Rosenworcel Calls for Probe of Location Data Access

FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel said in a tweet that the FCC should conduct an investigation in the wake of a story by the Motherboard news website that said “T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T are selling access to their customers’ location data, and that data is ending up in the hands of bounty hunters and others not authorized to possess it, letting them track most phones in the country.”   In another tweet on the story, Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) said, “Disturbing details from @motherboard on how wireless carriers are selling the location data of Americans. This is a nightmare for national security and the personal safety of anyone with a phone.”
