Cell Phone Privacy in Exchange for A Good Deal?

Cell Phone privacy, people search, reverse phone number search, email people search

PRLog - June 5, 2014 - How much privacy are you willing to sacrifice in order to get a good deal, coupon, or have added convenience?  As more and more cell phone apps tap into wireless, GPS, or cell tower location abilities, we must ask ourselves how much is our privacy actually worth?  The average cell phone user seems so adept to downloading apps on their smartphone that we often fail to read the disclaimers as we download these apps.  We seem to click right past the warnings letting us know this app may access our location, camera, GPS, or dialer at anytime.  Many retail marketing departments are taking advantage of having a GPS locator on their customer as they travel near their store and inside their retail location to gain added insight into their shopping habits.  But, how much personal information is too much?

NetSearch411.com, a new way to be listed in the world's largest online phonebook, is concerned about the privacy of cell phone users and wants to make sure the public is reminded of how to protect their privacy when carrying their 5 inch gps tracking device for marketers (also known as a cell phone).  When downloading smartphone apps, specifically from retailers, pay attention to the privacy disclaimers prior to downloading.  Put yourself in the shoes of this stores marketing department and ask yourself, what would they do with information from your cell phone if they were able to access these devices.  As well, any time you access a coffee shop Wi-Fi spot or local retailer Wi-Fi location, you are giving them permission to access your personal cell phone data as well as anything you may search for while on their internet access.  Many retailers are tracking in-store customers without their knowledge as they had previously opted-in to marketing information through a downloadable coupon app.  Receiving coupons or shopping points as soon as you enter the store may sound great, but do you really want them knowing how long you spend in isles containing personal items?   In an effort to maintain your privacy, cell phone owners should read the privacy disclaimers on marketing or coupon apps and turn their wi-fi and GPS devices off when not in use.

NetSearch411.com is the largest free people search (http://www.netsearch411.com) engine that allows users to maintain their privacy through the unique permission based people search.  This new alternative to publicly posting your cell phone number or email address allows users to personally allow or deny access to their personal information when someone conducts a people search for their cell phone number or email address.  For more information or to sign up for a free unlimited people search membership go to http://www.netsearch411.com
