Do you wear a Fitbit?
If you do, satellites may be watching you.
Yesterday, Strava, a social network that collects data from devices with GPS, uploaded a heat map of its users around the world to the internet. Intelligence services are now combing that map for data about hidden military bases and other tidbits. It’s apparently not just fitbits, but mobile phones and a lot of other devices.
The Guardian gives a few examples. A few more after the jump.
This is Britain’s GCHQ, the equivalent of the US’s NSA.
Adam Rawnsley and Tobias Schneider are particularly active in locating sites, but you can find more if you search Strava heat map on Twitter.
