    Officials in India hope to combat the threat of sexual violence against
    women and girls by requiring panic buttons to be installed in every new
    phone by January, and for every phone to be equipped with GPS by 2018.

    Can the GPS be turned off by the user? Being able to track the movements
    of all citizens in real time would be the KGB's wetdream.

    It can be but it's not made obvious or easy. You'd have to google to
    find out how to do it on your phone. Question is, can you really
    trust it to be turned off or does it just tell you it's off?

    Through campaign contributions."
