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.

How do you know they don't already? Hell, I would be surprised if they didn't.

Same can probably be said for any carrier in the world, I would think.

At least these two are notifying customers of the opt out option (though you have to wonder if that really does anything). Pretty sure some carriers have been doing it without informing anyone.
