Sprint to Stop Selling Location Data to Third Parties After Motherboard Investigation - Motherboard
After AT&T and T-Mobile said they would stop selling their customers’ phone location data to third parties, Sprint followed suit. A Motherboard investigation found all three telcos selling data that ultimately ended up in the hands of bounty hunters.
Last week, Motherboard revealed that AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint had been selling their customers’ real-time location data that ultimately ended up in the hands of bounty hunters and people unauthorized to handle it. Motherboard found this by purchasing the capability to geolocate a phone for $300 on the black market. In response, AT&T and T-Mobile said they were stopping all sales of location data to third parties.
Nearly a week later Sprint has committed to doing the same, in a statement to Motherboard.
“As a result of recent events, we have decided to end our arrangements with data aggregators,” a Sprint spokesperson told Motherboard in an email.
Sprint did not provide a timeline of when this data access selling may end, but T-Mobile and AT&T have previously said their processes will be complete in March.
In Motherboard’s investigation, the phone we located was on the T-Mobile network. The access to location data was sold through a complex network of different companies. T-Mobile sold the access to a so-called location aggregator called Zumigo. Zumigo then sold it to a company called Microbilt, which caters to various clients including bounty hunters. A bounty hunter then sold the phone location data to a source, who then provided it to Motherboard.

Daring Fireball: AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint to Stop Selling Location Data to Third Parties After Motherboard Investigation

It’s an outrage that this happened in the first place, and should be investigated by authorities. But the fact that the carriers quickly moved to stop the practice shows the power of investigative journalism. Kudos to Motherboard.
