Deception: GPS tracking and "location twice a day"

GPS tracking someone's life with EVV in their home and in their community is wrong.  It is so wrong that states have been advised to refer to the GPS tracking being done as "location only twice a day".  The states never refer to the GPS tracking they are doing as "GPS tracking" which is very deceptive.  The EVV app. people are being forced to use does not work on a device that does not have GPS and GPS must be turned on when clocking in/out.  So, let's face it, everyone is being GPS tracked.  Many folks have to clock in/out more than twice a day, so that statement, "location only twice a day" is also not true.  Stop tracking the lives of law abiding citizens and calling it something else!
