Disable ATT Wireless GPS Tracking Via Loopt On Your iPhone

While looking over my iPhone ATT Wireless plan features I noticed that they enable the application Loopt access by default. Loopt is a social media application that provides a method to view the location of your friends or your friends the ability to see your location on your iPhone using GPS technology. Even though you are still required to provide access to each person that can view your location I view this as a security risk and would think that ATT should keep this disabled by default and require a person to explicitly enable this feature instead. Below is information on how to disable this so called feature via the ATT Wireless web site.
