A popular fitness app provided a convenient map for anyone interested in shadowing government personnel who exercised in secret locations, including intelligence agencies, military bases and airfields, nuclear weapons storage sites, and embassies around the world. The fitness app, Polar Flow, publicized more data about its users in a more accessible way than comparable apps "with potentially disastrous results," found investigators. Polar Flow provided functionality that combined all of a person's exercise sessions on a single map.

How much are you willing to spend on a smartphone?
I'll spring for a top-of-the-line model, because my phone is extremely important to me.
I'm content with a phone that's a couple of years old and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
I'm a bargain smartphone shopper -- I'll take the best phone I can find that's free or close to it.
I'm considering giving up my smartphone and getting a basic mobile phone instead.
I don't own a smartphone and I don't want one.
