[$$] T-Mobile, AT&T Pledge to Stop Location Sharing by End of March

T-Mobile US Inc. and AT&T Inc. said they would stop feeding individual customers’ real-time locations to data middlemen, after a report suggested the sensitive information is easy to pull without users’ consent. Tech website Motherboard reported this week that it paid a bounty hunter $300 to locate a T-Mobile handset by tapping into a real-time feed that the carrier provided to an aggregator called Zumigo Inc. AT&T also said this week it would cut off data aggregators’ access to the information by March.
