Chairman Pai’s Response Regarding the Investigation on Wireless Carriers Sharing Location Information Without Adequate Safeguards
On January 24, 2019, 15 senators sent Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai a letter urging the FCC and the Federal Trade Commission to broadly investigate the sale of Americans' location data by wifeless carriers, location aggregators, and other third parties. On Feb 27, Chairman Pai replied: "As you know, the Commission launched an investigation of these practices last year. The Commission takes its responsibility in this regard seriously. Accordingly, and to maintain the integrity of such investigations, the Commission’s practice is not to comment further until the investigation has concluded."
