Apple has the Journal app, and one of it’s features is something called Discoverable by Others. Yet again, we have people trying to pull scare tactics about what your phone shares or does not share. The storyline goes that having this feature allows others to know your full name and exactly where you are. This feature doesn’t open up to everyone, however, but only people who are specifically within your contacts, and even then, it has nothing to do with your location at the moment, but when you met up with Joe and Jane for dinner. Sure, turn if off if you’re concerned, but don’t believe the negative hype.

A new social media scare about Apple’s Journal app doesn’t have all the facts.
