Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., criticized wireless carriers for their poor privacy practices, MediaPost reports. Wyden wrote a letter to executives at AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile asking the companies to provide information about instances when location data was shared with third parties that obtained the information by means of deception. Wyden told the carriers they have a legal obligation to protect customers’ data and notify federal law enforcement of data breaches. “Given your companies' atrocious track record protecting location data, Americans have good reason to doubt your compliance with your legal obligation to report such breaches,” Wyden wrote in the letter.
