I want to add the following paragraph about security/privacy:

A hostile app may calculate the location of a user from the list of access points in range, and because of the short-range nature of WiFi this location will be quite accurate. I therefore propose that the first call to `scanResults()` triggers a system popup informing the user about possible privacy implications and asking for permission.
