Option To Only Show Location Name In Notifications/Alerts
Hello, I had a suggestion to see if we could enable, or have, an option to only show the location name in texts/SMS, e-mail alerts, or other notifications. There are many reasons for security and privacy of why this would be beneficial to at least have this option.
If someone were to see your notifications or alerts over your shoulder, for example, then they would know your address, whether you're there, etc.. This would be true to for any ladies (or anyone for that matter) if someone finds or sees these alerts, whether it is in an e-mail, stolen/lost phone, shoulder surfing over your shoulder, etc.. This is also true for anyone that has access to your e-mail, or a compromised e-mail (since now they have additional information about the person and can use that in correlation to the e-mail address itself and any other information they may know or find; whether for identity theft, or any other criminal or privacy matter).
In addition, if someone were to see you at the same place everyday, or know you go somewhere, then they now have your address and possibly know when you may not be home or at that address. Someone could also use this information to go to your address prior to you arriving. This could be used for many malicious, dangerous, privacy, or security concerns. Many people don’t realize what you can use or find, especially when used in addition to other information (even if you’re a stranger; or only if using other publicly available information).
For some accounts there is only one address anyway, so the address wouldn’t specifically be needed and only causes other concerns. For other accounts with multiple addresses, the location name could be set to not reveal any private information. I know I had mentioned this several years ago and I was told this was going to be passed on, but I know I am only one person. Thank you for your consideration!
