TechCrunch: Mobile phone companies appear to be providing your number and location to anyone who pays

TechCrunch: Mobile phone companies appear to be providing your number and location to anyone who pays. “You may remember that last year, Verizon (which owns Oath, which owns TechCrunch) was punished by the FCC for injecting information into its subscribers’ traffic that allowed them to be tracked without their consent. That practice appears to be alive and well despite being disallowed in a ruling last March: companies appear to be able to request your number, location, and other details from your mobile provider quite easily.”
