(Washington, DC) — The Pentagon is urging commanders to think carefully before allowing troops to carry fitness trackers or cellphone applications that detail locations. The memo went out today and stops short of a complete ban. Military leaders must examine the threat allowing GPS-location devices to go out on sensitive missions or be carried by people in sensitive positions. The devices can also show routines of key personnel that could make it easier to target them. The directive is only for personnel is sensitive jobs and not for all employees.
