Privacy zone: stop reporting *near* home/work‏

Having read the Waze ideology of location reporting at journey endpoints with respect to privacy I have deemed it wanting greatly.

Please consider a feature to allow one to create flexible (arbitrarily variable) zones around one's home, workplace, church, etc, where upon entering one's position is no longer publicly visible.

I am confident a variation of this will mitigate privacy journey endpoint concerns

        This could be implemented with the 'home' and 'work' location functions to avoid users appearing on the map when they've been stationary at a predefined location for a long period of time.

        Currently google collects but CLAIMS to delete 500m from end points. This is similar to the absurdity of opt-out.

        No, don't collect & delete

        Do: not-collect

        Not only hide but more importantly

        STOP REPORTING in zones

        I already have the cached map and route.

        CEASE COMMUNICATING with the routing server

        "privacy rape" by google takes on a frightening dimension if google acquires user navigation history alone.

        this is ALL THE MORE ESSENTIAL since the acquisition of waze by EVIL GOOGLE.

        All the better to "opt" you into privacy whoring yourself, my dear.
