    AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile promised to stop selling user data to location aggregators
    But a new investigation has discovered the firms were selling location data more broadly than previously understood, with hundreds of bounty hunters using it
    One company used 'A-GPS' data to locate where users are inside of a building

    A shocking new report has found hundreds of bounty hunters had access to highly sensitive user data - and it was sold to them by almost every major U.S. wireless carrier.

    The practice was first revealed last month and, at the time, telecom firms claimed they were isolated incidents.

    However, a Motherboard investigation has since discovered that's far from the case. About 250 bounty hunters were able to access users' precise location data.

    In one case, a bail bond firm requested location data some 18,000 times.

    AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint sold the sensitive data, which was meant for user by 911 operators and emergency services, to location aggregators, who then sold it to bounty hunters, according to Motherboard.
    The data will be available one way or another. That is interesting though.

    So did Facebook. they might be responsible for the murders of people who were searching information and looked up the wrong people who could pay a service like Spokeo to find people who looked them up on the internet.

    they want to charge you finding basic information that used to be free in the white pages but now they sell to people who have been looked up as well.

    if someone was looking up a bad person, that bad person could know who looked them up. You "Can't know who views your Facebook page" but facebook will sell out data they mined to these third party companies.

    maybe a private detective looking up info on a murder suspect who then gets a visit and offed and no one has any knowledge why that happened.


    Fucking facebook.

    You no longer have a choice.

    Even if you don't have a facebook account, or even own a smartphone, the signals from nearby smartphones and routers can track you everywhere you go simply using algorithms. Ads are customized based on this stuff and people are tracked their entire life now. Not necessarily for national security purposes but because it's a huge business. Regular wifi traffic, using the right algorithms, can use vibrometry to recreate everything you've said, track you based on your voice, track you through walls based on your bone structure and how you move.

    Wifi and smartphone signals become radars and surveillance devices in a lot of ways. The pokemon go thing was an experiment in social engineering/mind control but it would also probably have something to do with developing algorithms for mapping out terrain with smartphones.

    So you can't really opt out. Someone somewhere has your file, your data. Whether it's a drivers license photo/information from a database or something else, someone will accept cash payment or other favors to give your information away.

    Personally I couldn't give a fuck, if the CIA want to track me going to Aldi and wiping my ass (not at Aldi) then it's tax dollars well spent.
