• Apple and Google Agree to Testify the Phone Location Tracking Issues at the May 10 Senate Hearing about Consumer Privacy on Mobile Devices

    Posted on April 29th, 2011 David Brooks No comments

    The phone location tracking issue for Apple iPhone iPad and Google Android mobile phones has lasted for a period, and it would last longer than we think, especially at Apple’s privacy policy. Google responded to the phone location tracking at Monday while Apple replied this a week after the issue and denied its mobile devices are tracking and collecting data on users’ locations. Both companies have agreed to testify at a May 10 Senate hearing about consumer privacy on mobile devices.

    Apple iPhone Location Tracking

    Ever since the reports of location tracking issue of Apple and Android devices, the US Senate had weighed in. The Committee had written to Microsoft, Nokia, RIM and HP as well as Apple and Google, but only the latter two had been asked to attend the hearings and explain what data they are collecting, how they’re ensuring that data is secured, and how users opt out of being tracked.

    Google Inc. was sued by two Android phone users who said their phones secretly recorded and stored their movements. According to concern over data collection, a Google spokesman Chris Gaither said in an e-mail: “We provide users with notice and control over the collection, sharing and use of location. Any location data that is sent back to Google location servers is anonymized and is not tied or traceable to a specific user.

    However, Apple has denied collecting data from users. “Apple is not tracking the location of your iPhone,” the company said in a statement.Apple has never done so and has no plans to ever do so.” Apple insisted it “strongly” believes that personal privacy is important, but now, the personal privacy of Apple has been skeptical from lawmakers and users.

    The public debate of the mobile phone location tracking has been a long concern. Hope the May 10 hearing would provide a good result.
