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.

Nope. What you searched for and what pages you visited is also interesting. The fact that you connected to one of the servers of BBC falls under a lot of categories - news, sports, entertainment, weather and a lot more. Or take visiting any of Google's services - there is known difference only with regard to GMail, while most other services have been moved under the www.google.com domain(ex. https://www.google.com/calendar/ is indistinguishable from https://www.google.com/search?q=test)
