FCC and FTC Invite Apple and Google to Explain Themselves
May 17, 2011, 4:42 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The Federal Communications Commission and Federal Trade Commission are setting up a special public forum, scheduled for next month, in order to dig out more information regarding how Apple, Google, and other mobile device makers and wireless network operators track and store user location data. The government bodies feel it is necessary to investigate how adequately companies such as Apple and Google disclose how location-based services work, whether or not the disclosures are comprehendible by most people, and whether or not they truly inform users about the pros and cons of allowing their location to be tracked. The forum comes after Apple and Google took heat for tracking and storing user location data.
