FCC: At least one phone com­pany broke law by shar­ing lo­ca­tion

Antelope Valley Press - - BUSINESS -

WASH­ING­TON — The Fed­eral Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mis­sion says its in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that at least one U.S. phone com­pany likely broke the law by shar­ing data that can pin­point the lo­ca­tion of smart­phone users. Repub­li­can FCC Chair­man Ajit Pai said in a let­ter to Congress on Fri­day that one or more wire­less car­ri­ers ap­par­ently vi­o­lated fed­eral law and could be sub­ject to penal­ties. He didn’t name any com­pa­nies but said the com­mis­sion would de­cide soon on en­force­ment ac­tions.
