OUICK TAKE:: Markey Draft Would Make Companies Disclose Phone Tracking

January 30, 2012

Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass, released a discussion draft on Monday that would make companies disclose when they have installed monitoring software on a cell phone, the Washington Post reports.

The Mobile Device Privacy Act would also require companies to get consent from a user before the software can begin collecting or transmitting data. Carriers, manufacturers and operating system makers such as Apple and Google would have to tell buyers about the software at sale,  when software is pushed to the phone, or if a customer downloads an app that contains monitoring software, the Post reported.
