Senators Call on FCC and FTC to Investigate How Wireless Carriers Sold American’s Mobile Phone Locations To Data Brokers, Bounty Hunters and Shady Middlemen

Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. and others wrote to the FTC and FCC, asking for a full investigation of the data-sharing arrangements that allowed for the apparently widespread sale and sharing of Americans’ cell phone locations.

“A recent investigation published by Motherboard… demonstrated not only that the wireless carriers are still failing to protect their customers’ private information, but also that location data can be purchased by stalkers, domestic abusers, and others,” the senators wrote today. “It is clear that these wireless carriers have failed to regulate themselves or police the practices of its business partners, and, in failing to do so, have needlessly exposed American consumers to serious harm.”
