Report: Cellphone companies are still selling customers' location data and lawmakers want to know why

Their comments are coming in response to a report by the website Motherboard that shows T-Mobile, AT&T;, Sprint, and other companies are still selling location data to third parties.

I didn't sign up for this when I signed up for wireless service and I bet neither did you," FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel told CBS News.

She wants to investigate how cellphone companies sell your location.

"Location data is now so precise, this is a dream for spies and stalkers and predators," Wyden told the news outlet.

"What we were told in 2018 is that they would stop selling location data and now we're seeing evidence that it's still happening," he added.
