As a user of the UI i don’t want to be able to view any other user’s location data while still using precise location data to trigger automations.
Background: It seems to me to be extremely creepy that by default home assistant allows any user to view the location of any other user who is using some kind of specific tracker for presence detection (i,e, the mobile app). At the moment it’s just me and my partner and due to covid we’re together 95% of the time (so it’s not the end of the world) but if i had people come to stay or kids/teenagers then the ability to easily find their precise location (and vice versa) would be a dealbreaker.
Proposal: Home Assistant should implement some kind of config toggle for showing/hiding sensitive data via the UI, initially this would just be location data but should be extensible to any other field. This config toggle could default to off for existing installations to preserve the current functionality, but should default to on in future due to the privacy implications.
