Commerce Committee to Hold Hearing on Mobile Privacy

The Senate Commerce Committee “will hold a May hearing on consumer privacy on mobile phones, Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) announced Thursday,” according to The Hill.

The announcement follows the discovery that iPhones track and store information about users’ whereabouts, a discovery Apple says it will fix through a software update.

Rockefeller called this incident "just the latest in a string of concerns raised in the mobile marketplace." He said the mobile marketplace "collects and uses a wide range of personal information — often with inadequate or untimely disclosure."
