Privacy, Security, Encryption As it turns out, new Verizon customers (although there are reports existing customers are getting notified too) have 30 days to opt out of something really nasty: Verizon will sell your browsing history and location history to marketers. Apparently, AT&T does something similar. Doesn't matter what phone - iOS, Android, anything. Incredibly scummy and nasty. I quickly checked my own Dutch T-Mobile terms, and they don't seem to be doing this.

It's a bit funny, though, that the two largest U.S. carriers are now slightly worse re: privacy invasion than pretty much all smartphone malware out in the wild. At least with normal sandboxing, most malware won't have access to your browsing history. Carriers have (although not for wifi).
