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.

Pretty sure some carriers have been doing it without informing anyone.


My point exactly. In fact, I bet they're ALL doing it, unless they specifically have said they aren't, and even then, I still wouldn't be surprised if they're doing it anyway. Me? I have an ad blocker on my phone, so they're welcome to collect all the info they want ;)
