Shocking security lapse as running app Polar Flow exposes the locations and personal details of 6,400 spies and personnel at MI6, the White House and GCHQ

  • Fitness app revealed the names and whereabouts of 6,400 government workers
  • Locations were exposed by the app's heart rate monitor and jogging heat maps 
  • They include military bases, nuclear weapons storage sites and embassies
  • Finnish software company Flow said it was 'tweaking' the app following the leak

A running app has exposed the names and locations of spies and military personnel at MI6, the White House and GCHQ - the second such security lapse this year.

Fitness tracking app Polar Flow revealed the whereabouts of 6,400 users exercising at sensitive intelligence and government facilities around the world.

Locations exposed by the software's jogging heat maps include military bases and airfields, nuclear weapons storage sites and embassies.

Finnish software firm Flow, with offices in the UK and New York, said it had taken the app's map function down after an investigation found it harboured compromising data stretching as far back as 2014.

The revelation comes months after a similar app, Strava, exposed the running routes of British and American soldiers in the Middle East and Africa, potentially opening them up to attacks from local militants.
