call you make, I’ll be watching you.

Has your cell phone been out of your sight for more than five minutes? Someone may be tracking you on it, right now. A chilling investigation from the Guardian (via Don’t Let’s Start) shows how easy cell-phone stalking has become:

For the past week I’ve been tracking my girlfriend through her mobile phone. I can see exactly where she is, at any time of day or night, within 150 yards, as long as her phone is on. It has been very interesting to find out about her day. Now I’m going to tell you how I did it. . . . First I had to get hold of her phone. . . . I only needed it for five minutes.

And as the article notes, existing methods of tracking are just the tip of the iceberg. Scary!
