Telecom Companies Are Being Tricked Into Giving Away Location Data

The companies that have access to our personal data may be selling these data but sometimes they are just being deceived into giving it away. Stalkers, debt collectors, and other bounty hunters pose as law enforcement officers to get real-time location data.

In some cases, these people abuse telecom company policies created to give law enforcement real-time location data without a court order in “exigent circumstances,” such as when there is the imminent threat of physical harm to a victim.
