Cops Are Buying Your Social Media Location Data Without a Warrant

 — 18 août 2020
A shocking number of apps on U.S. phones, ranging from sports to weather, are probably quietly selling location data to the highest bidder. And according to documents obtained by Motherboard, that bidder is sometimes federal law enforcement.

The Secret Service paid millions of dollars to a company called Babel Street for its “Locate X” product, which tracks mobile devices using location data scraped from a number of apps, according to the documents. And because the agency is buying the data rather than obtaining it through the courts, it can do so without a warrant.
