Spotwalla has 2 featiures which minimize security risks.
The first is that you can choose which types of messages you want posted to the MAP page I posted above. You can post HELP, Custom messages, OK Messages and Tracking. If you are going to post HELP messages you need to post at least one of the other 3 so that other inmates can see that help has arrived and you don't need further assistance.

The 2nd feature is that you can restirct ANY messages from being posted for a particular area (the size of which you get to choose). With this feature you can protect your home address by making sure that messages from say 'within 2 miles from home' are never posted to the map. You can also protect things like your work pace, your granny's house and houses of ill repute.
