Considering the concept of the gps tracking of the mobiles, this is actually the invasion of the privacy of the people without telling them to do so. According to the fourth amendment in the laws it is against the law that tracking of the device can be done by anyone. This help in tracking the location of the people and also the devices which can help in finding the thefts of the devices of the people. All it needs is the IMEI number of the mobile. There are different softwares which are present in the mobile that can help in tracking the mobiles. From the ethical and moral point of view, GPS trackers help finding the people and also track them which can be very helpful in the cases as evidence in the courts. The government officials cannot check the personal belonging of the people or arrest them without any warrant if the there is any probable cause, according to the fourth amendment in the law. People always ask the things that if the police cannot arrest or get into the personal place of the people then how they can do surveillance of minute to minute tracking of the people without any warrant with them.
In the united states court there was case between the government and Johns, under which the court has given the orders that the GPS tracking of the mobiles and the location will not be consider as the substantial evidence in the court to prove guilty, it is protected under fourth amendment. An argument has been raise during the time that GPS tracking is the same as one person is following the other to get the updates of his location without any warrant, which is without the use of technology. There was a recent new about Edwards Snowden who whistle blow that American government was keeping the track of every American who is carrying the phone with him. Where ever they go with their mobiles, they are tracking all whereabouts of the people and people do not even know that they are been tracked by the government. This shows that the people are losing some of their privacy even no one check that whereabouts while being tracked. In the essay of Foucaults he gave the example of the plague ridden area of town in which surveillance is done to maintain order through micro controlling. In which no people can able to live their life at the fullest. They were just following the orders of the attendants. This type of control allowed every little privacy and rights, it was quite effective way of keeping the plague from spreading.
