Location Services: OFF

In an August 3 memo from Deputy Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, the Department of Defense (DoD) banned personnel from “using geolocation features and functionality on both non-government and government-issued devices, applications, and services while in locations designated as operational areas (OAs).”  Outside of OAs, DoD has ordered the heads of DoD Components to “consider the inherent risks associated with geolocation capabilities on devices, applications, and services, both non-government and government issued, by personnel both on and off duty.”
