Sprint Allowing Law Enforcement to track their Customer
Just when you thought Big Brother had more important things to worry about than sticking his nose into where you go and what you do a story like this one surfaces.
Between September of 2008 and October 2009 Sprint allowed law enforcement to track their customers movements over 8 million times by way of the GPS on their devices.
Kind of scary isn't it. While I am sure this has aided law enforcement the sheer magnitude of this announcement has to make you wonder who is watching. To date Sprint has given no explanation or explained what requirements the law enforcement agencies have to follow to gain access to this information.
As Berry users we should be especially concerned by this due to the outstanding security features that have been placed onto these devices. It is a shame that those security features seem to stop at our e-mail.
Or do they? I am going to have a look at a Sprint contract and see where it says I waive my right to Privacy.
