You download an app to help you level a shelf in your home and within seconds the US military has access to your moment-to-moment location data. Even worse, the military is buying location data from apps that help Muslims find out which direction to pray...all without a warrant.
The privacy and civil rights violations are staggering. But it’s not just the US military. ICE, CBP, and the Secret Service were all recently caught buying location tracking data from shady “data mining” tech companies. They’re using a flimsy loophole to bypass the 4th Amendment and spy on all of us.
In today’s digital age, we have to think about our personal data like oil: “liquid gold.” Tech companies and governments alike go to grave efforts to mine our data and sell it to the highest bidder.
Senator Wyden just introduced a bill to stop this practice and others like it in its tracks. Congress can’t continue to sleep at the wheel on technology regulations. It’s time for you to speak up and protect your privacy online.
