Latterly, the news came up on the internet that a majority of telecom carriers are selling personal location of its customers without thinking even once about what kind of impact this could have on the users, thus enabling all kinds of stalkers and weirdos to live up to their psychopathic desires. A rather severe backlash has emerged against various carriers in the US demanding the chief grounds for embracing such a rash decision.
This groundbreaking fiasco first started out when a Motherboard journalist easily got hold of the positioning of a mobile phone that he placed somewhere in Queens, New York, by paying $300 to a shady guy whom he met in a dark back street. In order to make certain that such unethical practices come to an immediate end, an increasing number of Washington based lawmakers are presently forcing federal regulators to adopt a serious stance on this matter.
The Trump administration had nothing meaningful to say when approached by around fifteen US senators regarding the ongoing issue. To make sure that there isn’t any sort of confusion floating around, the inception of such shady deals of personal location happened solely because of the vigorous persuasion undertaken by major wireless carriers on the regulatory agencies. This too had quite a significant impact on the Obama-era privacy regulations which were intended to restrain the actions of major telecom carriers and prevent exactly this type of situation from taking place but sadly they were ultimately wiped out by the Trump Government.
Further, FCC chairman Ajit Pai made the state of affairs, even worse, by restoring FCC’s privacy rules which passed entire duties onto to the FTC.
