Senators Al Franken and Richard Blumenthal today introduced a new bill called the Location Privacy Protection Act of 2011. The aim of the legislation is to protect the privacy of mobile phone users, especially with respect to location data.

The legislation comes as a response to the discovery that the Apple iPhone and Google Android devices record and store some user location data.
